Re: <nettime> "Speak Out with Snowden, Assange and Manning"

This display helps iconic figures:

1. Promote passive-arousal in their followers.

2. Divert attention from and sap rersources of quiet dissent.

3. Bestow benefits on parasitical cohorts facing less risk.

4. Provide rewards to the iconic media industry.

5. Are formulaic to critique, condemn, laud, celebrate.

6. Foster comedy, ridicule, hostility, tragedy and fatuity.

7. Increase choice among oddballs.

8. Vicariouly soothe the troubled, head off psychopathic upheavals.

9. Enrage opportunistic investors in predecessors, successors and competitors.

10. Prod dogmatic slumberers awake, over-stimulate blood pressure, induce stroke.

11. Offer benign art to counter knotted pistols, personnel mine disfigurement, herds of migrants. rapist peacekeepers.

12. Most of all overlook sexual predation by Assange, confession to convict by Manning, entrapment by journalism by Snowden.
