Shouldn’t Have Bet On It

Washington, D.C.

Sam Francis, Chronicles, April 1992:

There is a good deal of talk about how post-industrial technologies will lead to a radical decentralization of organizations. Don’t bet on it. The technology works both ways. It can be used to promote decentralization, but it also lends itself to tighter control from the center. Human nature seems to prefer more power and less responsibility, and my own bet is that post-industrial technologies will accommodate that preference.

Even in his passing, it’s Sam’s world, we’re merely taking up space and consuming resources in it.

And don’t buy this bit about just wanting to root out fake news.  This is all about narrative enforcement and censorship.  Like Rush Limbaugh says, social media gave the mainstream media their monopoly back.  And why wouldn’t anyone conclude that?  After all, many social media news services are nothing more than overglorified NYT feed readers.

If they close down the web that’s good. The Internet is a relief valve where angry Whites can vent their anger. Close it down and censor it, and all that rage will be trapped in a pressure cooker. There’s a lot of discontent out there, but the anger has been building for years. Without a safety valve it won’t take long to boil over.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
