And God said, let there be light!

There is a permanent joke among physicists and physic students:

In the univ half of them had on T-shirts. It was mostly an in-joke, because few of us chemists, even less of the biologists and mathematics and obviously none of the literature major students had a clue what it is. It was extremely popular among female physics and chemistry students due to being effective pickup-repellent (sadly, guys under a level of education simply believed them to be non-figurative art).

The point is that despite being a good joke, knowing these equations makes no light, which amounts to the sad fact that so few people know them. On the other hand everyone knows Edison who did not invent the light bulb. He built the first practically usable light bulb based system (complete with power supply). Knowledge is of course important to create something, but is only important for the creator. The users can enjoy it without having the slightest clue what's going on inside the bulb, tube or led. For them, the technology itself is just nonsense they don't care and they are entitled to do so. Sure, by doing so they give up the hope of ever amounting to mankind any more than by repetitive work, but in the foreseeable future there will be such jobs (homemaker and prostitute included), so they have nothing to worry about.

Why am I telling this? Because a bunch of delusional redditors herald the fall of Goonswarm now that we know from defected liutenants of Evil Endie and tegiminis that they are totally corrupted. Except... we learned absolutely nothing new from them, besides the funny bit that the ISK budget of TMC is 1/10 - 1/5 as big as my MoA support. I'm not poor after all. Everything else was already common knowledge. Any Endie or Tegiminis revelation I've missed, please drop a comment and look up a link on my blog or on another blogs (except this one, that's a genuine surprise). The point is that we learned absolutely nothing new from Endie and Tegiminis. How can this non-news make difference? It won't. People believe it will, because - as good socials - they believe that the world is just, the people are good and now that there are testimonies, someone will do something.

Who? CCP?! Yes, since their community manager (who must handle such case) acts as a contributor on TMC and spreads toxic Goon propaganda, CCP will be eager to strike TMC down. Just like he did last time Goons broke the law (not the EULA, the law). The best we can expect from CCP is to force Goons to dance better.

But, but, but now the "big players" like PL and NC. will be mad enough to kill Goons. Totally. Just like last time. NC. might tries, but since they are shit, it won't make any difference. Oh, maybe PH and BNI and TEST will unite and crush them.

Sion summarized it well: "Mittani will still be here, with the thousands of swarm brethren and the black ships of the Imperial Armada at his back. Your impotent /r/eve badposts won't save you from the wrath of our guns any more this time around than it did any of the others."

Nobody will save you! Knowing all the truth about Goons won't hurt them any more than knowing the Maxwell equations makes light. Not CCP, not PL, not PH+BNI+TEST, not upvoting redditors and definitely not NC will act. If you ask your corp CEO to deploy, he'll decline with "something, content, something, fun, something, newbros". You are all alone and they are tens of thousands. According to the social voice in your head, you are a hopeless nobody against the unstoppable menace. According to the reality:

... you could be one of the guys who caused 6586B damage to the Evil Band of Bookstarters in 184326 solo kills in the last 12 months. That's what a single guy can do. Or you can quit your nothingdoing corp and join one in MoA, OOS, Project Mayhem in nullsec and various lowsec and WH groups regularly killing them. Or you can donate, like I did (over 1T now, since the start of the GRR project in 2014 Jan.)

Stop being the funny guy in the Maxwell equations T-shirt and be Edison! Go and bring the light to the darkness of Deklein! Don't worry, there will be no dragons, just medium shield booster carriers!

PS: I promised 2 guides a week, but this is very recent drama. I'll make 3 next week to make it up.
