You don’t honestly expect the empire – errr, industry – to sit quietly by while we take shots at the subterfuge they build around the product, do? All through life we are told that we should question the status quo. Accept nothing at face value. Ask the hard questions. Never has this been more relevant than in this age of billionaire orange men running superpowers.
The flipside is, though, that the more you question, the more you dissent. And the more you dissent, the more it becomes an us versus them game. They collect paycheques for doing (and saying) what they do (and say). We’re just ‘intemperate and ill-informed’ and driven by ‘hotheaded ignorance’. Sometimes even ‘‘expert’ bloggers or social media superheroes’. Notice ‘expert’ was already cheekily given quotation marks by the condescending tool who said it.
Anyway…unless they result to the name-calling crap (as above and below), let’s keep it above the board. While disingenuous, to say the least, at the end of the day they are real people with real families and real feelings. (Though there’s one character I’m not so sure about) Don’t give up the fight, but do it at a level that continues to highlight the deception and let time validate the right.
This goes for the big guys at the top, but also applies all the way down to the small, small, small so-called ‘Intelligent’ ones who can’t even handle a dissenting opinion without reaching for the ‘block’ button on their Twitter accounts.
Because lord knows we’d hate to be fall in with the ‘many self-promoting, opinionated and vocal experts; (with) sadly, so little expertise.’
