Re: <nettime> Will Rational Exuberance Prevail?

No doubt the thing to do is to relax, don't overly fret about the
US election outcome, why bother to organize, do legwork, serve
on dreary election committees, seek out and listen to those
who you've never spoken to as an equal to learn from them
what's eating their gizzards, to hear what they think of laid-back
thinkers and indolent fingerpointers and supremacist whiners 
and ever so condescending shits, sure, best to herdishly blame 
those who do these get together and work hard to elect their
own kind.

It's smart to stay clear of the mess, that way there's no
culpability, no risk, no need to give up prejudice about the
consumerist luts, easy to lay low and work the previleged
angles of those who really love the sweatless perks. That's 
the aristocratic way, argue the finer points of powedered
wigs, the curve of calf, the vulgarity of the ingrate peasantry.
