If you haven’t yet, consider this selection from the 2013 Catalyst Thesis: “The greatest obstacle… would be the prevailing notion of citizenship, and so the targeted de-legitimization of nations and citizenship is a worthy goal for any currents of techno-liberation. Such a goal can be achieved by thwarting the divisions among nations and thus violating the ideological mask maintaining global disparities. Differences of language and culture represent significant barriers that justify separation and disparity among groups in the global system. If technologies can be developed that allow for greater communication across borders, for example technologies that enhance what the internet is already doing and allow the language barriers to be eroded, then such technologies will help to undermine the social cohesion of nation-states. In turn, this action will force people to re-examine their identities in a more rational way. They may, in this process, de-legitimize and question the concepts of nation and citizen and turn to another basis of identity instead. In addition to breaking down the language barriers, the leaking of state information can also serve to de-legitimize the state and undermine its bullying power with the assistance of technology.” We have seen the power in the DNA of our technology, and the sin is not to act boldly but to deny the human right to that power. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html
