Re: <nettime> alex van der bellen wins austrian presidentials!!!

These are connected, however unpalatable it sounds. The single prevailing reason for the mass people movements, voluntary or involuntary, in the last few centuries, since governments had solid means of closing the borders, is to lower the local wages and increase profits, thus the local workforce (with decent wages and comfortable middleclass lifestyle) did vanish, but it is a consequence, not the cause.

With upcoming automation the population import is becoming a moot point, so the immigration will eventually stop. Industries that are still supporting immigration are the ones on the losing side.

culture". The loss of 'our own culture' is probably a moot point, but
the loss of homes and jobs is very real, and massive. It is being
deflected into a false concern about immigration and refugees, an issue
much less pressing in absolute terms. But as long as 'the establishment'
refuses to address substantially the homes and jobs issue, it is
complicit, and very directly and deliberatly so, to the raising of false
flags  by extreme right politicians.
