Ruins of Bureaucracy 1

RIP Mr. Swartz. American’t didn’t invent interwebnets. Nor did it invent non-steam-driven horse-n-buggies. And it most certainly didn’t invent the lie of the mind. But what American’t did invent is the be-like-me-or-be-not, the my-way-or-the-highway, among many other authoritarian accolades. And now we all sit (t)here and don’t think much about freedom. No. Indeed. We think not about freedom. But Mr Swartz did. And he was so young.

Rant on.
