masses of people as dynamic media … can we continue to keep the masses happy + distracted whilst the military-industrial complex continues to push its twisted sense of freedom, of anti-terror? nothing to see here … move along please
well, watch this video ‘The Century of the Self, Part 1’ … just found it thanks to a little post from Jo-Anne Green on The Book through Turbulence’s Networked_Performance
as we move from the military-industrial into the age of information … this seemingly neverending transition where everything is automated + less expensive … where the underbrimming horizonless world of our formerly newly-found globalized debauch … is it possible to move on into the numbness … is it even ecomonically feasible?
interesting discussion about Freud + Bernays … about the beautiful way we can use the extremely powerful force of words, of language, to modify the concept of propaganda + invent a counsel of public relations
the frenzied mob, yes … in a strange way i would love to pull another War of the Worlds to play upon the fear of the masses + play on the heightened internal fears of the masses
interesting talk about democracy, about the engineering of consent, about a sense of enlightened despotism, consumerism, a special form of guidance
