Improvisation Blog: Understanding Inauthenticity and Technology

November 9, 2011

Via Scoop.itMore … or less!

What is wrong with this is the lack of individuation, of authenticity, of creativity and freedom. It is characterised by slavery to the ‘communications machine’ that is the modern world. The communications machine offers that “if you push the right buttons, you will be ok”. Speech acts, emails, telephone conversations, reports and accounts may fly by with the best practices of Fromm’s cybernetic religion. But those who submit forget they are lost, and with their loss is a broader human loss – not just in the people they shaft on their way to success, but in the real good that they don’t do, and the love that they don’t show either for the world or for themselves.   (via @pgsimoes)
