    The defunct Consumerist used to run a poll. https://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2013/04/09/ea-voted-worst-company-in-america-again/?sh=2dc357397aeb . It was always strange how EA beat out the companies that I think do more harm to society for several years. For some reason it’s entertainment companies that draw a lot of vocal ire from consumers, despite financial institutions, pharma, telecoms, oil, factory farms, etc. doing more explicit and literal harm.

      Just repeating myself at this point, but to answer (again) your question…

      You should never fuck around with the plebs and their ‘bread and circuses’, especially if your government is not doing well.

        Your comment was vague. I know there’s these days, but I was talking about a theme I have been seeing since around 2010. In the past 23 years we’ve had differing levels of inflation and what not, but entertainment seems to still draw communal vocal ire in ways that seem disproportional to more impactful issues caused by corporations.

        but to answer (again) your question…

        what question did i ask?

          It’s not, if you understand the concept/story of “bread and circuses”.

          Both responses has a link to the wiki for it, that you can read up on, if you want further info on it.

          what question did i ask?

          I bolded it in both of my responses. It’s an implied, and not explicit, question.
