Unattainable

"Google Is Not What It Seems" by Julian Assange (read the whole thing; there are lots of specific examples):
"Nobody wants to acknowledge that Google has grown big and bad. But it has."
"The Unattainable Illusion of Meritocracy" by Yves Smith.  We've build a society which worships 'merit', and justifies all its abuses on 'merit', but which is completely and systematically and intentionally incapable of judging merit.

Tweet (Sophia Banks):
"Canada. You want to prevent things like the Ottawa shooting? Advocate for better drug rehab programs + mental health services."
