In my truths there are lies when they're seen from the other side

electronic information is now a recreational drug. most people use twitter like a bong to try to self-medicate away their pain.

there's nothing i could put in this tweet that would be worth distracting you from whatever you're doing. unless what you're doing is scrolling through tweets.

as long as most people are more or less technologically illiterate, all of the moral and ethical questions about our technology will be answered by the technologists. Is that really what we want?

"In this world which is getting more closely and closely interconnected we have to learn to tolerate each other, we have to learn to put up with the fact that some people say things we don’t like. if we are to live together and not die together we must learn a kind of charity."

The media and universities are used to controlling the narrative by pushing ideas and people they don’t like outside the Overton Window of respectability. That game is over. Ideas and people don’t wither and die out on the fringe anymore, they just form new centres.

In our electronic culture you can’t punish people by kicking them out of the 'mainstream' conversation. The internet doesn’t work that way. The web doesn’t have a centre - it’s all fringe. Mainstream is just another stream.

i've never hearted a single tweet. i'm starting to realize how anti-social that is. kind of like never smiling at people. except when i smile i don’t have to worry about being dry humped by a bunch of algorithms. well, at least for now.

i’m just playing around … journeying into the heart of identity politics with a trunk for mindfulness has a certain gonzo twist to it. ... it will be interesting to see where this takes you.

So today is the white privilege conference at . It's a day dedicated to brainwashing children as young as 11 into thinking there's widespread racism in Canada. How sad.

I’d say the last few decades have proven again and again that radical change emerges outside a system. But that doesn’t negate the value of your personal experiment: is it possible to engage with party politics from a place of awareness? I see that as a kind of Gonzo buddhism.

same here. trying to edit a dead on arrival piece is essentially like trying to fix a bad musical performance in the mix. you can't. but a bad recording of a sublime performance can always be turned into something. i'm much more interested in process than product.

I think the party system was once a source of stability but is now a major source of instability and is unsustainable. To ‘identify’ with a party means plugging psychosomatically into its ideology and that’s just too volatile now that we all share an electronic nervous system.

Not to dismiss your personal experience but i think values cluster in predictable parties mostly because our political apparatus is engineered to homogenize the wildly divergent opinions of millions of people into a few large groups that can easily be herded by emotion.
