💬 Exit Option Democracy

Replied to Exit Option Democracy by Doug Belshaw (Thought Shrapnel)

What I do accept, though, is that Vertesi’s findings show that ‘exit democracy’ isn’t really an option here, so the world of technology isn’t really democratic. My takeaway from all this, and the reason for my pragmatic approach this year, is that it’s up to governments to do something about all this.

Zuboff’s book sounds interesting. Having just finished Cory Doctorow’s Walkaway, I have been listening to quite a few interviews associated with the book. One of the messages which he argues for is hopefulness. I think that an informed pragmaticism is all we can wish for. This is what I tried to capture in my post.
