"The sovereignty you have over your work will inspire far more people than the actual content ever will." - Gaping Void
On Friday went to a nice holiday party where a couple of kids of friends attended, now young adults. One of them pointed to the difference between digital natives like him and all of us Baby Boomers.I like your tabular overview of NetoCracy and especially your observation that conspiracy theory forms an epistemology. It think it's this theory of networks that's a real difference between folks of my generation and our kids.I really liked John Eden's essay for exploring neo-folk through the lens of networks. I despair about politics in the USA. As a people we've never thought much about ideology. The lunatic right is busy promulgating ideology and seems better at introducing Americans to theories about networks. Such an approach to analysis is a double-edged sword as Eden's post makes clear. I'm hopeful our kids can set my cohort on a path to more critical reason.
Agreed. Read the next couple of articles I just linked on this theme.Southgate's "improvisational" syncretions are amazing, as he tries to merge fragments of anarchist, communist, racist, green, primitivist, catholic, individualist, pagan etc. thought.
