>>452637>How do we create a "People's Culture" so to speak, from the belly of the beast, and how do we make it work?
There is plenty "people's culture" the problem is how do you distribute it. You have to come up with a distribution method that is usable for people that are not very tech-savvy, it has to be cheap enough to be upheld at low cost, and it has to survive the attacks of the bourgeoisie. Every ruling class wants it's ideas to be the dominant ideas of society. They are attempting to form a "neoliberal church" (you come up with a better term) that strives for a whitelist model of censorship. (If it's not the official doctrine it's gone), something like that hasn't existed since the dark ages when the church was the most powerful institution. The Soviet Union which has a reputation for having been censorious, "only" used a blacklist model of censorship where everything was allowed unless it was too critical of the central government. I'm not attempting to rehabilitate the Soviet model of information control. I'm just pointing out that if the neoliberals get their way they are going to make the Soviet system look Hobbesian.
The internet does liberate people from all that censorship but the price for entry is having a very high level of technical skills. A free internet would still have a problem that is not even talked about anymore, You still need to invent the "people's curation">>452639>how do you get people to read
I think that we have to structure Marxist theory like it's a mental exercise program against attention deficit. 3 minute reading snippets, than 5 minutes , until people can read for an hour at a time.>worked and milked to death
so the first stage of class struggle has to be about reducing the rate of exploitation.
