On Democracy

The crisis of current economy struggling with a political lack of control (and understanding) of new emerging systems from the Third Industrial Revolution seems to make the point that democracy is merely a concept not a reality.

Politics is now made by those, like Google, that invest on understanding the new hybrid real by producing ‘learning machines‘, that can trigger controlled random data.

To open a Facebook page or use Twitter is not the point of the 2.0 society.

It seems to me that we are constrained within a space created by those that pretend to entertain us through technology – triggering consumerist culture, desire and interests (TED for instance) and those that need these forms of entertainment to define a bottom up control society, isn’t it an inverted form of politics?
