The language of the upper echelons of leadership is digitalization… Otherwise, commands and censures, those two antisymmetrical instruments of leadership, could not be communicated. KIttler, Gramophone, 249-50.
Leadership requests strengths and weaknesses from advisory committees as a way to filter out the “accidental noise” of culture for “an absolute all-or-none organ.” The trench-warfare irony is that the advisory committee becomes the filter of their own instruments. They become the noise that is filtered. Complicit.
