Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All

The weekend's civility debate ends with the civility of upholding Trump's fascist Muslim ban by the Supreme Court lead by the Trump appointee stolen with such civility by Mitch McConnell from President Obama. Civility demanded from fascists is cheerful acquiescence to their lawlessness and murderousness. Sure, innocent people will die, sure, lives that could have been devoted to enriching our culture and collaborating in the solution of our shared problems will be blighted by cruelty and isolation and waste and misery instead, sure, science is denied on which we depend for our survival, sure, wealth will further concentrate among our corrupt and unscrupulous "betters" as we starve and struggle, but we must serve our killers at our restaurants with a smile on our face and a song in our hearts lest we be scolded for a lack of civility. And, yeah, I voted for Hillary because I knew this was the alternative and if you didn't you are an active collaborator in the murder of innocents. Fuck civility and fuck you.
