1. Stay in school, study, and learn all you can.

2. Work your way into a position of power. Play the role. Be the good student, the diligent worker, the respectful employee. Gain the trust of your superiors.

3. When you have the faith of your superiors, you will be trusted with greater and greater responsibilities. Eventually one will come along which is vital the Establishment, perhaps even a government job if you happen to be brilliant enough.

4. When the critical moment comes, strike your first and final blow, and do it well. They'll never see it coming, and you can do some serious damage to the system.

Note: This is basically social suicide bombing, so don't even try it if you actually plan on getting another real career afterwards. Depending on how high up you get, and what actions you take to play your hand, you could end up getting fired, thrown in jail, or worse.

This should be seen as a lifelong project, one that must be given the utmost care. You should never breathe a word of your true intentions to anyone, not even those you love and trust the most. The execution must be perfect, the timing flawless.

Also realize that dealing a blow is metaphorical for ruining a business, government, etc. Violence is not an option, nor is it the answer. We are currently under the control of a dominator culture. Achieving our objectives through violence will only serve to strengthen and continue this legacy of hate, fear, and control. Peace is our top priority.

Or in simple terms you basically retire at the most bizare time. This approch to the "final blow" is ecpecially good if you are the head IT guy or only IT person.

This is also a good way to get a few extra retirement bucks from the compnay.

Why would you dedicate your entire life to destroying a system that someone else built? There are plenty of ways to work outside of the system if you don't like it.

It is much easier to destroy than to create. If you don't like the system change it. A petty act of sabotage is the cowards way out.

I think it'd be worth it, just for entertainment value. It'd be annoying to dedicate your life to it and then for your attempt to fail, though.

I wouldn't mind screwing over a system which has screwed me over many times. But if it is a system that you have put time and dedication in it even if your first intention was to screw the company over then I wouldn't do it. Because you've probally come to like the job because you've stayed at it so long in the first place so why screw it over.

It's a perspective, not to be taken too literally.
