I came across this well made scene and it just blew me away. It is from a TV series called Mr Robot which is about a young, anti-social computer programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer during the day, but at night he is a vigilante hacker.
What he has to say I think will resonate with everyone who listens, the Tagline of this Series just Nails it… Truly Our Democracy-is-hacked, Thanks to this scene, I’ve decided to start watching it!
Own the ones that own you. Take back society and spread the message with the f*** that you believe in.

Mr. Robot is a show following a young, anti-social computer programmer named Elliot who works as a cybersecurity engineer during the day and as a vigilante hacker at night.
Watch Elliot’s spot on response to being asked what about society disappoints him so much. I hope this scene can help inspire those who watch it to plug out of this superficial and matrix reconnect with what truly matters.
Interviewer: And we need to work on your anger issues, Elliot. You’re angry at everyone, at society.I know you have a lot to be angry about, but keeping it to yourself and staying quiet like you’re doing it’s not going to help you. There’s pain underneath. That’s where our work needs to go. What is it about society that disappoints you so much?
Elliott: Oh I don’t know … Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit? The world itself just one big hoax, spamming each other with our burning commentary bullshit, masquerading this insight; our social media faking this intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new, we all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy, but because we want to be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. F*ck society.
Interviewer: Elliot. Elliot, you’re not saying anything. What’s wrong?
