Okay, so I tried to write this post-based pondering of the Wikileaks happening before my mid-day nap (Lawd, I feel like a freaking toddler!!), but I suspect Microsoft Word is in partnership with and/or under attack from Anonymous from the Data Army ‘cause it crashed on a bitch twice and didn’t save a damn bit of what I wrote.
A message from the shadowlands?
Or could it be The Man?!?
Here’s hoping the third time is the charm!
Caution - if you’ve never read Dune or seen the cheesy 1984 movie version, this post might not make a lick of sense.
I’ve been trying to catch up on all things Wikileaks. There’s a lot to sort through and it’s taking me more time than I expected, but I’ve arrived at one conclusion – this reminds a bitch of the plot of Dune.
Oh come on!
Data is the Spice, the overly digitized tech addicted west is the Known Universe, western coalitions are the Spacing Guild…um, Julian Assange is Paul...and so forth and so on.
There’s even talk of plots and faux allegiances forged to silence opposition and keep the Spice…um, data…in the hands of the few!
A bitch is holding out judgment on this shit for now.
Catch that knee, lest thee fell thy neighbor!
I’m using the Ellsberg test for this shit…and, even though Ellsberg feels this is Ellsbergian, I'm still wading through what is known and what is bullshit.
I love a good conspiracy theory real time thriller against The Man as much as the next person…but so far all I’ve seen is schadenfreudal joy inducing embarrassing information confirming that government is doing exactly what I suspected government was doing out in the known world.
That doesn’t mean that I won’t ultimately determine that this happening is Ellsbergian, it just means I’m still doing my homework.
Pause…sip yummified Sun Drop soda pop…continue.
Having said that, I’d like to formally declare myself in a neutral holding pattern for the moment and thus worthy of a Walk On By pass from the Data Army.
