I think one aspect of Mr Robot that isn't talked about nearly enough is the subject of waning US hegemony and the dollar's collapse as the world's reserve currency. In the backdrop of the show, fsociety's 5/9 hack wipes out all debt records held by E Corp, and causes a global recession that accelerates the world's adoption of their digital currency, Ecoin. There's a proposed accord to cement this decision, with China's signature being the deciding factor. The main villain of the series is a time-obsessed, trans woman hacker who moonlights as China's Minister of State Security, and is the reason why E Corp's CEO has his job in the first place. She is also the head of Deus Group (a la Bilderberg) who is heavily investing in a secret project that has something to do with time. It is unclear why this project is so important to her, but it is later revealed in a flashback that she is traumatized by the suicide of a lover after witnessing her forced marriage. For some reason said project requires access to resources found only in the Congo, which somehow isn't possible without China's complete annexation of the region. The agreement goes through: nations adopt Ecoin as the world's reserve currency at the expense of Chinese annexation of the Congo.
This is never brought up again except to pigeonhole fsociety into a compromising position for seeking to undo their 5/9 hack. By Season 3, civil unrest is clearly broiling in America: E Corp's headquarters gets trashed by protestors and 71 of their datacenters get bombed by Chinese agents. I'm mentioning all of this because the very idea of revolution in America coming from "outside agitators" seems especially relevant now, but it's presented so uncritically here it begs the question as to what Sam Esmail was thinking. For him, "revolution" can only come in the form of some hyper-compartmentalized, neo-blanquist group. This sentiment remains unchanged into Season 4, where the remaining members of fsociety rob Deus Group of their Ecoin and proceed to anonymously, evenly redistribute all of their accumulated wealth into the digital wallets of the masses. Indeed, "the greatest redistribution of wealth in history" is literally depicted as a walk in the park. Worse yet, the main character's actions are explained away as being a product of his dissociative identity disorder. That's right, revolutionary thinking is a symptom of mental illness, and there's a more liberal, bourgeois person locked away deep in our minds stuck in an endless time loop.
