NPCs? NOT SO SIMPLE…
by Ely Harman
It’s not as simple as “NPC bad!”
There are NPCs on our side too. Most conservatives are NPCs. The issue is most people lack the agency (awareness) for self-ownership, sovereignty, enfranchisement, or any number of related, partially overlapping, terms.
That doesn’t mean they can’t be good, functional, members of society. It just means they can’t be in charge of it.
Making a pretense of putting NPCs in charge (through universal franchise democracy or whatever) is just a sham way of putting whoever can pull their levers (media, academia, etc…) In charge.
And that’s simply not worth doing for a variety of complex reasons mostly having to do with issues of accountability or “skin in the game.”
