American Journalism

“Intolerance of ambiguity is the mark of an authoritarian personality.” 

― Theodor W. Adorno

After Vietnam, the mainstream media was shutdown. It was prevented from reporting from the battlefield by the American government and corporations. Now, the Internet and alternative media outlets like Unicorn Riot provide real hard hitting authentic battlefield reporting, live streaming from the scenes of events. I see a civil war coming in the streets of this country. This is JULY, and the election month is NOVEMBER. War is ugly and this is what we’re starting to see in our streets friends. Ain’t no goin’ back. Lines are being draw, and it’s a matter of time before you see things get more and more ugly. I do not like, do not want it, but after tonight I can understand it.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
