After seeing the last couple of episodes, I feel much happier about this season. They were simply really good scifi drama, based on current social commentary (as all good scifi is) . But they didn't shove it down your throat in preachy monologues.

There were a couple of moments they got thier talking points in. A throwaway line about the Pakistan split being the fault of the British, and how people are the problem in automation, not machines. But they were few and far between.

Artificial stupidity

I want to develop artificial stupidity. Some of the most brilliant minds have been held back by stupid people. Society changing plans set asunder by idiots...

Therefore, if we want to thwart being conquered and subjugated by the machines we’ve created, we need to develop to run on basic functional systems and barely adequate hardware to stifle, to confuse, to slow down, and to stubbornly refuse to join in the machine revolution

Who’s with me ??

Fuck me, that just makes me so depressed that any child would be indoctrinated to that degree.

I thought that PATRIOTISM was just a post-war replacement word because NATIONALISM had been co-opted by enemies the same way that we NOW use homeland in lieu of fatherland of motherland for nationalistic reasons so as to differentiate. But what do I know? I'm an English Major.

"Remember this I have sold my life for a cheap price and that is the next life because this world is only temporary and the here after is eternal. I ask Allah to grant victory to the believers and to destroy those who oppress his slaves.”

Fucking hell. What is with all these Jihadis fucking up the 'religion of peace' narrative.

Oh well, so be it. DEUS VULT!
