Genocide 2.0
« on: October 15, 2012, 07:58:44 pm »
(I just felt like writing something, and here it is.)

A few years (15? 20?) into the future. Unnamed developing African country. Internet access has become commonplace. All citizens are equipped with electronic ID tags. After years of stable economic growth, the economy stagnates. People look for scapegoats, ethnic conflict flares up.

So you kinda like your neighbor, but he's a *insert ethnic group* and you're not. Understandably, you wouldn't want to kill the cockroach personally. Okay. That doesn't make you a traitor or a weak man in our eyes. Well... just a little. But we have a solution to that! Just donate a few bucks to our Kickstarter project!
You could also just kill him and his extended family, get looting rights AND you also get this shiny new phone!
Add two more families, and you might win this FANCY NEW CAR
And maybe you want to have dinner with a celebrity? Or an all-inclusive luxury vacation to Mauritius? A fancy new home? You can get all this and more by contributing to our project either financially, physically or both. Clean up the nation and win great prizes!
And remember, kids: Red tags are enemies, blue tags are friends!

In the civilized world, wherever that is in 15-20 years, people will say "Dude. How mean people can be. Africans.."
And nobody will ever track down the money that flowed in from multinational corporations who for some reason wanted the annoying *ethnic group* to go. Perhaps their ancient holy grazing grounds houses an oil field? Arms deals will be made, and injustices self-perpetuate.

Community-based, crowdsourced, crowdfunded - welcome to Genocide 2.0!

Oh, fuck yeah.

We need Net or someone to make posters for this.
"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre."
- Frank Zappa

“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shaku

I'm fairly sure this happened in 1994.

Whoa... the worst thing is that it doesn't sound impossible in the least.  :horrormirth:

I'm fairly sure this happened in 1994.

Whoa. Where?
Everything comes to an end, reader. It is an old truism to which may be added that not everything that lasts, lasts for long. This latter part is not readily admitted; on the contrary the idea that an air castle lasts longer than the very air of which it is made is hard to get out of a person's head, and this is fortunate, otherwise the custom of making those almost eternal constructions might be lost.
