The R.U. Sirius Interview: It’s Better to be Inspired than Wired | Lebkowsky | CTheory
"Cyberculture (a meme that I'm at least partly responsible for generating, incidentally) has emerged as a gleeful apologist for this kill-the-poor trajectory of the Republican revolution. You find it all over Wired - this mix of chaos theory and biological modeling that is somehow interpreted as scientific proof of the need to devolve and decentralize the social welfare state while also deregulating and empowering the powerful, autocratic, multinational corporations. You've basically got the breakdown of nation states into global economies simultaneous with the atomization of individuals or their balkanization into disconnected sub-groups, because digital technology conflates space while decentralizing communication and attention. The result is a clear playing field for a mutating corporate oligarchy, which is what we have. I mean, people think it's really liberating because the old industrial ruling class has been liquefied and it's possible for young players to amass extraordinary instant dynasties. But it's savage and inhuman. Maybe the wired elite think that's hip. But then don't go around crying about crime in the streets or pretending to be concerned with ethics."  interview  1996  1990s  r.u._sirius  technology  wired  internet  corporation  power  corruption  society  politics  humanity  republican  theory  1989  1980s  mondo_2000  ethics  communication  jon_lebkowsky  quote  oligarchy  injustice

january 2017 by cluebucket Write a Letter to the Future
for some reason Megadeth "Sweating Bullets" comes to mind...
"Hello me, meet the real me
And my misfit's way of life
A dark black past is my
Most valued possession
Hindsight is always 20-20
But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy
Speak of mutually assured destruction?
Nice story, tell it to Reader's Digest!"

Can This Marriage Be Saved? - The New York Times
"('Sitting here for six hours you just know what it’s like to be married to him,' Coché muttered to me once, out of earshot of the offending spouse)"
"Gradually, with industrialization and the movement of jobs outside the home, love replaced communal economic imperatives as the glue between husbands and wives, striking two blows to the institution. First, romantic love isn’t known for its long-lasting adhesive properties; and second, no one is as deeply invested in a marriage as the two people in it.

"The group is something of an answer to the latter problem, Coché says — the modern equivalent perhaps of the village that Michael Vincent Miller ... depicts ...: What would it be like, he writes, 'if as in the Puritan villages of old, representatives from the larger community were to step in, calm the two down, stress the larger social importance of their well-being and offer support and help by redirecting the couple’s energies away from mutilating each other toward something more cooperative.'"
"'Causing the right amount of trouble is an art form.'”

My Nice Boyfriend Makes Me Crazy
it's not my problem, but it's a lot of worthwhile words about self-examination and open communication in relationships. helpful for that.

"Lots of people, LOTS AND LOTS OF FUCKING PEOPLE, really, truly don't want to connect. They just want to do what they do without being challenged or being forced to show up. They want to talk about the easy stuff, keep it light, ignore the trouble, keep the peace, don't look too hard at anything, and don't get too honest. There's another tier, above that: The people who want intimacy, but only on THEIR terms. They want access to an open person, sure, so they can turn that person on and off, like a faucet. Great when they happen to want you, not so great when you need something from them and they can't handle being needed.

"But there are a few people who can show up. If they see that you want them to show up, they can show up. If you're present, they will find a way to be present, too. I think that's what you have in this man, even if you aren't quite there yet yourself."

Mythcommunication: It’s Not That They Don’t Understand, They Just Don’t Like The Answer |
"These women said they generally offered excuses that posited an inability rather than unwillingness to accept the offer because, in one woman’s words, 'that would stop the boy from blaming you.'”
but then the takeaway of the study? "The problem of sexual coercion cannot be fixed by changing the way women talk."

Enemy Lurks in Briefings on Afghan War - PowerPoint -
"'It’s dangerous because it can create the illusion of understanding and the illusion of control,' General McMaster said in a telephone interview afterward. 'Some problems in the world are not bullet-izable.'"

"In General McMaster’s view, PowerPoint’s worst offense is not a chart like the spaghetti graphic, but rigid lists of bullet points... that take no account of interconnected political, economic and ethnic forces. 'If you divorce war from all of that, it becomes a targeting exercise'"

What does a General Assembly do? « Disaster Notes
"'There’s no ideal form of action. What’s essential is that action assume a certain form, that it give rise to a form instead of having one imposed on it... As for deciding on actions, the principle could be as follows: each person should do their own reconnaissance, the information would then be put together, and the decision will occur to us rather than being made by us. The circulation of knowledge cancels hierarchy; it equalizes by raising up.'"

Fashion is a Feminist Issue | Greta Christina's Blog
"It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial."
