Cover Quote: June 2002

Currently I view the Net/Web as a kind of social implosion or catastrophe. I hate and fear it as the symbolic engine of a kind of a terminal alienation, and as a perfect mirror of Global Capital. Anarchists were fascinated by the Net because borders seemed not to exist for it. But the same could be said for the “Free Market” of neo-liberalism. A world without borders turns out to be even more oppressive in some ways than the old model. As Bob Dylan said, “Everybody wants you to be just like them.” And now, thanks to the wonders of post-modern technology, you will be.
