Google-led “Revolution” in Egypt? (NYT 11/2/11)

Posted in Uncategorized by ce399 on 16/02/2011

“Egypt is going to be a fully democratic state,” said Wael Ghonim, the Google executive who helped organize the youth-led protests and became one of the movement’s most prominent spokesmen. “You will be impressed.”

Use Scroogle, Not Google!

    A revolution! Led by an executive employed by a totalitarian trans-national corporation whose initial seed-money came from Pentagon venture capital!? A revolution created or led by Google? Something out of a William Gibson science fiction novel. Corporate-led insurrections and revolutions! Che Guevara is rolling in his grave! Are we to be deceived into believing that trans-national corporations are not totalitarian but rather democratic entities and a force for liberation in the world? Of course, anyone who wears black and uses a laptop or iPad is a radical socialist or anarchist – especially if you’re a Google employee. Image is everything to the vapid and inane Digerati. Are we traumatized and disassociating yet?

    Thomas L. Friedman of the NYT op-ed section is supportive of the events in Egypt and used them as an opportunity to engage in further Jewish-supremacist/Orientalist posturing. I can’t wait for a more virulent and technocratic from of neoliberalism to emerge in Egypt – it will be really “impressive -” especially if you’re a Google executive.

    Dim-witted American “liberals” just love spectacle for spectacles sake. Is there a “Drop Dead” app? The truth hurts, but ignorance kills. Ignorance and the arrogance of affluence have killed the “liberal class.”

    Notice also la différence in corporate media reactions to uprisings in Greece versus Egypt.
