Re: <nettime> aaaaarg lawsuit digest #ANON


Unfortunately, the current knowledge distribution is sustainable. Due to 
high productivity and automation, the system can function well while 
majority of the population is illiterate (Idiocracy comes to mind), and 
universal knowledge distribution is not sine qua non for the machine to 
go through its routine.

The poetic intervention being the only possible one is evidence of 
defeat, and perhaps a means to keep the light going on, so that we don't 
forget. The fact that such interventions are prosecuted hints that they 
work in this sense, but let's not kid ourselves that they are anything 
more than memory refresh cycles. Poets will get fucked, that's the price.
