I was wrong, it is possible to “fix the system from within.” So here’s the new plan:
Greta Thunberg, please join ExxonMobil.
Doctors, apply for jobs at Philip Morris.
Pacifists, enrol in the military.
Personally, I will immediately start a new job with six figure pay and stock options at Facebook to help fix privacy.
@aral What if all the dominance hierarchies got reversed overnight? Greta Thunberg hired as new CEO; old thoughtleaders get to do manual labour as penance for roasting the planet.
@aral Let's hope that those people still follow their current ideals when they got used to the money flow when they need to make bold business decisions where there's a chance of getting fired.
Well, the same guy who introduced me to "la quadrature du net" worked for Facebook for years . Not sure change happened. ( either in him or the company)
