It was funny, when we watched those nerds get bullied and stuffed into lockers in the movies, and we really didn’t know why, we just laughed. Maybe some people knew why. I didn’t, but I laughed just the same.
I suppose, the nerd didn’t have anything, and it may have looked like they never would, so it didn’t matter much.
But now they have something. Giganto corporations.
And now, its not so funny, because that nerd getting bullied by the government means we all have to live with spying.
And that nerd getting bullied by the upper social strata, means we all have to live with speech and thought control.
And I can’t help but feel now, though I didn’t then, that maybe they deserved it somehow in retrospect, because it’s obvious that they never learned how to deal with it.
That, or they actually secretly wanted those things the whole time, to make sure we were all spied on and have control exerted over what we were allowed to think and say.
In which case, then they definitely deserved it.
