A little satirical letter that gives me hope

Someone over at the Silver Circle Underground penned a humorous little piece recently as an open letter to the Federal Reserve's bureaucrats:

"If you’re reading this you were probably recently hired as part of the Federal Reserve’s new social media monitoring program. Chances are you’re a recent high school drop out, or part of some make-work federal job placement program. You probably don’t completely understand who it is that you’re working for, and what it is that you’re doing. So, I can’t really hold it against you. I’d like to welcome you to our little corner of the Internet, and offer you some sincere advice."

Throughout the letter, the author beautifully exposes just how dumb our government's bureaucracies are (correction: The Federal Reserve isn't part of the government... they're just friends with benefits). As I read it, I felt a glimmer of hope for our future on the basis of just how technologically illiterate our government is.

It's like when the Iranian government tried to shut down the Internet during the Green Revolution, but they were just too stupid to keep these 25-year-olds from getting pictures and video of their government's brutality on Twitter and YouTube for the world to see.
