The New Blue Fascism of Facebook.

leave a comment »

They used to say that Fascism in America would be wrapped in a flag and bearing a cross.

Add weird Facebook blue cameras to the mix, ostensibly to help you buy more crap you don’t need. If ever there was a metaphor for the rise of the Nerd Nazis then this is it.

It’s certainly a shame that the chief practitioner of the new techno-fascism is a Jew. But fascism is full of such ironies. The portly, distinctly non-Aryan Corporal, and the strutting stupidity of Benito Mussolini to name but two.

Mark Zuckerberg once told his ghostwriter “I’m not sure I can trust you anymore”. She promptly shipped out ( taking her stock stash with her ) and moved to rural Texas. But its the language that stands out. “Trust” and terror are not distant cousins in certain circles where power is as potent and uncompromising as it is in Fascism. When there is no longer trust, someone usually pays the price. In the past that meant death.

Now it can mean social media purdah. But maybe the Nerd Nazis will ultimately create some newly minted amoral twenty-somethings as their own private Stasi.
