Thus, the technocrat’s conscience is always in a precarious position, and if the state takes ruthless actions that overwhelm his ability to rationalize them he may become disaffected. This is always a danger in pyramid societies.
When disaffected technocrats form a critical mass they instigate coups and occasionally slave uprisings (the alt-right, for instance, is driven by disaffected technocrats and the disillusioned offspring of technocrats).
These then are the horns of the dilemma: a man who wishes to produce labor-saving devices must either 1) cooperate in the insane political programs of a shrinking managerial class of power-mad social engineers bent on acquiring all capital on earth, or 2) he must start a small business and be crushed within the scapegoating machine for having the temerity to prove a counterfactual which poked these overgrown Egoists right through their insulating delusions of grandeur.
They may have infinite money and the ability to turn off your ability to pay for food with a keystroke, but keep in mind that adding to a massive edifice of lies has exponentially increasing costs in man-hours. Therefore, if you understand where money comes from, you’ll see the real upper limit on evil is actually the morality of the average person they want to control (as measured in how much money it takes to produce marginal inversions in their revealed preferences).
This is the real reason straight white Christian men are considered the Great Satan: they’re just too damn expensive to reeducate. It’s not that they can’t be reeducated–everyone has breaking points–it’s just that somebody’s spreadsheet somewhere said that the autistic psychoticism of white men means it costs $1 million per just to get them to shut up about Ancap or Propertarianism or whatever the fuck reason they give for resisting systemic demoralization.
