Is Dvorsky Getting Paid? April 9, 2014

Yesterday George Dvorsky published another bit of propaganda for U.S. military, this time entitled “Watch the U.S. Navy Blow Shit Up with Its Futuristic Railgun” and without any critical commentary whatsoever. As a gamer and science fiction writer I grasp the appeal, but celebrating high-tech weapons has profoundly pernicious implications in the current context of U.S. imperialism and military recruiting. Dvorsky’s title reminders me of lines I once overheard a Navy recruiter use; shooting really big guns was a central part of the pitch. Here transhumanism literally does the work of the military. I hope Dvorsky’s at least getting paid for eir recruiting efforts.
