Notice that none of these people is a scientist. This is why we end up in such a rotten state of affair. Nobody bothers to consult people who actually write computer programs.
Since the US elections are fast approaching, I thought I would remark very quickly on what I call the “Business Party” — a two-faction, corporate-run delusion of a choice where those in power are plutcrats who send orders to lawyers-turned-politicians. As long as this system remains in place, nothing will change. At least, nothing will change in people’s favour. █
NB – If Romney was fitted onto this image, he would be one among the individual people who shout “Change”. There are more than two options in the race, but corporate press merginalises those. Voting for the lesser evil (Obama in my humble assessment) still helps endorse a fake democracy and validate/solidify the role of the Business Party.
