People with useful knowledge will never be dangerous until they realise how they're being conned and manipulated by economic nonsense.

Engineers naturally seem to gravitate rightwards, and they're easy meat for libertarian promises of rugged self-apotheosis, and for narratives that describe the economy as a simple set of interlocking parts with rigid laws that - unfortunately, but inevitably - destroy real human rights and social responsibilities.

Well, yes it could certainly happen, highly-skilled and no knowledge. Yes... I hope not.

A pleasure
