Das Dokument zeigt deutlich auf, dass es den Aktivisten nicht – wie oft von ihnen behauptet – um die Bewahrung eines Status quo geht, sondern dass Menschenrechte deutlich zurückgefahren werden sollen: Als Ziele benannt werden etwa die Abschaffung aller Gesetze zu Lebenspartnerschaften, gleichgeschlechtlichen Ehen und Adoptionen durch Homosexuelle – zugleich soll für den Erlass von Gesetzen zur Bestrafung von Homosexualität ("Anti-sodomy laws") und Bestrafung von "Homo-Propaganda" gekämpft werden.

"And this is how memes help people speak truths."
Go and read this excellent vivisection by Jay Owens!

"Yet, even as ‘authenticity’ as a claim and as an aesthetic feels outdated, deeper forms of ‘realness’ in our communications still persist. People are still seeking to communicate their deepest personal truths: their values, hopes and fears with each other. Through sharing media, we’re still creating community.

Nonetheless, the kind of truth in play is changing form: emotional and moral truths are in ascendance over straightforwardly factual claims. Truth becomes plural, and thereby highly contested"

"Today’s American fascist youth is neither the strapping Aryan jock-patriot nor the skinheaded, jackbooted punk: The fascist millennial is a pasty nerd watching shitty meme videos on YouTube, listening to EDM, and harassing black women on Twitter. Self-styled “nerds” are the core youth vanguard of crypto-populist fascist movements. And they are the ones most likely to seize the opportunities presented by the Trump presidency.
...
The nerd appeared in pop culture in the form of a smart but awkward, always well-meaning white boy irrationally persecuted by his implacable jock antagonists in order to subsume and mystify true social conflict — the ones around race, gender, class, and sexuality that shook the country in the 1960s and ’70s — into a spectacle of white male suffering. This was an effective strategy to sell tickets to white-flight middle-class suburbanites, as it described and mirrored their mostly white communities. With the hollowing out of urban centers, and the drastic poverty in nonwhite communities of the ’80s and ’90s, these suburban whites were virtually the only consumers with enough consistent spending money to garner Hollywood attention.
...
The threatened, slightly less attractive white male oppressed and opposed by a more mainstream, uptight, wealthy white man became a constant theme in the canonical youth films of ’80s Hollywood. This quickly evolved into the nerd-jock dichotomy
...
the key ideological gesture in all the films named here: the replacement of actual categories of social struggle and oppression with the concept of the jock-nerd struggle. The jock is forever cool, the nerd perennially oppressed. And revenge is always on the table and always justified. In the nerd’s very DNA is a mystification of black, queer, and feminist struggle: As a social character, the nerd exists to deny the significance (if not the existence) of race, class, and gender oppression."

"I see little use in trying to extrapolate out to what anonymous shitposters “really” mean ... I think the best approach is to cast off discussions of motives entirely, and focus instead on the impact of the behaviors. "That’s something we can know, and further, can situate within broader discourses of power—analyses that hold regardless of whether participants cry irony or not.""

"Warum also gibt es Debatten zurzeit vor allem, wenn sie von rechts angeschoben werden? Warum wird noch jede Messerattacke zum Staatsproblem gemacht, aber nicht die täglich stattfindenden Angriffe auf Flüchtlingsunterkünfte? Warum nennen sie bei der CSU den Antisemiten Orbán einen Freund, pochen aber auf das "jüdisch-christliche Erbe", sobald es gegen Muslime geht?
...
Die Reaktionen auf die "Erklärung 2018" machen deutlich, wie wenig das klassische konservative Milieu dem Angriff von rechts entgegenzusetzen hat. Zu beobachten ist aber auch, wie mit zwei läppischen Sätzen eine mediale Aufmerksamkeit erzeugt wird, die in keinem Verhältnis zur Substanz und Komplexität dessen steht, was diskutiert werden sollte, wenn es um die Grundlagen unserer Gesellschaft geht. Deprimierend ist die Oberflächlichkeit und Willfährigkeit der Debatte, die sich nach Akzenten wieder, ob gewollt oder nicht, ein Stück weit nach rechts verschiebt.

Es ist die Mitte, die die Rechte stark macht, die ideenlose, driftende Mitte, nicht die Linke. Es wäre an der Mitte, der konservativen Mitte, die Rechte mit emanzipatorischer und aufklärerischer Politik zu bekämpfen, anstatt sie zu kopieren. Es geht um diese Demokratie."

"At a minimum, Facebook has long needed an ombudsman’s office with real teeth and power: an institution within the company that can act as a check on its worst impulses and to protect its users. And it needs a lot more employees whose task is to keep the platform healthier. But what would truly be disruptive and innovative would be for Facebook to alter its business model. Such a change could come from within, or it could be driven by regulations on data retention and opaque, surveillance-based targeting—regulations that would make such practices less profitable or even forbidden.

Facebook... should finally allow truly independent researchers better (and secure, not reckless) access to the company’s data in order to investigate the true effects of the platform. Thus far, Facebook has not cooperated with independent researchers who want to study it. Such investigation would be essential to informing the kind of political discussion we need to have about the trade-offs inherent in how Facebook, and indeed all of social media, operate.

Even without that independent investigation, one thing is clear: Facebook’s sole sovereign is neither equipped to, nor should he be in a position to, make all these decisions by himself, and Facebook’s long reign of unaccountability should end."

Crucially, we’re looking to develop a feminism that is hospitable to difference – one that’s more capable of fostering solidarity without assuming sameness as a prerequisite – and we’re trying to think philosophically about what that might look like and think practically about how we could build it. In the book I talk about the generation of new kinds of support networks, and about xeno-hospitality as a commitment to forging alliances beyond the mere replication of the same. That to me is one important implication of the xeno in xenofeminism.

"Siri and Alexa’s personification as cis-feminine assistants has been fairly well entrenched in users minds, but continual reinvention and circulation through marketing and social media are necessary to maintain their social and monetary value. In other words, their celebrity allure.
...
Alexa glitching annoys us, it spoils the aura of her as our own digital Jeannie, with us as her benevolent master. “The glitch is the catalyst,” Russell reminds us, “not the error.” For vulnerable identities, “an error in a social system that has already been disturbed by economic, racial, social, sexual, and cultural stratification […] may not, in fact, be an error at all, but rather a much-needed erratum.”

“When a pop star or celebrity allures me,” as Steven Shaviro writes, “this means that he or she is someone to whom I respond in the mode of intimacy, even though I am not, and cannot ever be, actually intimate with him or her.” It’s in their allure that The Assistants most directly mirror pop stars, I think. “What I become obsessively aware of, therefore, is the figure’s distance from me, and the way that it baffles all my efforts to enter into any sort of relation with it.”"

"Gerade Linke machen sich keine Vorstellung davon, was ihre exotistische Verharmlosung Bayerns in diesem Landstrich anrichtet. Es gibt Zusammenhänge dort, die nicht weit entfernt sind von Scharia und Islamismus. Wer sich davon überzeugen möchte, soll den Bericht über den Missbrauchsskandal bei den Regensburger Domspatzen nachlesen, der so nur in Bayern stattfinden konnte, in Verhältnissen, in denen Politik, Religion und sozialer Sadismus aufs engste verquickt sind. Es gibt noch immer Lebensverhältnisse in Bayern, in denen es für einen schwulen Teenager einfacher ist, in den Freitod zu gehen, statt sich zu outen. Nicht zuletzt ist das Misstrauen gegen alles, was sich als geistig unabhängig, kritisch oder frei definiert, tief in die bayerische Alltagskultur eingeschrieben. "

"To say that Uber and Lyft are reinventing the bus is actually much more frighteningly accurate than detractors probably intend. The specter of the bus, it seems, always comes after the meteoric rise and subsequent crash of a new popular transportation technology — in this case, ride hailing as we know it. In its place we might find a new array of buses, privately and publicly owned, that will execute new and more precise means of segregation. And here we should think of “bus” not as a high-capacity vehicle making scheduled stops, but as a racialized transit mode that is stigmatized so that some will seek to escape it —a transportation system socially constructed to shame some users and enhance the value of consuming some other, more profitable option."

"Hartz IV habe, so sind sich mehrere Autor*innen einig, einen sogenannten Tafelboom ausgelöst. Dessen Folge sind 753 Tafeln im Jahr 2007, und heute mehr als 930. Allein deren Nutzung durch mehr als 1,5 Millionen Menschen sei ein Beleg für die kritischen Regelsätze von Hartz IV und das Problem der Ernährungsarmut in Deutschland. Sieht man von der nahezu flächendeckenden Ausbreitung der Tafeln ab, stünden diese auch für eine Devolution des deutschen Wohlfahrtsstaates und eine Delegation sozialstaatlicher Aufgaben an Ehrenamtliche."

"I think there is also sometimes a mistrust of the audience and a perception that they need the work to be presented to them in a familiar format in order to engage with it. A related problem is that there’s also (unsurprisingly) very little technical expertise in cultural institutions, especially from a curatorial perspective – it’s hard to find hybrid people who understand photography as both a technical and cultural language.

To take up your point about the fetishisation of photographs as objects, the nostalgia for the analogue in digital culture is something we directly addressed when we devoted our recent Geekender to the “Hyperanalogue”. I think the persistence of the object is both a product of a crisis of authorship felt keenly by a sector of the community, but also part of a wider desire to seek out allegedly ‘authentic’ forms of expression in an increasingly accelerated consumer culture."

"Die Foodora-Algorithmen organisieren nicht nur die Bestellungen, sondern protokollieren auch die Fahrer. »Alles wird mit GPS gemessen«, erklärt Benjamin Geißler: Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit, wie viel Zeit wir bei Kunden verbringen, wie lange es dauert, bis wir auf eine Bestellung reagieren«. Die Zeitvorgaben von Foodora seien dem Betriebsrat nicht bekannt, sagt Andi Dyhring. »Der Captain, der für dich verantwortlich ist, sagt dir, falls du zu langsam bist.« Foodora-Sprecher Pfeifer sagt, die Fahrer würden bei Antritt des Jobs darauf hingewiesen, dass Foodora »Pünktlichkeit zum Schichtbeginn, Zuverlässigkeit und Sorgfaltspflicht« erwarte. »Andere Parameter nennen wir aus betrieblichen Gründen nicht.«

Die Kriterien sind schwammig. Die Fahrer befürchten, dass sie gegen sie verwendet werden können. Im vergangenen August hat Foodora den Vertrag mit einem Betriebsratsmitglied nicht verlängert."

"Ganz am Anfang mag es mal eine gute Idee gewesen sein: Lebensmittel nicht wegschmeißen, sondern verteilen. Das klingt nett, das verstehen alle. In jedem anderen Land als diesem könnte diese Idee vielleicht funktionieren. In diesem unseren Land jedoch wird auch aus so einer harmlosen, lieben Idee ein Ungetüm, ein Schauplatz niederster Instinkte, ein ganzes Abbild der deutschen Gesellschaft im Kleinen. Noch im Kampf um Müll gibt es oben und unten, müssen sich die Braunhäutigen und Mandeläugigen hinten anstellen und doppelt so nett sein wie alle anderen.

Die Tafeln sind fester Bestandteil des Systems Hartz IV, man muss sie schon halbstaatlich nennen. Es gibt sie, wie es die Bahn gibt und die Post.

Wenn es nicht reicht, können Sie ja zu den Tafeln gehen, war ein Satz, den plötzlich viele Abhängige zu hören bekamen. So wurde ein Grundrecht teilprivatisiert

"The larger promise of Gorgon Stare, however, was a narrative one: Its capacity for total documentation implied that every event in the city could not just be reconstructed but fully and completely explained. Indeed, James Joyce and the U.S. military would seem to agree that the best way to make sense of the modern metropolis is to document even the most inconsequential details. Urban events as minor as a Dubliner out for an afternoon stroll—let alone something as catastrophic as a terrorist attack—can be rewound, studied, and rationally annotated. Gorgon Stare is Ulysses reimagined as a police operation: a complete, time-coded, searchable archive of a person’s every act."

"Given higher education’s reputation as a bastion of liberalism and political correctness, it’s no wonder that it’s seen as a ripe target for angry white men. To many Americans, we are, as one angry internet troll recently told me, responsible for producing the “social justice warriors” and “feminazis” who are supposedly destroying the world. In reality, “the university” in 2018 is mostly a constellation of underfunded, overextended public institutions that still serve mostly working-class and middle-class whites and smaller numbers of minorities, including some undocumented young people known as Dreamers. Those institutions rarely have the resources to target conservative students or brainwash students.

You could be forgiven for not imagining that university when people talk about liberal colleges and coddled professors. We do not appear often in elite media, which tends to focus on the fringiest and most outrageous goings-on at elite universities. But even elite institutions are not nearly as radical as the alt-right believes. They are, if anything, the finishing schools for conservative economics, social science and social policy. A handful of gender studies courses could not begin to check the power of an economics department or a business school at any university in the U.S. The college down the street from most Americans is a conservative institution that is sensitive to the pluralist needs of the students they serve because its economic viability depends on it.

Of course, racism does not need logic. White racist organizations are flourishing in the space between perception and fact, and in that space, the university is the mecca for aggrieved white masculinity to reassert its dominance."

Eribon: "Es ist eine Tatsache, dass die Probleme der Unterschicht in den Hintergrund gedrängt wurden. Sie sind nicht aus der Realität, aber bis zu einem gewissen Grad aus dem Diskurs verschwunden, besonders aus dem Diskurs der Linken. Aber daran ist weder der Feminismus noch die Homosexuellen-Bewegung schuld. Der Grund dafür ist die Annäherung zwischen den sozialdemokratischen Parteien und der neokonservativen Rechten. Es wäre doch absurd zu behaupten, das Problem der SPD oder des französischen Parti Socialiste sei der Feminismus. Das Problem ist der Neoliberalismus der heutigen Linken, die Tatsache, dass die Linke nicht mehr links ist.
...
Man könnte glauben, die Linke wolle die Schwachen vor der Brutalität wirtschaftlicher Zwänge schützen und ihnen im Übrigen die Freiheit geben, so zu leben, wie sie wollen. Aber es ist das Gegenteil der Fall: Die heutige Linke ist gesellschaftspolitisch konservativ, autoritär und wirtschaftspolitisch liberal."

"Since then, people who rely on Facebook for eyeballs (like journalists) have been nervously trying to figure out what this change means — is “meaningful engagement” just shorthand for comments? Well, they should just ask me, because I’ve figured it all out. And I’m using this to torture my friends.

Presumably because of this latest algorithm shift, my post stayed at the top of people’s feeds — even though part of the new change was supposed to lead people away from passively consuming content (aka watching videos and scrolling through memes), and what I shared was exactly an example of the kind of passive content Facebook wants you to consume less of. My post still broke through, thanks to its ability to goad my friends into angrily commenting. Facebook is rewarding me for pissing my friends off, and its new thirst for comments seems to have driven itself into a loop that won’t let my friends free from the grasp of a piece of content that they actually hate."

As fake news proliferation shows, journalism’s reliance on ad-financed business model represents a bug for a better informed society, one that not coincidentally represents a feature from the perspective of the advertisers it serves.

"It’s common in journalism to criticize corporations when they make unpopular decisions without examining deeper causes. Digressions are attributed to idiosyncrasies of executive personality or to a kind of corporate peer pressure. Industry financial and strategic analysts may similarly opt to omit larger social forces too, but are more likely to recognize corporate actions as functional. In contrast to journalism that treats corporate missteps as nefarious or accidental, industry analysis can avoid presenting reality in an ideal way."
