It’s the Trump Derangement Syndrome all over again.
you see the same pattern of self-aggrandisement in dilbert’s posturing. and it’s ultimately all about insecurity. everything he’s done in his life is quietly, if not loudly, heroic. endless sacrifice. unrecognised genius. he’s hardcore baby. those other people who stepped up? who served? nah, they’re compromised in some way. they are suspect. they couldn’t even invent a perfect vaccine that gives 100% protection. actually, they conspired to serve us a lie. they spread the pandemic on purpose. possibly with chinese help. did i mention there’s going to be a war with china? i told you so
up! lock them up! lock (((them))) up!
isn’t it weird that these individuals are all still being mummy’d well into middle-age, too? a real psychological type. the constant need to be the moral exemplar, the brilliant one, the hero in the fray, the one setting the world to rights (and how much more fun if said world is against them or they are unrecognised for it: they're all woke libs humanities hipsters anyway, and i know mummy will have my back forever and ever).
i also love the fact that the vagaries and accidents of the pandemic made musk and the other billionaire class immensely wealthy, for practically doing nothing, or doing nothing different to pre-pandemic anyway. meanwhile the real heroes and people who delivered humanity from mass death and lockdowns without end are struggling to win pay rises in keeping with the rate of inflation. the real people who serve the common good and work in ‘public service’.
and the ‘future leaders of humanity’, elon and his elohim, what have they done in this time? with their new riches? they sunk their money into VR headsets for online corporate meetings and NFT auction spaces. they built cock-shaped rockets to take star trek tourists into low earth orbit. they killed 16,000 chimps trying to put Siri and Alexa chips in their brains.
and they basically squandered all of the hundreds of billions of extra dollars in net worth that the pandemic served them on a plate. they’re fuckin’ GENIUSES! we need to give these guys more free rein to pursue their ends. check this, they even have their own philosophies now, ‘effective altruism’ and ‘longtermism’ … dig it, man! eugenics is hip again! we’ve just replaced aryan master race bunkum with engineering master race!
