While predicting the end of exploitive civilization (a welcome development) is a bit sanguine, we may as well try. Poor Knut, the cute polar bear cub has not only lost his mother, but is now to be exploited by the mother$@%#^* 33rd G8.

    Hey, I’ll be in Berlin on th 8th! I’m sure there’ll be demonstrations as well. Attac is pretty media, web 2.0 savvy, huh? Very nice.

    Attac seems very web 2.0 savvy, really quite sharp. One advantage of leftist politics is that we’re simply sexier than the right. I didn’t know until today that the G8 was headed your way. If you attend any of the demonstrations I hope you’ll take pictures!! Wish I had the funds to visit myself. I imagine German prisons are lovely in the spring. 😉

    The German detainment industry is in the process of being privatized, so definitely worthwhile checking out. Right now, I am roughly a 1000km train ride away from Heiligendamm (which is a distance that us Old Europeans consider almost out of sight, out of mind). And Berlin should be between 100 and 200k away from H. – but what I can probably expect is that everybody is returning to B. on Friday 8th. I’ll have my camera ready!

    That’s great, thanks! In the US we go 1000m to find a Starbucks, or if you’re like me, 2000m to find something fair trade.

    But seriously, the G8 loves these remote cities where there’s less chance of the crowds a more central location would draw. The next meeting is scheduled to be held in Atlantis.

    Should tell the master class something when they need to hide to have a meeting. It certainly tells the rest of us all we need to know about whose interests they represent.
