Let's think of this platform as a social state. It has its own system, a top-down allocation of resources. People enter the platform either forced or voluntarily, and they have to survive within the established system. Some people carry weapons (violence), others books (civilization). In the upper can eat full, naturally there is a space to speak civilization, and in the belly is not enough to fill the lower, lucky to eat leftovers from the upper, the bottom can only eat people. But in this system (food and clothing is not solved) to use civilized means to reform is not feasible, self-discipline is against human nature, so we must start from the outside, to force change. So the system is cold-blooded, but the people at the top may still have a trace of humanity, and sending a signal to the top hoping to impress the managers is really just a last-ditch attempt at resistance by the people at the bottom. The setting of the film is really wonderful, it shows the naked majority of people in the system is such a survival, whether willing to be slaves or reformers, ultimately can only hope for the children (the next generation), and may not be able to succeed, is really a harsh reality.
