Fuck off, Google! On Marxism & cybernetics

What are the alternatives to the oppressive regime we have and the dystopia the developing technologies can bring?

We can say that the alternative to the dystopia of high-technology capitalism has to be some reinvented form of communism, which may impose a high-tech communism, but may be a communism which in certain ways frees people from the same technological dependencies. But my answer is ‘Fuck off Google!’

Often the new technologies are associated with anti-capitalist potential (free copying of information, 3D-printers, etc). Does it make sense? How far can such grassroot technological erosion of capitalism go without conscious revolutionary action?

Not very far.”
