At the risk of sounding like an edgelord /k/ommando, I'm gonna blogpost just a little.
I have long believed in a comparison where a political system is a lot like a computer system. The ruling class are the sysadmins, and the normal citizens are the users. The big corporations and PACs are superusers or power users. The system has rules, and access permissions and protocols and all that jazz. The users rely on the system to get their day to day shit done, the sysadmins are in charge of maintaining the system and allocating resources between projects, and the power users game the system by exploiting the more obscure rules and protocols, or occasionally by outright hacking it.
Over time, the system slowly degrades. Bugs exist. Exploits are found and not patched. This is fun for a while, because users can get away with things that aren't supposed to be allowed, like ../ing up and over into other user's directories. But as the years go by, the bugs begin to go from amusing and relatively harmless to detrimental. And like the normal users of a computer system, the common citizen has no power to fix systemic problems. We're locked out of the server console, Regedit is blocked, etc. We have no access, and so rely on the sysadmins to hear our complaints and fix shit.
Well politically, we have reached a stage where the sysadmins have essentially fucked off and let the power users (the political parties, fags like Soros, etc) have the run of the place. The bugs are piling up (unfair prosecutions, war on drugs, unchecked immigration that benefits the power users, voter fraud, illegal wars, censorship and surveillance) and the sysadmins are all too busy enjoying pizza and hotdogs to fix anything. The power users don't want to fix anything because the collapse is benefiting them.
So we have two revolutions. We have hackers on the right, and we have hackers on the left, and both of them want to get access to the server console, kick out the old sysadmins, put the power users back in their place, and start "fixing" shit that they personally found to be problems. But these hackers hate each other, so they spend as much time trying to stop the other hacker from getting access as they do trying to get access themselves. Meanwhile the system continues to crumble. Now, the hackers on the left don't realize it, but they've been co-opted by employees from the power users. The PUs plan to have these hackers win, and then make sure that the "fixes" to the system benefit them even more. The left hackers either don't realize this or don't care, because they consider the right side hackers to be a bunch of shitlords. Meanwhile the right side hackers know that if the left side hackers win, the power users are just going to keep fucking everything up and nothing will really get fixed. They're working for the benefit of the normal users only.
