Space-Time Ethics?

Virilio, Open Sky:

If localization, restriction to a particular place, has suddenly become so pitiful for the immobile armchair navigator of this waning millennium, does this really mean we must now have pity on a real space that has already been discredited to the sole advantage of the real time of instantaneous exchanges or, on the contrary, hold our ground against such discrimination (p.124, emphasis in original)?

Put another way: in the context of the body, should we be concerned that Alice is to John Malkovich what Mario is to Vince Carter?
