HyperNormalisation, Adam Curtis - BBC

HyperNormalisation, Adam Curtis - BBC | Political world | Scoop.it
Welcome to the post-truth world. You know it’s not real. But you accept it as normal.
Kev Richards's insight:
Timely documentary that controversially tries to "explain" why things are as they are in politics. Featuring a young Donald Trump who transformed New York in the 70s!! Familiar story of banker power and the Middle East but with details probably not well known. If people knew how their world is manipulated and shaped by people like Trump and the money establishment they would not think that "things just happen" as many people seem to. His analysis that collective power of the people is finished rings true. THEY are organised, WE are not. Thats the message.
