Funny that many critiques of technology focus on the large scale, societal consequences of technology, and not like how it effects the individual. I guess that does rely on some kind of psychology though which is tricky

Wait.... is this the anarchybang caller instance?

Another lovely reading group conversation in the bag.

How free can you be if you're still inside a cage?

For next week we will be reading Social and Humane Liberalism, stopping before the Postscript. As always, hope to hear from you! :)

coconut 

Okay just to join in on the coconut discourse as a facetious asshole I did a bit of quick research and what I found has larger implications about coconuts and anticiv.

Seriously, Cube has a much more astute understanding of the nihilism of late stage capital than Platform. Platform is essentially a primer for proto-Marxists, and its understanding of capitalist relations is still essentially that of the 19th/20th century. Cube, on the other hand, has a grasp on the transfiguration of late-neoliberalism into what Sayaka Valencia calls "gore capitalism".

Whereas Platform remains sentimental in its scale and its focus on human understanding/action -- the motivations are still human-centric; the solution is still some version of solidarity and revolutionary self-sacrifice -- Cube simulates the experience of being born into a system from which there is no evident escape, no history, no explanation, and no understandable governing logic; just pure violence, exploitation, oppression, with no discernable meaning or reason or solution.

It is with great shame that I rescind my previous coconut related comments. It seems that hating coconut water is in fact relic of colonial times that I have since disavowed. I am now true coconut lover and never intended my coconut related views to harm the Bougainville Revolutionary Army

"Coconut water is LIKELY SAFE for most adults when consumed as a drink. It might cause fullness or stomach upset in some people. But this is uncommon. In large amounts, coconut water might cause potassium levels in the blood to become too high. This might lead to kidney problems and irregular heartbeat."
