Facebook founding president sounds alarm - BBC News
do you know your neighbour? Chomsky manufactured consent. perfect personal propagandist. outrage machine. time waster. feedback loop for No Representation feelings. “I use these platforms, I just don’t let these platforms use me,” // Adam Curtis - FB can not present you with a future, a proposal. bc it is insular isolated environment (perfect personal propagandist) even if you are 'connected with the world.' It's a sham. Its millions of bubbles. not "A" world connected. Occypy was better than facebook. But Occupy hat not even a handful of leaders. political social economic movements need leaders to refer to, dialogue, interview, sign policy papers, etc etc. mass democracy still needs a leader and leadershuip and management and people skills. see Momentum.

I sold sex to fund my unpaid internships. Poor kids are still battling the class gap | Paris Lees | Opinion | The Guardian
Granularitaet von Lebenslaeufen. Ossi diskrimination (monitor) in den CEO etagen sind ossis und auch politik nicht angekommen auf bundesebene. privileg always having a leg-up from parents or grandparents. // I remember going on Radio 4 a few years ago, and thinking that all the people I met inside Broadcasting House sounded strange. I couldn’t put my finger on it at first. And then the penny dropped. They sounded like the people on television. The people on the radio. The people you see on the news. The way prime ministers sound. I remember sitting in the car on the way home and realising: “Oh, you’re the people who run everything.”

In our focus on the digital, have we lost our sense of what being human means? | Genevieve Bell | Opinion | The Guardian
MAKE OUR OWN FUTURE - And of course, there are bigger questions about the role of technology more broadly. In making the machines smarter, we have sacrificed a little something of ourselves – we run the risk of being reduced to data and the decisions it drives. I believe we are more than data, more than just intelligence. I worry that, in our current focus on the digital, we have lost some of our agency and some of our sense of what being human might mean. But I don’t believe this is inevitable or irreversible.

What Pete Phoenix has learned from 30 years of direct action: ‘You have to be relentless’ | World news | The Guardian
“It’s not just about protesting against what’s wrong,” says Phoenix. “Twice as much energy should be put into protesting for what we want, creating the kind of world we want to live in. We’re pro-community, pro-public transport, pro-permaculture, pro-solutions. We need a kind of Marshall plan for the planet. Unless we cooperate, we’re in danger of turning the whole world into ashes. The system we have at the moment is destroying our air and water. We can’t have infinite growth on a finite planet.”

End austerity – and kickstart Martin Luther King’s revolution of values | Richard Kozul-Wright | Opinion | The Guardian
Hyperglobalisation has concentrated massive wealth in a few hands, boosting the cult of materialism that the great civil rights campaigner warned us about // Byung-Chul Han // The real threat now is to the underlying trust, cohesion and sense of fairness that markets depend upon in order to function effectively. Against this, insisting that “there is no alternative” is yesterday’s political slogan. People everywhere desire much the same thing: a decent job, a secure home, a safe environment, a better future for their children and a government that listens and responds to their concerns. They want a different deal from that offered by hyperglobalisation. Prosperity for all cannot be delivered by austerity-minded politicians, rent-seeking corporations and speculative bankers. What is urgently needed now is a global new deal. Three elements – recovery, regulation and redistribution – remain at the heart of any such deal. Book Richard Kozul-Wright is director of the globalisation and development strategies division in the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Its annual report, Beyond Austerity: Towards a Global New Deal, is published today
