MR ROBOT – The Truth About Elliot’s Money

Mr-robot-season-1-review-spoilers-angela-moss-and-elliot-alderson

So Elliot Alderson cum MR ROBOT is like this freedom fighting ultra-hacktivist with high friends in low places. He lives in New York metro, and rents his own apartment (no parents to support him). He is able to work at high level corporate jobs like Allsafe and then ECorp, which is an indication of no criminal history. His insistence on seeing a therapist must be on his own cognizance, meaning that he is voluntarily seeing a private counselor, who is not even privvy to his drug activities and therefore not some kind of state-sponsored anti-drug addiction counselor. His income level and own housing situation indicates that he is beyond the bracket for Medicaid so we must infer that he is paying the steep fees for a New York woman therapist, on his own dime.

Oh yeah, and he has his own drug dealer. Not some douchebag street dealer he’s got to be worried about for discounts, but a hot and kind of crazy sexy girl dealer who takes molly with him and fucks his brains out back at his own New York apartment. His best friend is a smoking hot blonde who rises to fame being the corporate bicycle (which must be scrutinously picked out amongst the dross of the MR ROBOT series), who offers to “get high and watch your favorite movie” with him. She of course goes on to become his shadow government controlled handler during “Phase 2” of Dark Army’s massive attack. Elliot is uniquely in position at all times and points in the plot to have access to the necessary exploits and vulnerabilities to pursue MR ROBOT’s ulterior motive and mission. He is uniquely lucky and gifted.

Needless to say this is show business, and we don’t want to identify with some street bum or lonely loser, but my analysis is this, and the point that follows:

Elliot Alderson cum MR ROBOT is the wealthy elite. He lives a dream which the average cybersecurity student or professional could only dream. Even a clandestine officer with an intelligence service would fawn over the kinds of opportunities granted him during his tenure as an FBI/Dark Army/ECorp mole. And although while operating with F.Society he attacks the corporate power structure as some kind of socialist equalizing force to topple the financial records, we see no personal benefit to Elliot from this action as he is in fact a member of the underworked and overpaid 1%.

Do YOU Have What It Takes To Be #ANONYMOUS???

Facing Reality: Hacking Is Boring

That is to say, that hacking is the process of struggle leading unto the unlocking of a computer. In this case hacking can be a lengthy time consuming process of study and practice, applying techniques learned during study to unlock or effectively own the target machine or network. Scoring is fun, winning fuels the excitement; please remember that the fire in your belly for revolution must be tempered by hours and god forsaken untold aeons of study and practice before you can be considered a Hacktivist for #ANONYMOUS.

Unseen Dangers Of Anonymity

Snug at home on the old WiFi box makes Hacktivism a comfy alternative to actually doing anything. Hacktivism is not for the lazy, intellectually or phsycially, and demands a consistent focus and dedication to improvement of self and skillset. The Hacktivist is the lean restless type, ever consumed with a hunger for knowledge and a lust for power to balance the universe. While marching in protest, an #ANONYMOUS Hacktivist can easily become implicated into situations that are either compromising or downright dangerous.

I personally got carried away and left a great many number of stenciled Guy Fawkes tags on Washington DC sidewalks, a little job which landed me six months of Federal (unsupervised) probation. In a second protest also in The District, I was unprepared to witness the familiar masked faces of my #ANONYMOUS sisters and brothers being replaced by black-clad Soviet influenced disestablishmentarianists. The names I heard thrown around the mobs on the street that day were “The People / Black-Bloc / Antifa(scists),” and by the end of the day a Bank Of America, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Federal armored Suburban, and black limousine had all been destroyed by the thieving hands of miscreant anarchists toting bricks, bolt cutters, and lighter fluid. Our (#ANONYMOUS) tagging of the DC streets was tame in comparison to these savages with the radical liberal set, whose actions tend to abandon concepts liberal and rather embrace behaviours radical.

Understanding Time Travel { how to reach the future }

This is a no-brainer. You get in the DeLorean, you set the freaking knobs and dials and zoom! It’s 2015 and hoverboards are “in.” This is symbolic, of course. The aspect of becoming #ANONYMOUS Hacktivist occurs rather like some of the traditional professional tutelages such as law, or medicine, but with a special tradecraft that cannot be agreed upon by any central organization. This special tradecraft is handed down from senior Hacktivists to the younger generation of students; sort of like Doc handing Marty the flux capacitor and giving him his mission in the future. This cultivation of skill, sharp lookout for aspiring talent, and drive to recruit the unparalleled, are what keep the promulgation of the community alive and well, all parts functioning as a total cohesive unit and with talent on every tier.

As a final pearl, allow me to interject some teachings I received from a Chinese clandestine services officer whom was my cellmate during a time in my life while I was incarcerated, just before I moved to the nation’s capital:

“Feng Shui—means wind and water. America has Double Dragon power, that is why it became strong and wealthy. The Rocky mountains and Apalachians, these two mountain ranges are the fire and water dragon, America has strong Feng Shui. It is about balance, ‘Nu Balance.’ In a balanced strategy, retreat becomes just as effective as attack. Be more evil; seek more balance.”
