"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".

"If there is one thing in this world that I hate, it's losers. I despise them," then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared to a group of high school students, expressing a firm belief in success and failure as the results of individual action and ambition. Himself embodying the American Dream as an immigrant who 'made it big in America,' Schwarzenegger demeaned the worth of individuals he perceived to be 'losers,' and thus echoed an attitude prevalent in contemporary Western neoliberal politics that glorifies 'success,' i.e. striving for the good life, as the only valuable way of being in the world and as the ultimate goal of one's existence.

Girls' Economies: Work & Play Cultures

Edited by Miriam Forman-Brunell
and Diana Anselmo-Sequeira
foreword by Dr. Eileen Boris

We know more about the history of grownups' labor than we do about girls' work, especially in informal domains. We know more about adult women workers than about girlhood employment and work-themed amusements. We know more about girls' consumption practices than about their production patterns. We know more about childhood and play than we do about how play informs girls' work skills, sensibilities, and identities as workers. We know more about businessmen and women than about moneymaking girls.
