Everyone on this thread and elsewhere can relax (to an extent) because there is no small group in control of the system. "The system" has become so complicated that it is its own entity and it no longer needs a small group of people to control it. Everyone is servant to it. I say "servant" rather than "victim" because a parasite such as this does not want to kill off its host.
Subjectively true, yet there are degrees of power which individuals and groups have within ~the system~. It is prudent to be mindful of potential abuses of the system.
