Re: <nettime> Conversion disorder of the left

I don't think that this list of fears justifies bothering to run the country. There is not enough money in all of that together, those are all small incremental operations (and the morality thing will be the cost center, not the profit one.) Plus there would be no desperate attacks on the new administration if this was the case - this would be sticking with the old program (except morality - but no one in the ruling circles gives a flying f*ck about about the morality issues - that's bone to be thrown to the masses and effects exploited.)

It's more likely that the shift will involve channeling revenue (tax) into domains that felt neglected in the past few decades and switch the set of the people at the top of the hierarchy.

    seriously, the plan to privatize public land, the plan to drill and
