Geoff Cox: Democracy 2.0: Les Liens Invisibles

Geoff Cox discusses social media and its effect on the democracy concept. "Today the enemy is not called Empire or Capital. It's called Democracy." (Badiou)

Seppukoo, the antithesis of Facebook, perform suicide or unfriending yourself from a social network. "The production of subjectivity ceases to be only an instrument of social control ... and becomes directly productive, beacuse the goal of our postindustrial society is to construct the consumer/communicator - and to construct it as 'active.'" (Lazzarato) "Discover the new click-democracy!" The subjectivities created in this type of contexts. Example: www.repetitionr.com.
