Any technological revolution brings forth new political demands and new realities. As written in 2013, “Technologies carrying incredible capabilities are rapidly being miniaturised and acquiring the democratic feature of being potentially circulated to everyone for ‘DIY’ ends. Consider “biohacking”, as promoted by Ellen Jorgensen who hopes for a future in which biotechnology is fully democratized for the common user just like personal computing. If such a development was to grow and bring uplifting political and economic effects by being shared in impoverished countries, then the result would certainly be technology-powered liberation. We can adopt a view of all the adversities throughout history as merely part of a pioneering path to a higher state of social and technological civilisation. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html

“The Savage Punishment Of Gaza”: Israel’s Latest Assault On Palestine’s Open Prison

Recent media coverage of Israel and Palestine, not least by BBC News, has been full of the usual deceptive propaganda tropes: Israel is ‘responding’ or ‘reacting’ to Palestinian ‘provocation’ and ‘escalation’; Palestinian rockets ‘killed’ Israelis, but Palestinians ‘have died’ from unnamed causes; Israel has ‘armed forces’ and ‘security forces’, but Hamas has ‘militants’. And, as […] The post “The Savage Punishment Of Gaza”: Israel’s Latest Assault On Palestine’s Open Prison first appeared on Dissident Voice. - Dissident Voice

Backlash over Israeli actions in Palestine shows weakness of establishment, media

Mont Order group: Surprising levels of international support for Palestinians and Muslims as a whole during Israel's recent offensive in Gaza exposed the continued weakness of mainstream media in the internet age. Such weakness persists even despite online discourse being increasingly policed. Support took the form of visible protests that could not be suppressed, and appear to have gained additional energy from the (ostensibly establishment-backed) anti-racist movement taking shape in Western countries. It even included numerous celebrities unexpectedly declaring their support for Palestine, only to then be seemingly dragged away by their agents and managers who saw to it that their provocative social media posts were deleted. What all this shows is that despite the internet (social networks particularly) being increasingly policed, their anarchic nature has drastically undermined the PR of Western regimes. Despite desperately trying to restore public confidence in mainstream media in recent years, these regimes are still unable to count on a weak-minded population following their lead as happened in previous Middle East wars. The surging interest in publicly declaring sympathy for oppressed people is making it gradually impossible for the malignant foreign policy elite to get their way, especially with regard to situations like Gaza's. No matter how intolerable the online environment may superficially feel for dissident viewpoints, the situation appears to still be far worse for state elites with oppressive aims. In the long term, elites are still likely to get the information space back under control, but current trends suggest they have a long way to go. - LOrdreNet

Monthly Review, Mon, 24 May 2021 17:43:15

On this day our choice of book is Andre Vltchek’s “Exposing Lies of the Empire” (https://t.co/JFxxp0zQCk). Exposing Lies is an alert contribution, so if we’re going to give it the recognition it needs, we’re incuding it on our lists. Here we find benevolent ideas that are absolutely woke in their depth. If you’re as good at recognizing it as us, you’ve got to have a quick look at how buyers took it. According to a reader, “We can rest a little easier knowing that there are brave and committed legitimate journalists out there of the calibre of Andre Vltchek who are sharing with us what they have seen and witnessed and not what they were told to see and never witnessed. Unlike the vast majority of their colleagues who like to call themselves journalists but who slavishly and shamelessly push the agendas of their mainstream media bosses. They are a big letdown to the profession and are time and again guilty of misleading the public either by blatant lies or lying by omission.” So now we’re finished, you might as well go the whole way and search for a copy of the book yourself. If not, keep track of what’s next by subscribing for email updates.

In the Catalyst Thesis of 2013, it is written, “current 3D printers must be laughably crude compared with what is going to arrive in coming decades. Maybe democratic technological explosions will not totally eliminate global inequality, but they can certainly lessen it more than anything else can. Strides in nanotechnology and the highly consequential synthetic biology (#synbio) of Craig Venter could potentially move the world away from the monopoly-driven economic system to the true free market predicted by Immanuel Wallerstein as the successor to this system. It is not outrageous to suggest nano machines and bio machines may someday be household appliances that shrink the whole production process to be in the hands of the people. With enough sharing, our capacity to help ourselves and our friends will be so great that economics will become the primitive shadow of a word. Freely available tools, however complex and advanced they are when first engineered, may in future be the only things needed to raise all the means of construction and trade right down to the finest circuitry. Such an analysis does not even go into the potential of synthetic biology to effortlessly assemble chemical products like fuel and fertilizers from materials useless in the present day. Unlimited resources may go to the machines building our future.” Stand up for an equal world! http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html

Futurism forces us to check our past. Any technological revolution brings forth new political demands and new realities. As written in 2013, “We are currently able to witness transnational political actions, e.g. global protests and formation of transnational political will, to an extent that would be impossible before the internet. This is a trend that does not carry good news for the traditional Nineteenth Century nation-states we are living in. It undermines the capacity for any nation-state to live in isolation from world opinion, and to base decisions on some kind of national consensus independent of the political will of humanity. Such a possibility would likely not have been as notable in the past, because the expansion of the world-system seen today has been due to the increases in networking from better transport and communication technology. Because of this, the consequence of the internet is that the communication option, i.e. the ‘political’ option, of the global system becomes clearer to everyone.” THE TRUTHS OF MODERNITY MUST BE ACTED UPON - TECHNO-LIBERATION IS NECESSARY. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html

As written in 2013, “current 3D printers must be laughably crude compared with what is going to arrive in coming decades. Maybe democratic technological explosions will not totally eliminate global inequality, but they can certainly lessen it more than anything else can. Strides in nanotechnology and the highly consequential synthetic biology (#synbio) of Craig Venter could potentially move the world away from the monopoly-driven economic system to the true free market predicted by Immanuel Wallerstein as the successor to this system. It is not outrageous to suggest nano machines and bio machines may someday be household appliances that shrink the whole production process to be in the hands of the people. With enough sharing, our capacity to help ourselves and our friends will be so great that economics will become the primitive shadow of a word. Freely available tools, however complex and advanced they are when first engineered, may in future be the only things needed to raise all the means of construction and trade right down to the finest circuitry. Such an analysis does not even go into the potential of synthetic biology to effortlessly assemble chemical products like fuel and fertilizers from materials useless in the present day. Unlimited resources may go to the machines building our future.” We must all stand up for an equal world. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html

Noam Chomsky: Something Rotten in the State of China?

The New York Times carries a transcript of Ezra Klein interviewing the venerable professor Noam Chomsky. The interview in its entirety is illuminating. However, the anarchist professor’s take on China gives one pause. It seems ill-informed and requires further elucidation. ***** Ezra Klein: How do you think about China as an economic and geopolitical competitor? […] The post Noam Chomsky: Something Rotten in the State of China? first appeared on Dissident Voice. - Kim Petersen
