I think one reason the GameStop thing is fun is because it is apocalyptic in the sense that it reveals the hypocrisy and opt-in delusions of capitalism. I like this take:
"And the Redditors said, “Who cares? I don’t care about your equations. I don’t care about your valuation models. I’m going to make the price go up because all it is to me is a number on the screen.” So they just stripped all the pretense out of Wall Street and used that to expose it and to screw it."
