演讲摘要

二十一世纪,社交媒体正在改变世界。但是,从另一个角度看,也正是世界的改变本身呼唤了社交媒体的出现。作为对于全球化导致的“去地域化”过程的反动,社交媒体所建构的虚拟社区体现的其实是人类社会无法消除的对社群的需求。今天,世界范围内的大规模移民和流动人口的“去地域化”,以及与此伴随的城市化过程、乡村社区的迅速消失、城乡关系的重构,以及难民潮和恐怖主义的兴起,都在导致新的世界范围内的大规模社会动荡和不安,这些都是新媒体环境下社交网络兴起的动因和沃土。

今天,新媒体时代的全球霸权正在占据世界历史舞台,前所未有的人类“无产阶级”化的过程已经开启,它也预示着新媒体作为不断扩大的全世界网民和“码农”的栖息地和劳动场所,其政治意义越来越重要。在这一过程中,国家、主权、主体、族群、阶级和人民等等一系列塑造十九和二十世纪的政治力量并没有消失,而是以新的历史动力呈现,权力的动态拓扑图会更加扑朔迷离。然而,从来都没有救世主,要夺回劳动果实,让思想冲破牢笼,全靠我们自己——这依然是互联网时代世界历史的辩证法。

民主死了,民主万岁!

Future Archaeology in the Age of New Media

In the 21st century, social media is changing the world. However, from another perspective, it is the changes of the world that led to the emergence of social media. As a reaction to the “de-localization” process caused by globalization, the virtual community constructed by social media reflects the demand for the community that human society cannot give up. Today, the worldwide “de-localization” of large-scale immigrants, along with the urbanization process, the rapid disappearance of rural communities, the reconstruction of urban-rural relations, and the rise of refugee flows and terrorism are all leading to the large scale social unrest and uneasiness. Those all are the causes and fertile ground for the rise of social network in the new media environment. 

Toady, the global hegemony of the new media era is occupying the world stage. The unprecedented process of human “proletarianization” has started. It also indicates the political significance of new media which becomes the habitat and workplace of the expanding netizens and coders. In this process, a series political forces shaping the 19th and 20th centuries, such as the state, sovereignty, subject, ethnic group, class and people, have not disappeared but been presented with new historical impetus. The dynamic topology of power will be even more confusing. However, there has never been a savior. To recapture the fruits of labor, to break the mind through the cage, are all rely on ourselves—this is still the dialectic of world history in the Internet age. 

Democracy is dead, long live democracy!
