Yup. That’s why I don’t ever worry about BIG BUSINESS/GOVT/[WHATEVER] conspiracies.

I know the inefficiency and bumbling, grandstanding and panic of human systems and where the flaws lie. Replacing it all with scientists won’t help because they jockey for their equivalents of political position like aybody else does, and replacing with computers just puts it at the whim of whoever is funding the paychecks of the programmers doing the programming to serve their ends to some degree in theory, but meanwhile the same bumbling process will prevail, resulting in systems that require just as much maintenance and human intervention as ever and in the end, will likely entirely fail to serve anybody’s whim at all.

I kind of love that aspect of humanity. That anything gets accomplished AT ALL is absolutely amazing to me.

Plus, technicians, engineers and programmers will _always_ have work. The more things we make, the more stuff there is that breaks.
