Explanation[edit]

This comic takes a strip from 1980 and swaps its dialogue with one from 2009 to point how similar they are.

The title, aside from being a TV Tropes page, is a recurring phrase in the dystopian tabletop game Paranoia, referring to the absolute rule of the land's ruler, "The Computer".

The author writes:[edit]

Original strips: 1980-04-11, 2009-03-05.
