Infocult tweet of the week:
That's "thano" as in "thanatos", Greek for death (Θάνατος).
Wark precedes this killer tweet with another, related one: "We no longer live under governmentality, but governmental illness."

That reminds me of a word my Dad coined several years ago: thanatologist -- one who is licensed to help someone deal with the complexities and vagaries of death; either their own, or others'. His point was that it used to be you just up-n-died when your number was called. Now, there are all sorts of questions about heroic measures, estate planning, long-term care, hospice, digital remains, etc. etc. ad mortem. There are often a whole range of people you have to deal with (doctors, lawyers, estate planners, accountants, morticians, clergy, the government, employers) regarding a death in the family. Having one person who can help you navigate the tricky waters of the Styx would be pretty helpful.
