I came across this well made scene and it just blew me away. It is from a TV series called Mr Robot which is about a young, anti-social computer programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer during the day, but at night he is a vigilante hacker.
What he has to say I think will resonate with everyone who listens:
Interviewer: What is it about society that disappoints you so much?
Elliott: Oh I don’t know … Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit? The world itself just one big hoax, spamming each other with our burning commentary bullshit, masquerading this insight; our social media faking this intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new, we all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy, but because we want to be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. F*ck society.
