JOHN STEPPLING


What Experience Was

I want to note that what is different today, and maybe significantly so, is that this is age of the internet, of social media and big data mining. And I believe that the western hegemonic domination of internet platforms has provided a new means to control propaganda but the technology itself has played a role in the manufacturing of a of particular western delusion in its users and audience. It is also, at the same time, manufacturing a new kind of delusional ruling class, and this tiny strata of extreme wealth is more psychologically deformed than any Caligula or Ludwig in history. Imagine the rise of the Third Reich in the age of social media.
