And also, deferred collective responsibility is deeply ingrained in their workplace environments and culture. They think, if not me someone else. They think they're just doing what there is to do, what they think is interesting, and it's up to society to decide what's what. That's what they tell themselves. Unlike the doctor or lawyer, who's direct and in the trenches, their work has more degrees of separation.

This is pretty much how any society works. For example the Nazis. They found you couldn't just have one man shooting people all day. Ordinary soldiers broke down eventually, morale plummeted even when you plucked out the sociopaths and sadists, and it was a waste of ammunition. So they moved more primarily to the work camps and killed them in the gas chambers, etc. It's all about degrees of separation, shared responsibility, and temporal separation.

Unlike humanists, they don't need to convince anyone that what they are doing is useful. Humanist looks with bitter jealousy at engineer with stable career, starts fearmongering about subject she has no understanding about, copypastes some ethics dilemma and then markets herself as expert in "engineering ethics", proceeding with hate campaigns against people who are not willing to hire her for good wage to advice them. So, engineers by themselves never have morals, because passive-aggressive humanist who would be otherwise doomed to low salary and uncertain employment told you so to prop up her own career.

Engineers typically work for for mega international firms and thus are no better than cogs in a machine. Despite anything they tell you, the bottom line is that all they are paid to care about is making money. Combine that with the fact that engineers are usually spending dumber peoples money (public money) and accountability is a fucking joke in society as general. Doesn't help that board certification of engineers is sadly failing and degrees are getting easier and easier to get. It's compounded worse by the fact that and engineering degree is the considered the benchmark for being employable and thus every dumbfuck who just wants to wagecuck in a cube for enough money to survive off goes for an engineeing degree.

Engineer here, by optimizing our munitions we can make it so that they severely brain damage rather than completely kill people. This means the enemy will spend more resources keeping these people alive. If we can do this well enough, infantry no longer make economic sense in warfare. This has been enabled by the medfags, who gave us the exact damage threshold for death and severe brain damage(in a handy dandy excel spreadsheet too!).

>> No.10164789

I had a realization a few weeks ago while at a museum (depicting and exhibit on the history of labour) of all places that it's my job as a software engineer to put people out of work. The more people I can put out of work via a program the better software engineer I am. It bothers me. I'm a software engineer for fucks sake. I'm not supposed to care about morals. Leave that shit to the philosophers. I want to help the world but in order to help the new world I must destroy the old. It fucking sucks.

These people...sure some of them hate their jobs, but there many others that are proud of the dedication to their job. They've been working some of these jobs their entire lives just for some wise ass like me to tell them one day that their job is being automated. Imagine that for a sec. You work your entire fricken life for a cause, making sure that you do your damnedest to put out your best effort possible for 40+ FUCKING YEARS just to have someone tell you that you are unnecessary. Not only that, but you then realize that you have been unnecessary for your entire life, and you have wasted your life accomplishing nothing. That is my job. To inflict this upon people.
