You have meddled with the primary forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won’t have it! Is that clear?

You think you merely stopped a business deal. That is not the case. The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tide and gravity. It is ecological balance.

You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no Third Worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems. One vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-varied, multi-national dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rands, rubles, pounds and shekels.

It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic, and sub-atomic and galactic structure of things today.

And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature. And you will atone.

Am I getting through to you, Mr Beale?

You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen and howl about America and democracy. There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today.

What do you think the Russians talk about in their Councils of State? Karl Marx? They get out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, mini-max solutions, and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments, just like we do.

We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr Beale. The world is a college of corporations, inexorably determined by the immutable bye-laws of of business. The world is a business, Mr Beale. It has been since man crawled out of the slime.

And our children will live, Mr Beale, to see that … perfect … world in which there is no war nor famine, oppression or brutality. One vast and ecumenical holding company for whom all men will work to serve a common profit. In which all men will hold a share of stock.

All necessities provided. All anxieties tranquilized. All boredom amused.

How To Help A Friend In Their Job Search

From the way you act on a daily basis to the general advice and assistance you offer, here are a few dos and don’ts to keep in mind.

1) Don’t: Always Offer Advice

2) Do: Help Them Look Better Online

3) Do: Network Together

4) Don’t: Ask For Status Updates Too Aggressively

5) Do: Send Job Listings

Do remember, even if you don’t proofread a single resume, your support can play a big part in helping your friend land a new role.

Is any of it real?

I mean, look at this. Look at it!
A world built on fantasy!

Synthetic emotions in the form of pills,
psychological warfare in
the form of advertising,
mind-altering chemicals
in the form of food,
brainwashing seminars in the form of media,
controlled isolated bubbles
in the form of social networks.
Real? You want to talk about reality?
We haven’t lived in
anything remotely close to it
since the turn of the century.
We turned it off, took out the batteries,
snacked on a bag of GMOs
while we tossed the remnants
in the ever-expanding dumpster
of the human condition.
We live in branded houses
trademarked by corporations
built on bipolar numbers
jumping up and down on digital displays,
hypnotizing us into the biggest
slumber mankind has ever seen.

You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo,
before you can find anything real.
We live in a kingdom of bullshit,
a kingdom you’ve lived in for far too long.

We are all together now,
whether you like it or not.

The Laborers Who Keep Dick Pics and Beheadings Out of Your Facebook Feed | WIRED

Inside the soul-crushing world of content moderation, where low-wage laborers soak up the worst of humanity, and keep it off your Facebook feed.

Various too-long-for-Twitter thoughts on that amazing content moderation piece.

1. Knowing that this pool of labor exists, we now know that what is policed on these networks is a matter of values rather than capability. Dick picks and gore are right out, but death and rape threats against women? Go about your business.

2. Which is not to minimize the labor/exploitation issues, of course. I honestly thought a lot of this was handled algorithmically, so it was very interesting to learn about how it actually works. It’s yet more of the outsourcing of nasty human externalities by the “clean” tech industries.

3. This is some spooky next-level shit in terms of networks, globalization, colonialism, cultural imperialism, etc. We’re now consciously and systematically abstracting our collective depravity, suffering, and cruelty into the network and outsourcing the emotional labor of dealing with it to the people of the Global South. Whoa. It’s pretty much the same as the physical global economy, but way more bizarre and postmodern.  

4. Surely there is something akin to this already in the pomo literature? A networked human depravity / suffering economy? It feels like the atmospherics of this at least are in DFW, DeLillo, and Pynchon, but I can’t think of specifics besides “The Suffering Channel.” And of course it’s there in embryo in Kafka, like most of the more macabre parts of the post/modern condition.  

5. Dostoevsky would have been absolutely obsessed with this. This is a mass machine for reproducing and confronting the Problem of Evil. It’s like the horse scene from Crime and Punishment multiplied millions of times over. I wonder what he would have made of it all?

6. If I’m picking out time capsule pieces to capture What Life was Like in 2014, this goes near the top of the list. That doesn’t speak very well of life in 2014, but well, here we are.

The 90's/early 00's was the golden age it was like heaven on earth. People actually had social skills & didn't hang out on social networks, friends were real. Economy was good. There was so much color in videos & energy. Those days are truly missed. Now we live in a dark age, where nothing has meaning. And we miss the 90's so much people always talk about the shows,music, the style etc. Because we want it back :(

I loved the 90s and forever will, but I also do love the movies, music, tv, and fashion of now. 

The only thing I want back from the 90s is more/better representation of POC on tv/movies.
