re: uspol, culture war 

@drwho This is a good article and I agree with a lot of Rushkoff's take here.

My theoretical research follows a similar line of thinking:

In a social media environment attenuated for the flourishing of alternate reality belief systems, trying to counter those alternate realities through a textual reading of the contents of those beliefs is doomed to failure.

So we have to drop down to a lower layer and try understand the systemic mechanisms, to reveal the cybernetic socio-bio-media-informational flows underlying the emergence and programming of beliefs; with the aim of deploying systemic interventions.
