Re: <nettime> Return to feudalism

When the OWS' twitter account and website got hijacked by certain Justine
Tunney and co., it was rare.
Those days when Tunney got hired by Google and started to promote her boss
and the working conditions at Google campus -like free lunch- it was pretty

Then she went on promoting minocracy on twitter, even publicly campaigning
for Eric f.ink Schmidt as CEO for the US.. it was like a sci-fi
Things changed when Snowden leaked about the PRISM, and all other stuff..
and Assange published the book about Google's visit..
This was Wikileak's first effective sabotaging to the upcoming US

Schmidt lost all his chance to make a serious candidate,
He became publicly as a bad candidate as say Anne Marie Slaughter, George
Soros, or Henry Kissenger's, excellency.
Hillary was not any better though.

Trump + Bennon, and Industrial Internet guy behind Cambridge Analytica, ran
a counter-campaign, not against a Clinton but against Tunney's premature US
CEO campaign for Google Party's Schmidt candidate.
Hillary was so unpopular after Wikileak's intervention that she looked even
worse to (global) public then Schmidt.
Then, Trump took over as the CEO of US.

Silicon Valley is in grief but there emerges a new contender candidate..
Elon Musk.
What is common in Musk, Schmidt, Soros, Slaughter, Kissinger,.. less but
also with Clinton and Trump being the worse of the worse?
We are looking at the realisation of Platos' dream of philosopher king.
These people do not belong to capitalist class anymore. They are
philosopher kings to be.
Especially Musk and Schmidt..
Kissinger and Soros do belong to the previous generation, still have to
bear an adviser position.

The agency of managerial class, which is preparing to claim full economic
and political power, unified, absolute is Musk, and Schmidt.
The way Trump translates such thrust, and by reversing towards national
capitalists, sounds and looks like fascism
Which was a form of managerial class power-claim; though was not aiming
absolute power.

Its contemporary varieties was developmental-nationalist and
Keynesian-corporatist, and nomenclature-socialist forms of state.
Managerial class,did not have the economic means to forge a full-scale
attack then.

It has today captured both Wall Street, Washington, Silicon Valley,
Beijing, Moscow, and Brussels..
Capitalists this time might really be f.cked up.
But worse then the capitalists, is the situation of those non-capitalist
and non-managerial ones.

Billions of whose lives are at fire as of today.
Some of those amongst the billions are against all forms of domination,
they are divergent class, los unmanagables giving the fight.
We are at the dawn of a last major fight to be given between the ruling/to
be classes hungry for absolute power
and those who would never accept to be ruled and bullied like this, also on
be half of the passivized.
