12-02-2013 23:28The careful look at this world reveals a lethal diagnosis: imperialism. The symptoms are obvious, the denial is total, the precedents for cure are rare, and yet its track record is long and its destructive forces are peaking ever more. What is new is that the technology gap is closing, the period which let imperialism grow but also provided the possibility of independence from it. The cyber imperialism of now brings back the worst aspect of tribal life, and only the worst, and is trying to enslave it for its destructive forces - the impossibility of independence. This is especially odd since if anything good can be said about technological progress then it is that it removed any material need for social dependency. One need not adore the technology it brought, but as a result thereof it was possible to take other ways than the most aggressive group in the tribe. Now technology seems to produce an impossibility to choose any other ways than the most aggressive group in the species.
