I understand how feedback loops work. But I think it's pretty silly to 
pretend that these are simple analog systems that operate based on 
straighforward rules, and not based on the scheming and manipulation of a 
conniving people.

You're trying to be dismissive, so I won't go in to examples of how these 
things are incredibly different because that's not really the issue here.

> You are not an engineer, John, are you?

That's an odd way to ask someone. Are you trying to suggest something?
