In 1937 Bertrand Russell wrote an essay entitled "The Superior Virtue of the Oppressed," in which he attacked the sentimental assumption of the title, pointing out that while the oppressed are no worse than we are, they are also no better, and given the opportunity, would act as badly we have. Since then, Robert Heinlein has dramatized the idea (the three-monkey parable in Stranger in a Strange Land), and the State of Israel has given us an object lesson. At a more trivial level, the whole Fake Geek Girl thing strikes me as a marvelous horrible example of learning the wrong lesson from oppression.

Game  
Here’s the thing about men like David Koch: Making money is basically just a video game to them. For the rest of us, making money is about being able to pay for things we need and want, such as rent and food and actual video games. But David Koch has made so much money that he literally cannot spend it all. There is nothing he would want to buy he cannot already afford. The only purpose at this point in making more money is for the pleasure of beating your high score. In other words, it really is just a very consuming video game. But unlike when you kill people in Call of Duty or crush candies in Candy Crush, the game David Koch is playing is very real. Millions of people will suffer and die because he wants to “win” his video game by manipulating the public to avoid taking action on global warming. That is evil and hateful and selfish on a level that puts the word “selfish” to shame

George R.R. Martin is not on Twitter or Facebook, is on one of the two good social networks (grrm), and is not inspired by Star Wars (good sign).

Thanx to andrewducker
