The bad guys are winning.
They may be sincere, committed people, who believe what they're doing is right, but they seem blind to the grievous consequences of their actions, and chase every mistake with another mistaken attempt to fix the previous one.
Common sense got sent on vacation.
They control most governments in the world. They control most corporations in the world. They are experts at how things that cripple, kill, and make miserable 95% of humanity can actually be a good thing.
They care nothing for how their actions of today will affect humanity (not to mention all other life on the planet) in the future.
What are we going to do?
