The common good is shaped by the struggle for its definition. It is not a question of what 'the common good' is or of what serves 'the common good' in material terms but rather 'how' the common good is determined.

Schemes to 'incentive' people to 'do the right thing' are a cynical form of manipulation. If you can not trust in people's capacity to engage in dialogue to decide and choose 'to do the right thing' then why should anyone trust that your thing is 'the right thing' at all.

Facebook is not "tech". Facebook is a corporation that subverts technology for their own purposes.

Machines and software are the embodiment of technology, which can be seized, re-appropriated, and repurposed for good uses.

Confession time I haven't been here much the past few months but have been on the dark side where most of my friends remain. I promise to evangelise and convert a few in the new year because I miss them otherwise.
