Merit-Credit Competition

I will scratch your …

I mean your back

You scratch my …

… I mean my back

 

I will give you a Like

You give me a Like

I will give you a Thumbs Up

You give me a Thumbs Up

 

Online, offline, be it wherever

These are the rules of the game

 

I am OK, you’re OK; both healthy

And all is well with the world

Even though losers go on and on

About the problems in the world

 

We play by the rules, and so

 

My merit will go up

My credit will go up

Your credit will go up

Your merit will go up

 

Together, both of us

Will win the competition

We will earn the position

That we don’t deserve

 

I mean, yes we actually do

Deserve on our very own

 

Then we will go pay our respects

To the billionaire, God bless him

For giving us all his all blessings

May he prosper forever and ever

 

And may he bless us in the world for

Doing well in all adult competitions

 

All Hail the Gods of Meritocracy!

 

Let’s launch a #hashtag as an offering

In his honour, so he gets eternal glory

We all get our prasad and our lollipops

 

After the fall of the causality frontier

Just as punishment determines crime

Our success also determines our merit

 

That is why we have the word loser

Punishment Determines Crime

Crime and punishment

Are highly correlated

 

Humanity doesn’t need to live

In the chains of causality

The final frontier for humanity

 

Causality requires us to understand

The whole continuous bi-directional

Network of effects and their causes

 

Therefore,

 

To free humanity from the chains

Of complicated tangled causality

Punishment determines the crime

 

What was the crime

Based on which

And how much

Was the punishment

 

Therefore,

 

In order to reduce crimes, you can

Catch someone: anyone, anywhere

And make sure to punish them well

This can be done: is easily achievable

With near total, complete certainty

 

Therefore,

 

If you are someone being punished

You must have committed a crime

 

Even if you don’t remember it

Even if you think you know

That you haven’t committed it

 

You surely must have committed it

Why would you be punished

If you hadn’t committed the crime?

 

It is not logical in a world that has been

Liberated from the clutches of causality

 

Therefore, for example

 

All military aged males over there

Wasted in our Double Tap strikes

Are, by definition, *bleep, bleep*
