The truth of # NotMeUs will be revealed the moment Bernie admits it's Not Me and Us scatters to the winds.

Less Is More?
It is funny how many people seem to fall for empty promises as something MORE rather than
something LESS than the incremental("ist") reforms achieved via organizing and compromise which they disdain as inadequate and slow.

How Many "Likes" Does It Take To Get To The Cure For All Diseases...? The World May Never Know.
Apparently , Mark Zuckerberg says he wants to cure all diseases this century. I recommend he begin with a narcissism cure.

Are We The Orcsies?
Now goblins are cruel, wicked, and bad-hearted. They make no beautiful things, but they make many clever ones. They can tunnel and mine as well as any but the most skilled dwarves, when they take the trouble, though they are usually untidy and dirty. Hammer...

"Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All"
Introduction

From Wikipedia: "Dale Carrico (born 1965) is an American critical theorist and rhetorician. He has extensively criticized the commercially-inflected rhetoric of futurology and the prudence of geoengineering. Carrico is a lecturer in the Department of Rhetoric at the University of California at Berkeley, from which he received his PhD. in 2005, and is also a member of the visiting faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute... [He] teaches philosophy, critical theory, and science and technology studies, focusing on the planetarity of both environmental concerns and peer-to-peer media formations [and] writes about the politics of technoscience, developmentalist ideology, futurological subcultures, and the suffusion of public life by marketing norms on his blog, Amor Mundi."
