Gabriella Coleman's Favorite News Stories Of The Week | Techdirt | Digital Protest | Scoop.it
This week's favorites post will be a bit different than normal, as a communication mix up meant that Gabriella thought the favorites post was supposed to mainly cover stories Techdirt hadn't covered over the week, rather than ones it had.

BND lässt sich Abhören von Verbindungen deutscher Provider genehmigen | Digital Protest | Scoop.it

Der Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) lässt sich offenbar seit mindestens zwei Jahren das Anzapfen von Kommunikationsleitungen deutscher Internetprovider genehmigen. Eine entsprechende Anordnung zur "Beschränkung des Brief-, Post- und Fernmeldegeheimnisses" schickte der Geheimdienst, der für die Aufklärung im Ausland zuständig ist, an den Verband der deutschen Internetwirtschaft.

Counterpolitics of Liberation in Contemporary China: Corruption, Law, and Popular Religion

Counterpolitics of Liberation in Contemporary China: Corruption, Law, and Popular Religion | Digital Protest | Scoop.it

(2013). Counterpolitics of Liberation in Contemporary China: Corruption, Law, and Popular Religion. Ethnos: Vol. 78, No. 3, pp. 328-351.

 

This article explores the hidden transfers between law and religion by focussing on the conditions of existence of ‘liberated’ peasant subjects in contemporary China. The post-Maoist era sought to create new citizens from the collectivised Maoist masses who are subject to market reforms and a new politics of ‘governing through law’ (fazhi). At the same time, new religiousities have blossomed in the Chinese countryside. Representing ‘feudal superstition’, their collective practices remain illegal until today. I argue that, beyond the issue of belief, contemporary ‘feudal superstition’ does not represent a form of anti-secular resistance, but rather confirms the central tenets of Chinese secularism from the perspective of ‘failed’ peasant subjects. Where the realities of market liberalisation and governing through law are experienced as corruption, feudal superstition recreates the conditions to realise liberated peasant subjects: a participatory local public sphere, political visibility, investments in the public good, and a new collective property.

The Network of Global Corporate Control

The Network of Global Corporate Control | Digital Protest | Scoop.it

Vitali S, Glattfelder JB, Battiston S (2011) The Network of Global Corporate Control. PLoS ONE 6(10).

 

The structure of the control network of transnational corporations affects global market competition and financial stability. So far, only small national samples were studied and there was no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers.

The Ongoing Deterioration of Egyptian Journalism

The Ongoing Deterioration of Egyptian Journalism | Digital Protest | Scoop.it

Think of American mainstream media in the aftermath of 9/11 and you might get a general idea of the state of the Egyptian equivalent since the June 30 uprising against Muslim Brotherhood rule—allowing, that is, for less sophistication and a considerably greater measure of crudity. The fluttering flags at the top of television screens, along with variations on the “war on terror” banner, were copied almost identically, if less tastefully, by both state-owned and private Egyptian television stations from CNN, FOX, and the rest.
