When the levee broke, instead of acknowledging errors and working to address them as a community, Europe’s elites — its politicians and civil servants, its bankers and financiers — deflected the blame in the worst possible way. They turned a systemic problem of financial architecture into a dispute between European nations. The brought back the very ghosts their predecessors spent half a century trying to dispell. Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame.

Equality before the law is key to any democracy. Here’s where [the idea that different laws apply in the digital than in the physical sphere] is problematic. It claims a different, more liberal ruleset for skilled, tech-savvy people.

[It] has created an environment where the idea of government and with it often the ideas of democracy have been put up for debate to be replaced with … well … not much: Software that skilled people can use to defend themselves against other skilled people who might have even better software.

In einer Postdemokratie richtet sich die Politik nach der Berichterstattung. Um Politik zu gestalten kann man also zuerst Nachrichten machen. Das politische System reagiert dann darauf.
