Re: <nettime> Why Glenn Greenwald's new media venture is a big deal


Dear Joly.

The only reason any of this is surprising to Muggels is that the Virtualization seems to be becoming Real, as the New Aesthetic would suggest.

Any Marxist paying attention would have to argue that Real was an invention of Class, and never existed before humans.

Perhaps I offer too little sympathy for those inside the Matrix, but the uses of Language have remained fairly consistent throughout recorded history despite the machinations of Formal society.

Humans are easily mis-lead, and this is why Democracy relies on an Educated populace. The rest of it is theater; stop kidding yourself.

To put it sharply: people do not believe what is on Fox News, their belief structure is far more complex than that, simply because they are human.
