Re: <nettime> The False Defences of Utopian Thought.


I'm referring to the fact that deferring decisions to quantum throw of

appears to be massive setting of the scene for Something to happen.
Like a pagan ritual. Or cargo cult in the best case - we have all the
elements of revolution, WTF is it?

The future belongs to those who can imagine it.
