Not sure why this made me laugh but it did
It’s hard to explain to regular people how much technology barely works, how much the infrastructure of our lives is held together by the IT equivalent of baling wire.
Computers, and computing, are broken.
It used to be that the powers that be kept the common man from learning how to read, thus indirectly barring them from achieving any higher power. This is nothing different other than being adapted to the current human environment.
Sadly, sometimes I wish for less intelligence and knowledge which would in turn alleviate some fears. Sigh.
