This argument seemingly presumes that individuals like that mod don't actually exist, and therefore it must be a psyop. I'm not sure if you just haven't met them in real life but they definitely exist and really are that cringe. These people are the origin points of the more ridiculous social reform ideas that get casually thrown around today.I still believe that the "r/antiwork mod interview m" is staged and a psyop. It just doesn't feel real considering the fact that there are people from higher up positions in that sub and yet the best person they can choose to represent themselves is an outright pathetic autistic loser.
>But r/antiwork is for normal people who just think that workers should be treated fairly!
Even if that's true for the majority of the people posting there, you think someone who has a wage cuck job or some shitty corpo "career" pushing paperwork and listening to a stupid boss all day is going to come home and spend their precious little free time being a janny and reading every comment that gets posted on a massive sub? Normal people want to do normal people things like watch TV, play vidya, drink with their friends, and eat dinner with their family, not go hunting for micro aggressions in rëddit comment sections and take down "problematic" posts. Even the "people from higher up positions" you mention are still implicated by this point.
>But they took a vote and decided it shouldn't happen!
Right, I forgot the part where mods have the ability to control literally anything other than which comments get deleted. The dirty little secret about democratic decision making is that unless the person/entity carrying out the will of the people has a monopoly on power, the vote is meaningless because people can just do whatever they want.
>Fox news picked a terrible example, it's unfair!
The fact remains that they didn't fabricate the story. That person really does exist, really is a mod, really does believe the stupid shit they said, and really is a member of that group. Are they a representative member? That's a different conversation, but the proportion of the antiwork movement that looks and acts like that person is not 0.
Real conspiracies do exist in this world, there is absolutely no doubt about that. But assuming that every single negative representation of something you believe in is some sort of psyop will get you nowhere because it's simply not true. Sadly, people who are that stupid and degenerate really do just exist and dwell among us.
Addendum: if you think everything is a psyop, then all you're doing is chasing your tail falling for red herrings that prevent you from finding the truth.
