No. They're just gettin' wasted.
They're drunks. Drunk on power begetting drunk on drink and drunk on anything else. This is that phase of addiction where means and end for the vice become the same...and you're just gettin' wasted
. Not caring is a void, not caring is a numbness, not caring is the lack of effort. Not caring is NOT some conspiratorial superposition. Because somebody would have to care enough to make the effort. And that is at direct odds with the numbing effect of chronic drunkenness. Honestly...we're at the 5 married middle-class sales managers snorting angel dust off a dead hooker's stomach in a smoke-filled hotel suite while at a conference in Boca stage of not caring in governance. In fact, I would not be surprised at all if Mossad has surveillance tapes of exactly that happening on that Congressional trip to Jerusalem last year where all the stories emerged of reps getting drunk and rowdy and going pantsless into the Dead Sea. They don't fuckin' care that much. Public service is one big keg-and-coke party now. Nobody goes into it anymore except those lookin' for a fix.
Does that sound more like "evil" or "stupid" to you?
Either the overclass is part of the human race and subject to basic human nature, or they are supernatural beings born from the ether who can overpower humans' basic tendency to be colossal fuck-ups in order to execute such perfectly coordinated control. Isn't calling it perfect "evil" giving them exactly the status they seek as supreme beings smarter and more cunning than thou? Why would anyone willingly dignify their actions with such a compliment?
They're stupid, obnoxious, self-medicating fuck-ups. And thoroughly human in all their crapulence. The absence of caring, the absence of thought, and the lizard-brain compulsion to just get loaded
on _____ has wreaked far more destruction on the world throughout history than perfectly-laid plans ever did. This is the human race doing what it does best.
