Maybe the cheating has been going on all along.
Are we as a group of Patrick readers participants in a cohort effect: becoming increasingly self-aware of our environment?
Sometimes, I think I am trying to gain knowledge to make informed decisions, but it seems the cheaters are always a few steps ahead.
I can't do anything about the cheating, and I haven't found a way to move on -- that's why we are all here.
This is a very important topic that makes me think of the red/blue pill moment in "The Matrix."
