The Similarities Between Corporate Drones and Biological Viruses

I have previously written about how present-day corporate drones are rather similar to those employed by the Third Reich. Let us take that idea one step forward and ask ourselves..

What class of biological organisms do corporate drones most resemble?

Some of you might say that corporate drones resemble classical multi- or uni- cellular parasites, that is not quite correct. Every species of parasitic worms, flukes and protozoas evolved from organisms that were not parasitic and have many cousin species that are either free-living, commensal or symbiotic. They themselves got into the ‘parasite’ lifestyle because a series of events based in probability (mutations) and chance (opportunity). Their parasitism is therefore a side-effect of evolution and not the defining characteristic of their biological potential. Even every species of pathogenic bacteria have dozens if not hundreds of harmless cousin species who mind their own business.

One class of organisms, however, came into being (and have remained) obligate parasites. Viruses, of all types, are incapable of reproducing without misusing the biochemical machinery of a host cell- be it a bacteria or a human.

The obligatory parasitic nature of viruses is also the defining characteristic of their biological and evolutionary potential.

While all biological organisms want to reproduce themselves, viruses alone exist for the sole purpose of reproduction. Viruses cannot be anything other than or beyond viruses. They are fundamentally incapable of a free- living, commensal or symbiotic existence. Viruses cannot evolve into anything beyond another strain or species of viruses, unlike cell-based organisms which can and do evolve into something beyond their current selves.

Consequently viruses have no true utility to the rest of biological life on earth. Can you think of a single cellular species that would miss their existence? Would the process of biological evolution on earth be crippled if every single virus on earth just disappeared? Viruses exist because they can, not because they must or should. Do humans miss the disappearance of the smallpox virus or the polio virus? Do cattle miss the rinderpest virus?

Unlike all other type of biological lifeforms, the continued existence of all viral types and species is a net negative.

Now let us turn our attention to corporate drones. What are their defining features? How are they different and distinct from other human beings? Are corporate drones really human beings?

The most obvious and distinguishing feature of corporate drones is their willingness and efficiency in carrying out tasks without regard to the outcome or utility. They either lack the ability to comprehend the consequences of their actions or seem to willfully ignore them. The sole purpose of their existence seems to be having kids with a similar mentality. They do not have aspirations beyond survival and promotion in the group they supposedly ‘belong’ to. Nor do they exhibit the type of spontaneous intellectual curiosity and imagination characteristic of even the most ‘primitive’ human beings.

Though similar to sociopaths in many respects, they lack the superficial charm, exciting lives and intellectual abilities that characterize sociopaths – especially the successful ones. Corporate drones are blander than bland. Their personal lives are so predictable and mundane that calling them ‘beige’ is an insult to that color. They are almost never involved in making, building or creating anything that is necessary, useful or innovative. They are also never involved in any innovative activity- be it social, cultural or intellectual. They even lack the position and guile to steal from others like the rich.

Their lack of intelligence, talent, creativity and lack of human decency does not however translate into unemployment. Indeed, the converse is true as they are favored henchmen for high-flying sociopaths. It would not be an exaggeration to say that almost every single person in middle to upper management, administration, human resources, accounting etc in private corporations or public organisations is a corporate drone. So are lawyers, law enforcement and a significant number of people in the educational and medical professions. They are the people who make it possible for the rich and powerful to be overtly sociopathic and screw over the rest of society. They man (and increasingly woman) the systems that make oppressive, dystopic and plain fucked-up societies possible. Hitler, Stalin or Mao would have been nothing without these creatures, nor would your favorite ‘self-made’ and ‘honest’ billionaire be what they are without them.

It is important to realize that their continued existence is not beneficial to anybody except their own viral selves. Corporate drones also lack the ability to change significantly or evolve beyond their pathetic, bland and toxic selves. They only persist because their kids reach reproductive age and have more kids- thereby perpetuating these human equivalents of biological viruses. But just like viruses, they can be made extinct.

What do you think? Comments?

    “They only persist because their kids reach reproductive age and have more kids- thereby perpetuating these human equivalents of biological viruses.”

    well, I guess I’m at a disadvantage here as a MGTOW and so are you as a connoisseur of prostitutes (unless you pay extra to go raw and she doesn’t get baby diablo aborted.)

    The survival of their progeny is not an insurmountable or unsolvable problem.

    “They are the people who make it possible for the rich and powerful to be overtly sociopathic and screw over the rest of society.”

    Howard Zinn had a word for that, I’m not sure if it was guardian class, but yes, they are the black shirts, the stormtroopers so to speak….

    But their effectiveness would be considerably reduced if their kids never lived long enough to reproduce..

      So did Hannah Arendt and Ward Churchill. I note that it was avoided here.

    it’s funny how GL Pigster and all the alter-righties defend a system where they are lower-middle class at best….

    it’s like an incel defending female privilege in dating and relationships…

    They are the useful idiots who need to disappear.. forever.

    Hallelujah! I thought I was alone with my view of hirelings (drones). Profound comparison. I would only add that the government variety is far more lethal, not subject to dismissal as with private employment, its survival mandated by law (rich men in charge). Free passes for all whistle blowers, public and private.

    People who just do what they are told haven’t generally been seen as a social problem. But, that’s almost certainly because the people who decide what is and isn’t a social problem are generally those who tell people what to do.

    Even the nuremberg verdict stopped short of endorsing personal responsibility for actions taken when told to – the motherly admonishment “would you do stupid thing x if he told you to?” springs to mind.

    Hopefully interesting question time- if these people didn’t exist, would there be a way for a society to get rid of them or their superiors?

    Love your articles, btw. Thank you for your efforts.

    While I understand your mentioning of viruses if just a springboard for discussing your hatred of whoever you want to kill this week, I have to disagree with your characterisation of nonviral organisms as non-parasitic. All organisms are parasitic as they consume other living creatures.

    A virus will never be anything beyond a virus. Other types of organisms can evolve into something far beyond their starting points.

    Does virology pique your curiosity, or do you simply need a convenient negative label? There is more to viruses that meets the eye. Have you heard of horizontal gene transfer? Some instances of it are facilitated by viruses. Consequently, no species would be the same as it is without viruses (mammals use a protein derivative of some retrovirus to ensure that placenta is not targeted by mother’s immune system, as an example). There is also a controversial recent idea that every cell nucleus is a direct descendat of some ancient huge virus (viral eukaryogenesis hypothesis). Of course, it’s debatable if you see that as positive or not.
