It’s not that you don’t understand people. You
just understand them in a way that freaks them
out. Through the lens of technology, you know
how to take people out with remote weapons
in the most efficient way possible. The security
slip-ups of bad passwords and ill-advised cloud
storage are second nature to you. Empathy
is hard for you, because all you see are the
horrific secrets that others try and protect, and
the violence they commit to keep them buried.
People like you are essential to a corp’s ability to
function because you can engineer anything they
need. Now you’re going to engineer the ways to
take them down.
Who still doesn’t trust your designs?
Who doesn’t know you used to monitor their family for a Corporation?
Whose dark secret did you erase, and did you keep a backup?
