Ok, they may be going up against an oppressive system, but this egocentric mode of life could very well create a new class of oppressors, people who view themselves as gods of cyberspace or at the very least 'psycho-historians as in Asimov's Foundation Series.   A self important cyber-elite, much like the Leninist, Stalinist and Maoist vanguards.  Remember even the promoters of "Big Science" in the 50s and 60s.Even the Tea Party sees themselves as fighting against a mighty oppressor!!!  This is very chilling.   It could even spawn a counter movement "Techno-Luddites" if you will.

Good point, Tome.

They're related in name only, so it helps us understand where the *punk branding came from.

This was interesting to me in that it drove home to me what I think is a falsehood claim that either Steampunk or Dieselpunk are derivatives or spin-offs of Cyberpunk. Each of the genre-punks stand alone. Cyberpunk just happened to be historically the first to get wide scale recognition.
