The Synchronization Of Emotions | Paul Virilio, 2010


“This first regime consisted of the standardization of products and opinions.
The second, current regime is comprised of the synchronization of emotions,
ensure the transition from a democracy of opinion to a democracy of emotion”

“The contemporary sedentary is someone who feels at home everywhere,
thanks to cellphones, and the nomad is someone who does not feel at home
anywhere, someone who is excluded, ostracized.”

“Speed now illuminates reality whereas light once
gave objects of the world their shape.”

Paul Virilio, The Administration of Fear, 2010
