they are having a conference
on the power of the hashtag

meanwhile POTUS tweets
140 characters backed up
by many many many megatons
enough for every
man, woman
and child

on
or off-line

****

hashtag democracy can
save us

can exorcise any
political evil

it is the sign
of the true cross
(#truecross)

****

we are only
a stone’s throw
from liberation

spread the
digital world (trolling
every
heretic, every
textual atheist
true
sceptic and
unbeliever

****

the conference on the
revolutionary role
of the hashtag in
democratic politics
was stalled for
a brief moment over
a difference
of opinion:
Plato throttling Habermas throttling
McLuhan throttling
Gil Scott-Heron
