It’s time to have a break from social media and/or probably abandon the most vicious ones. Of course, autoposting will continue – and that’s it for now. I’ve never been into Мордо(р)книга, i.e. Facebook but I did enjoy Twatter Twitter. After we, Russians, elected Danila Trumpov aka Donald Trump, subverted every election one can possibly think of and pushed Western liberal democracies into a schizodelic Russomaniacal frenzy the mission is complete. It’s time to rest and spend sweet Putin’s money.

What do we have next?

Tumblr? You must be kidding!

Google+? See Tumblr.

Gab? Too autistic for me.

Minds? See Google+.

Pinterest? I shared pics from my blogs there.

Instagram? I use it from time to time to show pics of Russia that I take randomly.

Reddit? Better deaded than Reddit! See Minds.

I watch YouTube videos in English and Russian on politics and cultural topics, etc., but I don’t upload any content there.

VKontakte, which I liked at some point, is the most anti-free speech platform I can imagine – a VK landing page with an ‘inappropriate’ post can literally land you in jail. Facebook and Twitter still have a way to go in this regard. Big Brat never sleeps!

So I have 3 main platforms that I’d like to focus on:

This blog: RussianUniverse.org

My blog in Russian: Armeyskov.com

My Telegram channel (also in Russian): t.me/cargoculturology

The Memes of Our Lives, or How the Internet Shapes Reality in the Current Year

A vision of the future (German magazine, 1930).

Speaking of predictions, or rather visions of the future, I like reading those of the past. There is something essentially human in the act of trying to break from the banality of one’s own existence and explore the Fourth Dimension – Time. Russian futurist and poet Velimir Khlebnikov in his 1921 piece titled ‘Radio of the Future’ (Radio Budushchego) wrote:

Radio of the Future – the main tree of consciousness – will open up the way of solving infinite tasks and will unite mankind. […] Imagine the main camp of the Radio: web of wires in the air, lightning going out and sparkling again, shifting from one end of the building to another. Blue round lightning ball hanging in the air like a shy bird; obliquely stretched wires. Every day flocks of news about the life of the spirit, resembling a spring flight of birds, are spread from this point on the globe.
