Episode no.13 : Boycott Fracky World
June21 20:00 (CET)
via Smoo Bar
1. Fracky World
This news is stirring up some debate about what to do now in the ubiquitous surveillance krapitalist domains :
Nothing exaclty new, Zuckerborg has been enabling this shit all along. One of our first really really gruesome views of its escalating level of insidiousness was back when George Bush was invited to FB HQ to plug his new post-prez auto-bio book... (year?) ... But of course we already new it was a shithole concept and a threatening new weaponizing of mass comm from its very outset. We just didnt have the term Surveillance Capitalism yet.
If FB is not dealt with before Nov. ... it is a very good chance that Trump will manage to steal another election. It has been pointed out that these platforms are the primary engines of his campaign strategies.

Sunday, JUNE 14 , 2020 Globalist Radio Kit Episode no.11 : “Progress Towards What?!” LIVE 20:00 - 23:00h ( CET ) https://globalista.openradio.in/
Globalista Radio Kit ( GRK ) is a pop-up radio shop which began icecasting ( streaming ) as the Corona Pandemic kicked in, quarantines began and public space became restricted. As things begin slowly re-opening, we continue our programs in order to create discussions about all our current situations and dramatic changes that are unfolding all around us. Most crucially we wish to inform and inspire our communities in order to be an active force in shaping our daily lives, social interactions, autonomy and whatever comes next.
This week we are excited to announce that we will set up at a new partner location. The Smoobar in Friedrichshain. http://smoobarcafe.com/
Sundays are flea market days at Boxhagenerplatz. And the streets surrounding the square will be closed to traffic. This presents an interesting location to experiment and engage the public in our discussions, and supporting local merchant businesses + livelihoods.
In this episode, we would like to examine a few films, and a number of topics.
Sorry To Bother You, Boots Riley ( 2018 )
Picnic on the Grass, Jean Renoir ( 1959 )
The Great Silence ( short,1970s ) etc.
We - the XLterrestrials - have been getting into quite a few debates + on-the-ground struggles over the years regarding the directions humans have been steering “spaceship earth” ( a term from Buckminster Fuller ). Our path as a species ( and an increasingly homogenous society ) has been looking pretty grim for some time. We are, to be brief, in pretty deep shit. Big changes are not just on the horizon, they are erupting in real time. Not to sound like a rabid Milton Friedman carpetbagging krapitalist, but this actually does present an unusual moment of grand opportunities. From a grassroots perspective, this is our chance to ditch all of the worst aspects of exploitative + destructive + racist systems that have emerged to mangle the “good nature” that humans can possess + practice when the gardens of life are more like a commons for all to nurture and be nurtured. But also realistically, the damage that has been done to our planet is severe, and we will need to work together to repair + detourn this epic-scale mess ! So let’s analyze and navigate in a climate of upgraded collective intelligences.
In addition to our main themes, we also will be randomly discussing some recent news items throughout the evening, which may become a list of "chapters" or "reports" in the program including the planet-killing machine that is global (corporate) agriculture, the racist history/future of amerikkka, and the murky world of hackers-for-hire.
To follow the development of our topics for all episodes, and participate in the discussions and research gathering, and sharing of resources. Join us on the Chaos Pad, open 24/7 : https://pads.ccc.de/grk

and meanwhile we will continue to add some resource LINKS:
like this incredible one about 5G from Rhizomatica:
This episode is likely a continuation of our themes about this neufeudalism depiction of our current socio-economic and technodystopian mess...
Plus we will continue with another round of sci-fi soundtracks, including some the Afrofuturism genius of Sun Ra... and some more contemporary descendents like Moor Mother.
And trying to stay on top of the corona times analysis, we found some excellent likes from the Wu Ming collective:

5. the Bubonic Merry-Go-Rounds ... Frank Snowden on the history of medicine and a scholar on fascism...
too much to handle in one show, but we will experiment with the chaos...
Wark / Verso promo interview
the long version (20?min) https://invidio.us/watch?v=eiV0wS_in-4
Astra Taylor"s The People's Platform ( 2014 )
Perhaps as a dual theme:
Analyzing the " materialist ideology " that has determined the course of the scienceS ... and thus our technologically-dominant 4th industrial revolution now under way.
Ruper Sheldrake's book The Science Delusion ( or Science Set Free , title of the US version to avoid that it would be seen as a rightwing tract that was anti-evolution and anti-climate change ) he skillfully makes clear how a particlar ideological understanding of Nature is part of the methodology of our techno-colonial subjugation, whereby living organisms are turned into biological machines, and other "languages" of being, experiences and possibilities of other sciences are ruled out.
And old review of his 2012 book:
( not a science writer, but a decent overview of the controversies )
From the final chapter:
The Sciences are entering a new phase. The materialist ideology that has ruled them since the 19th century is out of date. All ten of its essential doctrines have been superceded. The authoritarian structure of the sciences, the illusions of objectivity and the fantasies of omniscience have all outlived their usefuleness.
The sciences will have to change for another reason too: they are now global. Mechanistic science and the materialist ideology grew up in Europe, and were strongly influenced by the religious disputes that obsessed Europeans from the 19th c. onwards. But these preoccupations are alien to the cultures and traditions in many other parts of the world.
... the sciences as (also) taught in Asia, Africa, the islamic countries and elsewhere are still packaged in an ideology shaped by their European past. Materialism gains its persuasive power from the technological applications of science. But the sucesses of these applications do not prove this IDEOLOGY is true.
Excerpt from Chapter 2:
The meachanistic theory is based on the metaphor of the machine. But it is only a metaphor. LIVING ORGANISMS provide better metaphors for organised systems at all levels of complexity, including molecules, plants, and societies of animals, allof which are organized in a series of inclusive levels, in which the whole at each level is more than the sum of its parts, which are themselves whole at a lower level. Even the most ardent defenders of the mechanistic theory SMUGGLE purposive principles into living organisms in the form of the selfish gene or genetic programs. In the light of the Big Bang theory, the entire universe is more like a growing, developing organism than a machine slowly running out of steam.
to be cont.
PART 3 ?!
And if we are crazy enough, it mght make sense to put the Jododorowsky Jodoverse into the mix...
His collaborations with the graphic novel worlds to make The Techno-Priests could be very useful here.
bubonic plague, measels, small pox, measels, yellow fever, and the Haitian Revolution !

THE MUSIK :
Just as we sat down to hunt for Xtra music for 2nite's GRK themes , our comrade dj Elmo Lewis posted a tribute to Peter Thomas who died a couple days ago, the composer for Raumpatrouille and many soundtracks. Since the river theme worked so good for last week"s show, to have a focus... NOW hunting music for....... Sci-fi FiLMS and TV ! ! ! ... and all sci-fi related music !
And if anyone can find a good oline version of Mr Bungle's cover of Thomas "Love in Space" ... we might have a prize for YOU !

++ 12.5.2020 : GRK Episode #6: The Hyper-Industrialized Rivers of No Return ?! ...
20:00 ( CET ) til late
1. songs about rivers
2. topics about whether we can GO BACK to an existence in balance with nature, or are we headed ever deeper into an anthropocenic and man-made mess, a technodystopian nightmare, a hyper-industrialized slavery to feed the machines ... and accelerate the plunder of earth ?
The bullshit cliches of "we can't go back", assumes that we are on a path towards progress. But if any human life form walks into a burning theater, there is clearly only a couple of intelligent responses: to either put out the fire or to exit as quickly as possible !
Naomi Klein's article on the SCREEN NEW DEAL
tells alot about what we are facing as corporate and state tech go headlong down the gruesome + very predictable trails of control, control, control... the virus of control !
more thoughts, feedback, resources...
to be cont.
<------ (Add YOUR IDEAS + Links)
Peter Gabriel - Washing of the Water
Recently the XLt Analysts got into some debates as to whether China is ALSO going down an extremely problematic path of destroying environments + habitats around the world to feed their needs/addictions for economic growth, enegry and resource extraction for all the consumer goods that they produce for the world markets. And they may have the most ambitious global development + moderization + infrasturcture projects around the world. And are already building and/or proposing a vast number of ( hydro-electric ) dam projects - some the largest - of any other international investor.
The positive news is that they are investing in the most ambitious green innovation projects of any other G20 country. And their economic + development strategies could possibly liberate us all from the Krapitalism OS.
BUT, if we wish to avoid a total eco collapse, perhaps this is all heading in the wrong direction. Will China also need to change its vision for the future ?! Is Hyper-industrialization A RIVER OF NO RETURN that will lead to irreparable ecological damage + a permanent technodystopia... or worse, an accelerated mass extinction that threatens a tipping point into planetary dead zones, a globally cooked environment, desertification, and centuries of a new dark age of machine-lands ruled by patriarchal MAN-made mutant cultures ?!
What good is a marxist ( technological ) revolution if we are all TOAST in 20-30 years ?! Of course we all know that's where the current dominating imperialist OS will lead us... BUT maybe we need to rethink our exits... It's certianly not merely a technological fix that will get us to an inhabitable balance ! Is there even any possibility of returning to a world where (intelligent?) + ( non-anthropocentric ) "Nature" is a guiding structure for life.
XLterrestrials suspect any "Green New Deal" that pumps out this "4th Industrial Revolution" shit ( 5G, AI, IOT, Total Cybernetic Immersion, Algo Governance + Surveillance State Expansionism, corporate tech overlords, etc. ) we can probably expect a variety of grueling dystopian outcomes !
EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER PLEA:
This is a rough beginning for an upcoming XLT analysis text...
unfortunately our XLterrestrials.org blog is DOWN, and we need to rescue it ! We need about 300$ to secure our domain and pay up on our bills. ( from +10 years of hosting, which was provided by Possible Worlds, long story, but that's the short version )
We may lose control of the domain in June, if not taken care of.

we hope, studio is still undergoing some construction and things may be delayed.
From " falttening in the truth " we got to a funny picture of the 2 YipYIP Muppet characters ( ( Xtra terretsrials? ) made into an image re: the flat earth conspiracy theories...
And it would be great to segway to the "conspiracy theories" that help "flatten truths " ...
And coincidentally we came to a rare good article about the C-theories called "Beneath C-theries, the class war "
And in the MUSIC dept.
R.I.P. Dave Greenfield...

"Tomorrow it's Mayday: the day on which we celebrate the rich and diverse history of social struggle, and commemorate those who devoted their lives to this struggle. This year also marks the 75th anniversary of the defeat of several fascist states in Europe. It is often forgotten that many socialists, communists, and anarchists significantly contributed to this victory. We must remind ourselves that their struggle for equality and solidarity, and the fight against capitalism and the extreme right, today is no less important than ever before. It is not easy to celebrate Mayday in times of a pandemic. But in an attempt to contribute to this (and inspired by some Flemish comrades), I made this home recording of a song that can be heard everywhere in the streets of Italy this week. " - Mathijs van de Sande}

Thx for the Chaos Pad from the Openradio + Stamm team !
Astra Taylor article
"There is no such thing as a natural disaster. In earthquakes the architecture fails. If you’re out in a grassy meadow, it doesn’t matter how big the earthquake is: it might knock you down, but if nothing falls on top of you and nothing catches fire from broken gas mains or power lines, then you’re probably okay. Architecture is the first casualty of earthquakes, and human beings under the architecture are the casualties of the architecture. Even with a wholly natural disaster, whatever that might be—a tsunami, maybe—who gets help, who has resources to rebuild, who is treated as a threat or a malingerer—those are not natural but social phenomena. With Katrina you need to talk about the role of climate change in making the hurricane; of the crappy levees built by the US Army Corps of Engineers and not adequately maintained; of the lack of evacuation resources for the poor; of the demonization of those left behind; of the transformation of New Orleans into a prison-city preventing evacuation … nothing could be less natural. The natural disaster was the least of what happened to the people of New Orleans, if not the rest of the Gulf, that week." https://bombmagazine.org/articles/rebecca-solnit/
