a Visionary's Report: on "our" "Information Society" (with art)

With some radical new art (inspired while hanging out in the 'hood recently--see "a visionary's report: beyond fear: stretchings and practicings around pdx" in the feature section), our visionary shares some critical thinking and some neat visionary ideas!

News I heard recently has been supporting the mainline hype about "our" society now being "an information society." You've heard it before. In reality, it's about "in formation", or disparate groups being formed more streamlinededly into formations which are usually *not* of the people's (so utilized) interests. Nor, for that matter, those who are to do the shepherding. Oh, they BELIEVE they are working within their "interests" but the reality, proved in corporate cult-ure over and over is truly more about war method than human values method.

As cynical as everyone is trained to become, this state of affairs runs rampant, with only a few fools like me (this artist/" visionary") apparently even questioning...

For us, fully marginalized and perhaps soon to be under concerted attack (from whichever direction), speaking such truths is mostly a spiritual path way, so we plug away anyway...

Feel free to publish this and other art of mine where-ever you like, as it is "anti-copyright". Indigenous folks the world over are particularly welcome.

In human solidarity,

a. visionary
