    Lethal Weapon does have the Christmas tree lot fight.

    That's the thing, "disruption" is an ideology about rapid change with little preparation. That's the explicit motto, right--move fast and break stuff.

    I agree that institutions should be audited and constantly pushed to reform and improve, but that's a process that demands rigour, research, expertise, familiarity, cost/benefit analysis, etc. It's a lengthy, neverending process, and trying to shortcut it has nasty long-term consequences

    The problem is that institutions necessarily have to exist in an environment where they're competing with these forces of rapid change regardless. I think a major issue with our existing apparatus for putting our foot on the breaks is that it just can't keep up the pace and it's failing us for this reason. The pace has changed, we need people with more knowledge of these fields regulating faster.

    I think there's something to be said for the need for more drastic interventions. Sometimes institutions hit dead ends and need to be ripped up and re-planted. Revolutions can become necessary, particularly when we're stuck in these configurations where what ought to be a normalizing process is shredding us in half. Acknowledging that there is significant cost involved in this is vital, but iterating isn't always an option.

    Yeah it takes place during christmas. I say Nice guys as a joke because like only the literal last part of the movie is during christmas time for all of twenty seconds.

    I'm starting a ironic vaporwave off-shoot version of celebrating Christmas.

    It's all very self-aware and navel-gazy and just utterly joyless but it is very aesthetic.
