Re: <nettime> free speech and financialisation


The cliche of artist interlocutors stroking one another with sappy
artworks and puff-ball questions for masterful ghost-scripted
pontificating by Julian is pure NYC world capitals of capitalism
stagecrafting of how commerce undergirds the high-branded, prize-winning!
culture for consumption by blockbuster addicts.

As one of those cliched artist interlocutors you do not bother to name, i would like to observe, john, that your own linguistically painful post seems to exist merely to make you feel better about something or other.

Are you more upset by Julian Assange, by

and NGOs -- and whistleblowers, not to overlook
documentary makers and once honorable alt media,

or perhaps zizek,

or

 lucre-driven genre of unctuous fancy branding

or

 pure NYC world capitals of capitalism

or

stagecrafting

or

of how commerce undergirds the high-branded, prize-winning! culture for
consumption by blockbuster addicts.

yours,
