Gender and racial discrimination, surveillance, exploitation and so forth are only effects. The real problem is – that it is possible to suppress the people by false Science or false descriptions of the world – that supports Might Is Right. Or like this. We are not genuine citizens.

The End in Two Versions: Brittsommar´s The Machine Stops and The Idea of Productivity Has Transformed




"The Painter" is off the forthcoming Brittsommar album, The Machine Stops.

Brittsommar gives us the end in a perfect lucid Wagnerian fashion.

However the end is not the end of the machine; but the very end of the perspective to consider that humans are like machines. It´s about the End of The Western Mindset.

BBC´s Peter Day, gives the same message, in a different perspective,  in two sections of his World of Business show.

Day explains, what is usually hidden by the political élite; the very idea of productivity has changed. If the political class stick to facts - everything must change - the so called democracy and science must turn to the real stuff.

And by the way. The ongoing financial crisis began with to make up - for the missing productivity - that the current construction of our world needs to work.

Therefore what Day explains, so great, is extremely vital to grasp.
