[liberationtech] Jacob Appelbaum's 29C3 keynote

Bishop Zareh bishop at designafternext.com
Mon Dec 31 16:09:37 PST 2012


Wow. It's nice to see some validation of things I have been saying privately, but afraid to admit publicly.

I seen this meme around a few times in the past ten years, and I tend to like it. Despite being a downer-trip, it can motivate activists.

"We have Lost the War". The 'war' is not a metaphorical one. There have been casualties. It is important. 'We' are a majestic plural, a plurality of majesty, encompassing. And 'Lost' is not reversible. The time has past and our best attempts were not enough.

I also really enjoyed gonggri's follow up blog post:  "We are all German now", http://rop.gonggri.jp/?p=66
as if to say, someday we will all feel the guilt of our unavoidable culpability in this societal shift. 

My response would be "The war is over? finally! We may have lost something special, but maybe now we can get back to some positive envisioning of the future. Those seem to have disappeared when Bush took office. This apocalypse thread is running a bit bare."

My .02, Bishop Z
