Re: <nettime> Shoshana Zuboff > The Secrets of Surveillance

"here's to that future" indeed, Brian, but I wonder how deeper we must 
sink before things get better. And as far as the 'reprise' (crisis is 
over) is concerned, the EU commision thinks the same of Europe, and 
wants to de-re-regulate (!) banking again, securitize private dept (a 
move framed as all for the benefit 'SME sector', as usual) and generally 
make believe the end of the tunnel is not only in sight, it has been 
passed. According to Saskia Sassen ('Expulsions') that actually might be 
believable and even work for real, provided you've cut out 30% orso of 
the people & their activities beforehand (cf Greece). But isn't it 
bogus? It surely is in EU, what about the USA?

(OK no refugee crisis and bickering among the States there ...)

Little to cheer about, I'm afraid.
