For all the talk about the direct democracy, or even socialism, that is supposed to be, somehow, inherent to the structure of the internet and its so-called freeconomics (even as the suggestion comes in that the recent Moldovan 'Twitter revolution' was perhaps little more than just a pseudo-event in the other, i.e., non-Badiouian, sense). Isn't there actually something of a new feudalism in the way Google and such like lord it over the rest of the world, beaming benignly all the while, as the city of Lenoir, N.C. recently discovered? Is Google malicious? asks Miller, "What is sure is that it is stupid... Meaning escapes Google, which encodes but doesn't decode." It is the stupidity of the toff, who sees the whole online world as its dominion, its birth right, but hasn't the faintest idea about governance, beyond the inane platitude of, "Don't be evil." Surely only someone with good reason to be suspected would insist so vocally on its own benevolence. . .
