A Frankenstein Moment of Clarity
Here, amidst all of the engineered packaging, and more clever than the rest of us hubris, the established powers that be recognize a monster of their own making. It would be wonderfully ironic were it not so damned depressing.
And the truly amazing thing about the "more clever than the rest of us" class is that very few, if any, will take this as an opportunity to consider that maybe... Just maybe what they've been on about for the last hundred years or so is playing with electric fire of the worst kind; trying to maintain their hubris, as well as their power, in the face of a ravaging monster that is not merely one person, but an entire way of doing things that values only money and profit.
That most of them won't, however, is a sure sign of the kind of insanity another, quite brilliant German described: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different response.
