"Explain to me, a dumb construction worker, why someone who wants technology to go as fast as possible would be into anti technocrat bus driver populism."

Liking folk who hate you is counter-signalling game. Nick Land's posture is that they're so weak he can afford to treat them like children throwing a tantrum. It's kind of funny, not threatening. 

Problem being that, at least for the purposes of the internet, Land has given up on associating with any non-children. Obsessed with the counter-signal. 

Admittedly it's impossible to find anyone writing intelligently for the internet. He's not exactly spoiled for choice. The internet is for madmen and San Franciscans (but I repeat myself).
