Re: <nettime> Jaron lanier: The Internet destroyed the middle class


It has nothing to do with 'digital' and everything to do with
productivity and near-zero friction distribution.

No one needs 95% of 'producers' in the culture industry. The 5%
are giving us all we need (and only tiny fraction of these 5% are
employed by MSM - the rest are independents catering to all tastes and
psychosis.)

We cannot consume any more. Just go die quietly somewhere.
