Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit. The world itself’s just one big hoax. Spamming each other with our running commentary of bull**** masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new, we all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy but because we wanna be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. F*** society.
I’ve always said that power is more important than money. But when it comes to elections, money gives power… well, a run for its money.
The truth isn’t this happened or that happened. The truth to me is about doing good. And the only way to put yourself in a position to do good is by getting elected. That’s the greater truth.
Make it easier for those whose vote you can count on. Make it harder for those you can’t. That’s how you rig an election without leaving a lick of evidence.
