making-of-trump [6]COMMENT: In time, we will be shar­ing thoughts con­cern­ing the dis­as­ter which was con­sum­mat­ed on Tues­day evening. Long [7] in the mak­ing, this deba­cle embod­ies what we warned about in the con­clu­sion of Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Show M11 [8], record­ed in May of 1980, and reprised in FTR #511 [9] in 2005–give this [10] a lis­ten.

The com­men­tary so far has been pre­dictable: the usu­al sus­pects doing the usu­al things, from the so-called pro­gres­sive sec­tor lament­ing that Saint Bernard (Sanders) did­n’t get the nom­i­na­tion, assert­ing that he would have won and jab­ber­ing mind­less­ly about the need for “grass roots orga­niz­ing” and “pop­ulist out­reach.”  Oba­ma and the Dems are say­ing we must “uni­fy” and that we are all Amer­i­can (patri­ots.)

Let Oba­ma unite with the Trumpenkampfver­bande if he so desires. We’ll pass, thank you.

In weeks to come Mr. Emory will be doing a num­ber of pro­grams about David Cay John­ston’s con­cise, insight­ful biog­ra­phy of Don­ald Trump–The Mak­ing of Don­ald Trump [11].

In the mean­time, we emphat­i­cal­ly sug­gest that peo­ple get the book and read it. 

We also note the role of the fas­cist Wik­iLeaks [12]in throw­ing this elec­tion. This is a clas­sic exam­ple of  tech­no­crat­ic fas­cism in action. David Golum­bia stat­ed in a sem­i­nal post [13]: “. . . . Such tech­no­cratic beliefs are wide­spread in our world today, espe­cially in the enclaves of dig­i­tal enthu­si­asts, whether or not they are part of the giant cor­po­rate-dig­i­tal leviathan. Hack­ers (“civic,” “eth­i­cal,” “white” and “black” hat alike), hack­tivists, Wik­iLeaks fans [and Julian Assange et al–D. E.], Anony­mous “mem­bers,” even Edward Snow­den him­self walk hand-in-hand with Face­book and Google in telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con­tribute to the polit­i­cal world, but that the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it: the polit­i­cal world is bro­ken, they appear to think (right­ly, at least in part), and the solu­tion to that, they think (wrong­ly, at least for the most part), is for pro­gram­mers to take polit­i­cal mat­ters into their own hands. . .”
