The cashless society is a con – and big finance is behind it | Brett Scott | Opinion | The Guardian
We can learn from the Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci in this regard. His concept of hegemony referred to the way in which powerful parties condition the cultural and economic environment in such a way that their interests begin to be perceived as natural and inevitable by the general public. Nobody was on the streets shouting for digital payment 20 years ago, but increasingly it seems obvious and “natural” that it should take over. That belief does not come from nowhere. It is the direct result of a hegemonic project on the part of financial institutions.

We can also learn from Louis Althusser’s concept of interpellation. The basic idea is that you can get people to internalise beliefs by addressing them as if they already had those beliefs. Twenty years ago nobody believed that cash was “inconvenient”, but every time I walk into London Underground I see adverts that address me as if I was a person who finds cash inconvenient. The objective is to reverse-engineer a belief within me that it is inconvenient, and that cashlessness is in my interests. But a cashless society is not in your interest. It is in the interest of banks and payments companies. Their job is to make you believe that it is in your interest too, and they are succeeding in doing that.

Detaining immigrant kids is now a billion-dollar industry
Health and Human Services grants for shelters, foster care and other child welfare services for detained unaccompanied and separated children soared from $74.5 million in 2007 to $958 million in 2017. The agency is also reviewing a new round of proposals amid a growing effort by the White House to keep immigrant children in government custody.



Currently, more than 11,800 children, from a few months old to 17, are housed in nearly 90 facilities in 15 states — Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

How Smart TVs in Millions of U.S. Homes Track More Than What’s On Tonight - The New York Times
“The thing that really struck me was this seems like quite an enormous ask for what seems like a silly, trivial feature,” Mr. Kitchen said. “You appear to opt into a discovery-recommendation service, but what you’re really opting into is pervasive monitoring on your TV.”

Danny Dyer mentioned David Davis on Eastenders last night. Lob in a couple of "twats" and it would have been perfect
There’s another new episode of EastEnders tonight. If the producers have any sense, they’ll junk half of the filmed footage and just let Danny Dyer free-associate about all the other cabinet resignations today. Just put a camera on him and let him go. Stick it out live if you need to.

Kids as young as 1 in US court, awaiting reunion with family

How Silicon Valley Fuels an Informal Caste System | WIRED
As quixotic as the European Neo-Luddism might be, it does make for a pleasant place to live. One of the most refreshing things about living in Europe (or small towns in the rural US) is knowing that the poor aren’t condemned to a completely separate, and inferior, life. Your place in the world isn’t wholly defined by wealth.

Anonymity as Culture: Treatise - Triple Canopy
Historian Robert H. Wiebe writes, in Self-Rule: A Cultural History of American Democracy (1995), of the emergence of a “national class” at the turn of the twentieth century, the group of professional urbanites who held jobs that were more tied to the emerging national, rationalized society than to any local community: engineers, doctors, lawyers, professors, bankers, and the like. What remained was the “local class,” consisting of those members of the middle and upper classes who were more deeply tied by professional bonds to their communities: realtors, retailers, and other service providers who did not come to be a vocal part of the national conversation.

The degree of suspicion varies. Within 4chan, the /b/ board is far more likely to be given over to trolling and fraud than other boards. But since the possibility always exists, there is a persistent need to take nothing at face value.

The anonymity of A-culture has unexpectedly provided the conditions for a reestablishment of what Huizinga thought had disappeared by the nineteenth century, with its increasingly bourgeois, professionalized, and industrialized cultures. With those elements of individual identity that might be divisive and might reference the positions and responsibilities of “real” life obscured, freedom is reestablished. What looks like anarchy from the outside is rarely actually anarchic; it is play, carefully regimented and circumscribed

'Toxic' Whitehall power culture fingered for GDS's fall from grace • The Register
Acknowledging that the wind has gone out of GDS's sails, Watmore said that GDS now had to move into its fourth phase. "It needs new momentum," he said.

While Watmore suggested it could be Matt Hancock to breathe this fresh life into GDS, Martha Lane Fox, who wrote the report that effectively acted as the blueprint for GDS, expressed slightly less faith in the minister of fun.
