this might be off topic but i've seen alot of older "freedom of speech anarchists" from 90s/00s suddenly turn out to be libertarians (if that makes any since). basically people back then who were into freedom of information and computer security are now crypto loving ancaps who want to own more shit then ever. there seems to be alot of them in the /cy/ scene. anyone else seen this?




They became overpaid software "engineers"


being a programmer pays well


their brains got cucked by burger propaganda




The revolutionary ones go to jail or fuck off to some project where they are more concerned with getting stuff done than web fame.


alot of people who are into cyber security are very much capitalist which is very confusing. they want less corporate surveillance but also want to own there own mega business.

Your obvservation is by no means new; but a proper, critical history of the foss and free culture movements has yet to be written.


because ideology is spooked
elon is okay with anarchist ideas, taken to the logical conclusion
the libertine hippies, for all their rebellion, only ended up tools of capital
most of the tech megacorps have executives, who are literally bourgeoisie super elites, that no doubt still believe that they are ragtag rebels, against the state and society with their pesky reluctance to deregulate and let the digitalverse be free from any restrictions.


At the end of the day, individualism elevated above all isn't antagonistic but sympathetic to unregulated, laissez faire capitalism. Many neoatheist sorts criticized the religious establishment personalities also but then turned around and backed America's depraved wars even when launched by those criticized personalities. Plus those stock options speed up the cooptation.


that's a good thread of what i'm talking about but i still think there was free information movement at one point but as hostel technology got to the user it became harder for people to think that way, kinda like class consciousness.


It's not the same people just lolberts infiltrated internet communities during times of increased centralized corporatization of the internet trying to get on the same bandwagon while the anarchists were stuck not having enough time to do anything because increasing demands of their jobs while lolberts usually dont have jobs.


nah insufferable libertarianism has always been part of US tech culture. (at least, the post-Altair part anyone actually cares about)
"The Californian Ideology" wasn't written for nothing.


Tech optimism died and all that was left was the greasy salesmen
