It’s no wonder American’s are angry and traditional party affiliations are floating to the atmosphere; our culture is a conglomerate of Movements. I have often pondered the next US president’s role as Movement Leader. I also believe one factor that may keep all movements from sparking all-out-revolution in our streets like the Arab Spring is the revolution that already is occurring: the technological production of humanly impossible amounts of information to interpret. The digital technology revolution cannot be managed as long as business, institutions and organizations keep producing and analyzing more data hoping to gain control over competitors as well as narratives in all these societal movements. People are already information distracted and will remain distracted to the degree that to begin any socio-political street-level revolution there would need to be more data.
