Frightening indeed. Thanks to Andreas for uncovering this (how many 
people on nettiume are subs to/ are following its '-ann' site?)
It all reminded me my 'Hack the State' residency in Sheffield's Access

Orban, Kaczyński are indeed accelerationist, but unaware of it, 
exercising power in accelerationist times. Many have called them not 
traditionalists, but hyper-modernists - and so 'the Donald' and 'la 
Marine' 5or even our own -NL- 'hydrogen-peroxided' one ...)
