How Reddit almost CRASHED the Economy with a meme.


The GameStop short squeeze has probably been one of the biggest events in recent Internet history, completely disrupting the status quo of the financial world of billionaire hedge funds. What happened with WallStreetBets, Reddit, Robinhood and the Stock Market will probably linger for years to come as a turning point in internet culture. Today we recap the events and talk about the larger implications, although there are most certainly many ramifications of this story that have yet to surface.

    If a random person is given something, or even a rich person is given something of value, they want to keep it. This is so they can have personal wealth, and “make life easier.” Only the people who don’t want to be billionaires, and resist the urge to become a “better” person than before will be respected. I would actually help the economy from what is going on because I don’t like this pandemic, but I could help. Others benefit from it, which is a cheeky way of getting cash. I wouldn’t spend everything I just got from who knows where and had gotten me a fortune, I would’ve kept some. Why? Because I want to.

    Reddit honestly is probably one of the better social medias in my opinion. Redditors (especially meming or sometimes Gaming ones) seem to be more aware of situations than what other social media do as far as I'm concerned. And they sometimes aren't afraid to do something about it, such as they were able to fire a pedophile admin from Reddit's main staff, and ganged up on Amber Heard for Abusing Johny Depp and playing the victim (which also shows that Redditors know how to properly cancel someone, unlike Twitter) I just really like Reddit's community as a whole
