Mr. Robot returns

❝ “They’re having their way with us—they packaged our fight into product, turned our descent into intellectual property, televised a revolution with commercial breaks, refurbished the facts than upped the price, lobotomized us into their VR horror show,” Elliot opines in one of his signature monologue while images of Antifa and Nazis, climate change and Brexit montage-on by.

❝ What if instead of fighting back we cave, give away our privacy for security, exchange dignity for safety, trade in revolution for oppression? What if we choose weakness over strength?” he continues, his dialogue now spliced with audio of Donald Trump uttering “these are not the people that made our country great, these are people destroying our country” during some campaign event.

❝ This is what they wanted all along: for us to buy in on our worst selves, and I just made it easier for them. I didn’t start a revolution, I just made us docile enough for the slaughtering.”

Nice to have an old friend back. To share the darkness.

Most of the review is stable and printable and includes beaucoup spoilers if you waited like me for your streaming service to offer up the premiere On Demand. But, wander down to the end of the article for other interesting stuff.
