If you want to know tje movie's premise is people with did have super powers.

It could habe been a moving metaphore about how the broken are stronger than steel.

But they fucked it up right at the beginning. And took their metaphor way too literally

slavery as it applies to modern labor 

Modern society relies on the subjugation of the lower classes within jobs that don't meet basic resource needs, which traps those people within jobs which they can't afford to do without, and which suck away all of their energy making it impossible to put personal effort towards anything other than basic subsistence.

This is what people mean by "wage slavery." We, as in people who are subjected to and exploited by this system, have little to no choice in how our energy is spent, and resources to improve our situations are often locked behind bureaucratic red tape, whose purpose is to ensure it remains difficult for basic needs to be met.

The continued existence of this system is vital to ensuring that those in power remain in power. Customer service jobs, such as retail and fast food, are among the biggest perpetrators of this system.

Rich people need people to perform labor for them. Make food, sell clothes, handle groceries. It is understood that if these workers made enough money to do more than sustain themselves, then they could improve themselves into a situation in which they no longer need to work in such demeaning subservient jobs.

However, this work is vital to the function of society. Not everyone can make food, not everyone can handle the logistics of storing groceries.

Here's an interesting post I found about this classism within a family on reddit:

Upper class people consider themselves above the labor of society. Even people who work in skilled trades and who are intelligent and competent at what they do are considered "lower class"

We, as people of the lower classes, need to find ways to free ourselves from the endless pointless labor of subservience to upper classes; we must commit our energy and labor towards ourselves, and improving our own situations. As long as we are only able to commit energy to the benefit of bosses and customers, we cannot commit energy to improving ourselves and our own situation.

The first step towards achieving that is recognizing that we need help; we can't get through this alone. Reach out to like-minded people and discuss what resources it is possible to share mutually.

Abolish the taboo of talking about money. Talk about how much money you make in your job. Talk about how much money you pay in rent. Talk about how much money you spend on food. Talk about where your food comes from. Talk about the privileges and benefits you experience through your lived experience.

It is taboo to talk about money because our society relies on shame of being poor to keep us divided. Seeing someone else makes more or less money than you doesn't make them a better or worse person. It is simply a descriptor of the resources available to them, and not an indication of their personal value. Unless, of course, they're stinking rich and hoard enough money to feed nations, in which case, those people should die.

Normalize being open about your needs, and share with other people the things that are important to you.

I'll start.

I make $600 a week on unemployment. The house I live in costs $1500 a month, and the cost of that is shared between me, my partner, and the other two people who live with us.

Our household spends around $1000 per month on food, and around $300 per month eating out.

Why do all movies that portray mental illness present those aflicted as dangerous outsiders and thosecstudying them as shunned by the scientfic community?

Y'all can just skip the 2016 M.Night Shamalam movie "Split" it's complete trash.

why use silly words like "extract" or "decompress" when you can simply add un-!
zip, unzip
mkinitramfs, unmkinitramfs
icode, unicode

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.
