The all new labored attempt of the vertical - “name” based, caste driven, owned by self-believing-powerful connected men, authoritarian and focused on a last century vision — ‘’information”,

given as “truth” to the masses deliberately kept in ignorance —

the all new labored attempt — we say — to recycle itself in the age of horizontal and democratic (yes, even in the sense of chaotic) information, based on the “anyone”, on equality and real-time exchange.

The classic empty the ocean with a bucket

The masters of “professional knowledge”, those pedantic and obliging and overeating and revered so-called “big names” — asking refuge in the temple of the unsigned people, among the angry and the hungry that do not revere anyone anymore.

The spectacular parade of the lords of the report that try to sneak into the chatter of what I cooked today

It’s a bug in the system that will be clearly resolved, someway.

That’s not the solution. Quite the contrary. But meanwhile they sell

dearly their skin. Business as usual.

And it rains …
