This is an amazing story. Incredible how the manipulation is done openly with no attempt to hide it. Confidence before a fall?

I think it is indicative of the end of pretense. The gloves are coming off. The veil is being lifted.

All of which reminds me of a quote from Frank Zappa:
Quote:
The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre.

Is “Philip Cross” still active? Or will “he” have morphed into a different persona?
