Perhaps you have not met a old thinking type shop owner (or a
producer) who think he is going to keep doing the same thing till
death becomes him/her.  And then there are usual marketting
adventurers who keep using that as their main interest is to stoke or
keep the fire from being extinguished...  which I am pointing again as
a perspective and there may be more...

I have not traversed the link you provided simply because it is not my
focus area, usually being considerate about other humans (or **human
machines**, please note!) gives us enough insight for our own
self-development and that is THE angle which probably "Why I am a
Pirate" kind of mentality propoganda may miss...

As usual that is the typical message given by "Viewer Discretion is
Advised" on the movie certifications.

There is also a case to keep reminding that **self**, that you are
still bound to follow the laws that were created by obtaining or by
abstinance of your covetted VOTE!
Nobody gives you any right to just start throwing tantrums just
because you have a valid and logical case for improvement, it still
needs to be brought up before the people in a manner that is provided
by the statutory framework drafted by your and everybody's ancestors
who designed current system of governance!
१. Stupid question always warrants a stupid answer!
२. Why question the answer, unless question itself is the answer ?
४. No question is ever stupid!
