Do you have a Cisco Wireless Router? Are you thinking of buying one? Bear this in mind:

The [law]suit claims that additional Cisco marketing presentations prove that it promoted its technology as being capable of taking aim at dissident groups. In one marketing slide, the goals of the Golden Shield are described as to “douzheng evil Falun Gong cult and other hostile elements.” Douzheng is a Chinese term used to describe the persecution of undesirable groups. It was widely used by the Communist Party in the Cultural Revolution.

  1. Do you want to go back to living your life under the whip of your feudal God-King Dalai Lama, boy? Have you forgotten what that was like already?

    Do you want to go back to living your life under the steady rhythms, slow stretches, and enlightened breathing techniques of your most serene choreographer God-King Li Hongzhi? Feeling nostalgic in your middle age?

    Do you want to go back to living your life under the relational aesthetics of your white cube gallery God-King Weiwei? Are you missing that so soon?

    Well I’m sure as shit not.

    I have seen the future and the future is a Foxconn factory in the Pearl River Delta bigger than God. It has loyal soldiers of the PLA posted outside the gates and white-coated “efficiency nurses” around every other corner. “What this future does not recognise is not the trade union itself, but the need to have a trade union.”
