#Global #PartyPanopticon:

#PRC "gov't, which has built an extensive digital infrastructure & security apparatus to ctrl dissent on its own platforms, is going to even greater lengths to extend its internet dragnet to unmask & silence those who criticize"

...the #PRC "on @Twitter, @Facebook & other international #SocialMedia.

These new investigations, targeting sites blocked inside #China, are relying on sophisticated technological methods to expand the reach of #Chinese authorities & the list of targets"

"To hunt people, [#PRC] security forces use advanced investigation #software, #PublicRecords & #databases to find all their #PersonalInformation & international #SocialMedia presence.

🚨 #BestOf2021 🚨

It’s simple. Here are my favorite releases. I’ve broken out by sub-genre and kept it to the cream of the crop. This is Top Gun. Best of the best.

#BestOf2021

“Miscellaneous”

Those releases that don’t neatly fit a category are often the most interesting. #Mehenet #FuegoEterno #Dakhma #Empyrium #Baazlvaat

Baazlvaat was clearly the discovery of the year. Super raw production with some ingenious songwriting spanning styles
#BestOf2021

#Doom

All flavors of doom here from Stoner to Sabbathian. #Wheel & #Monolord bringing actual songs with concrete riffs, #MethadoneSkies with post rock psych, and #Wedge & #IndicaBlues stoning the place up. Indica brought together all the above thru a desert filter

"If you go to, say, Amazon and under books type in #Philosophy, or Philosophy/Truth…you will get a litany of books with the phrase “post #truth” in the title. It is, apparently, a #posttruth world now."

"This is related to what I experience as absent in daily life. Post truth is post experience in some sense. As Cory Morningstar put it in our podcast (#25); 'we are being reprogrammed'."

[#SocialEngineerring - a prerequisite for transition to #4IR]
"Of course the more profound elements of the #reprogramming are to be found in the #digital revolution. There is no way to overemphasize the impact of the internet & its various platforms....

Societies of the west are increasingly demoralized...."

just read #DarkMatters by @wewatchwatchers. i love history, i love art, and i have a love/hate thing with tech. but this book manages to provide both long historical context & genuine engagement w/arts while talking about hi tech surveillance. remarkable.

foucault, bentham, and the #panopticon are well traveled ground. to that #DarkMatters adds the branding of human flesh and the slave ship as setting the stage for modern surveillance.

more historical context? in the 1800s there were #LanternLaws in new york city that required Black & Indigenous people not accompanied by a white person to carry candle laterns. Anyone not self-illuminated could be stopped by any random white person.
