Mr. Robot is an American drama–thriller television series created by Sam Esmail.
Elliot Alderson is a cybersecurity engineer and hacker who suffers from social anxiety disorder and clinical depression. Alderson is recruited by an insurrectionary anarchist known as “Mr. Robot” to join a group of hacktivists. The group aims to cancel all debts by attacking the large corporation E Corp.
When Elliot was asked what disappoints him so much about our society he perfectly described society’s dark side.
After this speech I got caught to watch Mr. Robot like a fish in a net!
Oh I don’t know.
Is it that we collectively thought that Steve jobs was a great man even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels that all of our heroes are counterfeit. The world itself is just one big hoax. Spamming each other with our burning commentary bulls*it, masquerading as insight. Our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this; not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new, we all know why we do this. Not because Hunger Games books makes us happy, but because we want to sedated, because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards….. F*ck Society!”
