Big Data and Super-Computers: foundations of Cyber CommunismComputing . Political Economy . Socialism
I shall be elaborating on the following theses:
- The inability of 20th century socialism to progress to communism led to the crisis of theUSSR.
- Communism requires a definite stage of development of technology.
- This stage was only reached at the very end of the 20th century.
- But this problem of technical adequacy can not be understood in just humanist terms of‘plenty’ or in terms of ‘the realm of necessity’.
In the process I will address what I see to have been misconceptions about communism onthe part of the Soviets, before going on to look at the transitional stages a modern economywould need to achieve communismBigData
