If there's anyone other than FTX who's really to blame, here, it's me.  I've written some fiction that tries to walk people through the experience of abandoning sunk costs and facing reality.  Including my most recent work.

Caroline Ellison, according to her tumblr, had even started reading it...

But her liveblogs cut out before she got very far in.

I just wasn't a good-enough writer; I lost my reader's attention, and with it, perhaps, the world.


We do not know her absolute state of mind when FTX (mis)used customer deposits. But, for all its worthiness, I wouldn't have predicted ahead of time that EY's writings packed a sufficient multiplicative weight to attain the sufficient condition that drove the state. I think the simple answer is whole (per the current corpus of evidence); 'FTX.'.
