Very clear and spot-on interview with Peter Lamborn Wilson on what he calls the Technopathocracy of modern society: complete disconnection, lack of community and Internet-mediated insanity, and the Intentional Community as the solution. Right on. He makes the incredibly salient point that “dropping out” of Internet culture now is the same as “dropping out” of the mainstream in the 60s.I was introduced to PLW by a photography critic i had met, while i was looking for an unbiased person, totally unfamiliar with my work, to write an essay for my book Recognize. Since then I discovered this man who always has an interesting opinion on things.
