  • Franco “Bifo” Berardi - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    Russian war is in the making at the Ukrainian border In Ferguson Missouri another racialized killing reveals the American police state and the poverty industrial complex two million homeless in the US and counting In Gaza Israel bombards the world s largest open air prison and blames the victims most of them children for dying while the world looks on In Northern Africa Western powers prepare for the next season of Gaddafi blowback In Liberia Ebola fans the flames of civil and regional war one bleeding eyeball at a time In Mexico a momentary silence shrouds the bloodiest drug war humanity has ever known with cartels ranking among the wealthiest corporations While capitalism will continue to thrive thanks to massive slavery and eco catastrophe the next 20 years will be marked by the clash between financial abstraction and biofascism A social cognitive breakdown is estranging the masses from the body so the decerebrated body is taking the form of aggression Those who have been lost in the competition react under the banners of aggressive identification We can even see fascism revived by the vengeful spirit of the dispossessed BIO FINANCIAL POWER Nation states are over stripped by the global machine of finance computation and all pervading behavioral Big Data algorithms Global corporations are replacing nation states as holders of power We now embrace the first stages of the automation of mind language and emotions the architecture of bio financial power Power in fact is no longer political or military It is based more and more on the penetration of techno linguistic automatisms into the sphere of language Soon life will be based on the automation of cognitive activity Who cares if the US military machine is running on empty because of Bush s self defeating strategy it s a remnant of geopolitical thinking now dead THE CIRCLE Mediocre as it is Dave Eggers s novel The Circle is a metaphor for the relation between technology communication emotion and power The Circle is the name of the most powerful corporation in the world a sort of conglomerate of Google Facebook Paypal and YouTube Three men lead the company Stockton is a financial shark Bayley is a utopian and Ty Gospodinov is the project s hidden mastermind The main character of the book is Mae a young woman hired by The Circle during the Completion the final phase in the implementation of TrueYou a program intended to enforce the recording of every instant of life for pervasive ceaseless sharing Mae becomes the corporation s spokesperson the face that appears every day on the infinite channels of The Circle s television network the ambassador of the new credo The Circle is all about the utter capture of human attention ceaseless communication mandatory friendliness and creation of a new neediness the obsessive need to express and share One may remark that Eggers is simply re enacting Orwell more than 60 years after the publishing of 1984 That s true but in the final pages
