neither is there need at this moment in history to sound or heed alarm 
nor is there to bear witness silently mute or vocally poetic: the 
embrace of the mainstream industry with its technopoetic arms, its long 
arms, itsautomatic arms, its electronic arms, itsarms,its petrochemical 
arms, its military arms, isof patterns, or is making patterns, 
network-like patterns, barabbasian patterns, informational patterns, but 
productive patterns, profitable patterns, semiocapitalist patterns, and 
market-economic-neuroliberal patterns, algorithmically-invested 
patterns, desirous of some natural-religious explanation and causation: 
its patterns are all PR & marketing depts. And the market is for 
economists, to see which ones write the best, futuristic, progressive, 
smartest, computer-AI-assisted EF [Economic Fiction] techno-poetry. The 
warning is Foucault's: where resistance has gone power will follow. 
Where the resistance has been the power has followed.
