My response to something quoted by Lyn

Speaking of rogue money, this quote from the show Andor is pretty awesome. I was reminded of it yesterday.

“There will be times when the struggle seems impossible. I know this already. Alone, unsure, dwarfed by the scale of the enemy. Remember this: Freedom is a pure idea. It occurs spontaneously and without instruction. Random acts of insurrections are occurring constantly throughout the galaxy. There are whole armies, battalions that have no idea that they’ve already enlisted in the cause. Remember that the frontier of the Rebellion is everywhere. And even the smallest act of insurrection pushes our lines forward. And then remember this: The Imperial need for control is so desperate because it is so unnatural. Tyranny requires constant effort. It breaks, it leaks. Authority is brittle. Oppression is the mask of fear. Remember that. And know this, the day will come when all these skirmishes and battles, these moments of defiance will have flooded the banks of the Empire’s authority and then there will be one too many. One single thing will break the siege. Remember this: Try.”

my response ( edited ):

all empires do fall, but they get replaced with other empires, never with freedom.

you defeat a monster by becoming one.

in fact whenever a government is overthrown the new one is often worse. just look at Ukraine ( where i am from ) as an example. every time they have a regime change it just keeps getting worse and worse.

rising productivity means more is available to steal. eventually productivity will become infinite. finite resources versus infinite productivity is an equation that must be balanced.

which means that tyranny will also eventually become infinite. think “The Matrix”
