Hackers Don't Matter

The PC was presented as a "revolution'' that would empower individuals, in the workplace as well as in society. It was supposed to bring about greater social equality and keep power under scrutiny. Hackers, and their values of technical prowess, disdain for authority and individual freedom were hailed as the heroes of this coming revolution. Thirty years down the line, we find ourselves in Surveillance Capitalism, a literal dystopia where our every move, online or offline, is tracked, catalogued, stored forever and sold at auction across the world. Instead, those who should have brought about a revolution have either become the ruling elite in the GAFAM occult Leninist experiment, or its useful idiots. It appears that ethics was never an inherent hacker value, rather a personal value of some hackers. If we value social good at all, we must recognise that techical prowess without ethics is dangerous, and that being a hacker per se does not matter.
