Re: <nettime> Wisconsin report

Now, John Young (to distinguish you from John Hopkins, whose
Hopkinsness I am slightly doubtful about) - I suppose a lot of what
you say is true, but the overall argument is a little extreme, don't
you think? I mean, there has to be some good in, or coming from, these
demonstrations? Maybe those like you who can see through the charade
should take the lead? That way things might work better? Meaning, the
movement - if it can be called that - would be channeled in whatever
direction is the right one in your view?
