For everything shall be measured and quantified and monetized. Every human endeavour and every human art and every tree and every rock. And anything that fails to produce a profit shall be discarded and the entiety of human existence shall enter into an agreement to do so or to die.
For this the age of tangibility in which the invisible loses meaning and that which records and documents, ascends.
Profit shall come first and profit shall come last and without profit, nothing shall exist. Your laws shall conform to the Laws of Profit and your social mores shall elevate Profitmakers above all.
To maintain profit, you shall eliminate the unprofitable and the marginal. You shall sell off public assets to maintain the Profitmakers. You shall terminate the sick the weak, the aged, the unprofitable.
And you shall fail to see what Profit shall make you;
“I mean—hell, I been surprised how sane you guys all are. As near as I can tell you’re not any crazier than the average asshole on the street.”
