What can I say, I liked this broadcast. For one thing, it dawned on me that Evil Corp is like the IMF. Moreover, Elliot continues to manifest multiple personalities. Finally, Angela has gone to work for Evil Corp. Perhaps, Angela is a mole or traitor, but you’ll have to watch this one to learn.
Looks like the police are after Elliot. Apparently, the therapist’s boyfriend, Armand, called them. He’s mad at Elliot for ruining his relationship and taking his dog. However, Elliot has been using proxies, so he’s untraceable. Good luck, cyber squad.
The response to the Chinese and japanese stock markets has provoked panic, setting off the downward trends of the European stock exchange. But is even more worrisome is the IMF has no leverage against these defaults. Already, 17 governments are said to be in large-scale crisis with some on the verge of collapse. Among the countries are Lithuania, Croatia, Ukraine, Romania, the Czeck Republic, and Estonia.
This episode sees the IMF in trouble. The bank of last resort must deal with too big to fail. However, it’s all Eastern European countries, so will the beast get out of this one?
Fsociety really f..ked over the IMF, the overlords of the world. By deleting debt of Evil Corp, the IMF’s neo-liberal agenda is derailed by some lefties. So much for peace.
Mr. Plouffe, have you seen the latest stock price? It’s hitting an all-time low of $18 and it’s still dropping. How are people reacting to this on the inside?. Almost $400 billion of wealth was lost today. That’s pretty astounding. Are you concerned?
Elliot has another blackout. This time he wakes up in Tyrells hearse. However, he doesn’t know how long he’s been in the SUV.
In a desperate attempt to find Tyrell, Elliot goes to Tyrell’s home and something strange happens. Here, Elliot runs into Joanna who asks who he is. At this point, Joanna smiles and starts talking to Elliot in German, as if he was Tyrell. Perhaps, Tyrell is another persona of Elliot, but my guess is Elliot has multiple personalities a.k.a demonically possessed.
The public should be worried. I mean, personally, my life is over. My pension, savings, everything has been in this company since I started here and that’s all gone now. Truth is, I’ve been with the engineering team all week and no one knows how to fix it. In fact, about the only thing they do know for certain is that this will be impossible to fix.
Perhaps, Angela joined Evil Corp for another reason. Perhaps, she’s the mole that will bring down the multinational corp, which killed her mother. We will see.
Strangely, a shoe salesman brings up Evil Corp when Angela goes into buy new Prada shoes. The salesman talks about well-documented evil things of Evil Corp’s doing. He warns Angela to not drink the koolaid. You know, the salesman sounds like he’s talking about the IMF, though.
Is any of it real? I mean, look at this. Look at it! A world built on fantasy. Synthetic emotions in the form of pills. Psychological warfare in the form of advertising. Mind-altering chemicals in the form of… food! Brainwashing seminars in the form of media. Controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding Dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit. A kingdom you’ve lived in for far too long. So don’t tell me about not being real. I’m no less real than the fucking beef patty in your Big Mac.
In sum, this installment was real. I mean we got to see a “too big to fail” fail. We got to see the IMF fail at peace. Nice job on the revolution, Fsociety. Now what are you going to do?
