No technodevelopmental outcomes are inevitable but that futurologists will declare them so.

Trump Harrumph
Although there was some half-hearted fluttering about the bald ugliness of what he was up to, GOP functionaries and corporate media outlets in my view still mostly legitimated and even amplified the brief Donald Trump surge of popularity with the bully bloc...

Oh, "Anger," Is It?
Donald Trump is not tapping into "voter anger." He is tapping into white racism. And he is not cute and saying otherwise is not cute either.

Question!
Is there an already available and accepted nomenclature distinguishing basic income advocacy which is treated as part of a bundle of democratizing entitlements as against basic income advocacy as part of a libertopian deregulatory/privatizing wrecking ball?...

Haters Demand Hate
Those who are defending Major Garrett as "doing his job" seem to think journalism's job is asking Obama why he hates America so much over and over again in every conceivable variation.

"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."
