Seitenscheitel sprechen Bände

Kritik im Zuge der NSA-Enthüllungen ist also "Anti-Amerikanismus"? Das ist ungefähr so, als würde man Widerstand gegen Hitler "Anti-Deutschlandismus" nennen.

Der Vorwurf der vermeintlichen Totalausspähung in Deutschland ist nach Angaben der NSA, des britischen Dienstes und unserer Nachrichtendienste vom Tisch.
Ronald P.

Der Vorwurf, daß die Totalausspähung nur vermeintlich erfolgt, ist tatsächlich vom Tisch.

Rest kackt in's Nest hat den Wahnsinn nicht kapiert - die Welt
ist nicht klein auch kein Dorf sie wird zusamm'ngeknüllt - Massen

meisten sitzen still - nehmen brav ihre Pill'n ha'm keine
Ahnung wer sie sind - lern'n aus Strafen ihre Ziele -

letzten Atem ätzend - sich selbst unterschätzend während-

dessen wächst das Netz dem Mensch - ins Rückenmark träum' von
Robodienern sei froh wenn Du Dich - auf dem Dronenteppich

damit dass wir sicher sind da kichert jedes Kind - würde
man sie nicht von kleinauf in Geschichten einspinn'n - alle

it's not over until the pancake says "ow."

When certain things such as critical thinking, rational discourse, empathy and investigative journalism shrivel up and die, it's like a failing parachute: it doesn't hurt, not right away, and until it does there is this really fun breeze.

putting the "no" in drones

The cops don't make the quotas, the soldiers don't make the orders, the generals don't make the politics, the politicians just try to keep the military industrial complex fat and snugly and the citizens happy, the citizens just crave security because that's what the media says is what citizens crave while the military industrial complex just seeks profit because it's required to by stockholders and everyone else involved, who are just trying to put food and/or yachts on their family.

"Just doing my job" has been deprecated in 1945.

some still honestly believe

Some still honestly believe that automation will lead to people being freed up for more creative work, instead of making more and more people obsolete and concentrating power in fewer and fewer hands, and that total surveillance and total control will lead to total safety, even though those at the levers time and time again have proven that they have little problem with murder and sadism, as long as it is profitable and their control is maintained.

Some still honestly believe that those who grab and maintain power with empty promises, lies and murder, do so for ends that will ultimately benefit them and everybody. They think that in this game of musical chairs, the winners will completely transform once they won, and will give out free chairs and food to everybody else; instead of mowing the rest down for blocking their view, for standing on their golfing range, for breathing their air, for eating their food, for drinking their water.. or simply because they can.

Progress

Progress is not a straight line. Imagine a tree, and every branch is a decision which leads to other possible decisions. Even if you were forced to "move forward", ending up in a particular spot is still not a foregone conclusion; "progress is inevitable" is just a lame excuse for the bad decisions we make, and the hot water it ends us, others, and those who come after us in.

The next worst thing just after using it as a manual..

1984 was a work of fiction, that is undebatable. It did not happen. It's not based in reality whatsoever, and there is no indication that anything written in the novel logically carries from anything else written in the novel. Things happen in 1984 because it makes for a good story, not because that's what would happen next.

singularity = lots of creeps in a sardine can?

“Initially, we were thrilled to see a bit of our soul come alive in this so called ‘machine,’” said Dr. Akito Takahashi, the principal investigator on the project. “This was really the final step for us in one of the fundamentals of the singularity.”

Ewww! I don't care about the robots that much, but the people who build them are tragically fascinating.

“This is only a minor setback. I have full faith that we will one day live side by side with, and eventually love and be loved by, robots,”

Why do websites seem to be evolving not like sneakers or buildings or toothbrushes (= usable, recognizable, but wildly varying in design), but more like an AK-47? Because "cheap and fast to produce, high rate of conversions" is all there is to making a website? Then why not skip to injecting ad-bots that assemble themselves out of waste directly in the brain?

How did the web invented by universities to exchange information and used by people to communicate turn this hellhole of pamphlets and parrots, and so fast? How the fuck is Twitter an actual thing, and not a joke in an advanced society about how primitive lifeforms might use computing machines? Not that I mean to pick on Twitter, I was just grabbing a random thing out of this bag of bullshit.
