GOOD GUYS vs BAD GUYS IS COMPELLING GROUPTHINK, DESIGNED TO MISDIRECT PUBLIC ATTENTION, TO CONCEAL AMORAL PROFIT-FIRST EXPLOITATION BY ENTRENCHED POWER
Friend versus enemy, faithful versus corrupted, good versus evil: choose your favorite dichotomy, it doesn’t matter. Tribalism is compelling. It’s melodrama designed to misdirect public discourse away from scrutinizing the real business of exploitation. Governments, corporations, institutions, vested interests, city halls, these power dynamics use the same method. Democracy itself subordinates to this corrupt pantomime.
