Game Theory:
Untitled Goose Game takes place in a post-scarcity utopia, where all work is voluntary (nobody seems to care that much about the fact that their store has no customers, etc), and the only negative part of anyone's life is The Goose.
The reason people don't try that hard to stop The Goose is that it's one of the few truly unpredictable challenges left in their lives, and they enjoy that.

Isn't ICE a fucking monstrous org committing human rights violations daily? Yes.

This article (bbc.com/future/story/20190919-) on a previously unknown (and still not understood) maze-generating algorithm burred in an 1982 Atari game is a perfect example of the Academia vs Business #xkcd in action:

Here’s an outlandish script: 1) Facebook sees Warren as an existential threat, 2) Facebook decides to “go to the mat” to prevent her presidency, 3) Facebook knows how effective highly targeted lies are as a political tool. 4) This... twitter.com/juddlegum/status/1
