THE SYNOPTICON: EXISTENCE vs. EXTINCTION
Music by Archie Cooper
Directed by Nathan Human
Synapses of the synopticon
The purpose of this montage is to demonstrate the many ways in which industrialization (as guided by a corrupt corporate dominion) will condemn humanity (as we know it) to an untimely extinction. A variety of variables will converge towards this end, be they intentionally orchastrated or not, and it will in part be facilitated by delegating the responsibility of regulating the system to the alienated members of the new planetary society. Subtley and unknowingly we will encourage one another into accepting this transition via synoptic surveillance, whether it be our naive faith in the faint remnants of virtue which the government retains to keep the private armies from storm trooping us in the night, now entirely co-opted by criminal oligopolies waiting to be set free into a post-modern anarchy born of co-opted shill movements and oathkeepers. In gratifying our desire to conform and win acceptance from other castrated minds we doom ourselves to certain death. This self-regulation will compliment the oppression of the pervasive hegemonic media grid and the marginalizing activities that allow corporate/ monetary injustice to persist. Our extinction will be supplemented with post-humans, those wealthy and priviledged enough to modify themselves biologically and cybernetically, and they will be equipped to endure this adverse future, while humanity is left behind like a stepping stone. The analogy to the synapses (and as expressed in part two of the montage) indicates that we are currently members of a diseased global mind, this is not to say we as human beings are cancerous, as all life could then be construed this way, rather it means that the pervasive attitude and negligence on behalf of the people who are capable of doing something but choose not to, is what characterizes this new world psychological disorder. Humans are not a cancer, the cancer is within us and among us. Its called greedy people who control every fucking corner of every material thing worth anything, covert networking, systemic censorship and oligopoly ensure that ideas like these never get their deserved attention, they supplement the void with profitable bandaid solutions, t-shirts and longwinded audiovisual mash-ups like the one below.
Everything is controlled, no one can be trusted, not even me.
THERE IS ONLY YOU!!!
