This film is a must to watch based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner Chris Hedges (Highly recommended).  It charts the rise of the Corporate State and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.

  We witness the rise of the banal everyday and the consuming power of the Internet and its social network sites into our lives.  This technological system, promoted as a  way of creating new forms of collectivism, yet only currently serving to contain the human spirit and creativity, controls the masses in subtle ways to serve a corporate system which has hijacked the control of the Internet (Web 2.0).

  We have seen the creative industries being used by corporations, via funding streams - using artists to propagate myths of the individual and the rise of the celebrity - promoting an idea that the only good artist is one who helps through serving this corporate, advertised-funded system. 

  This propagandized system will end up destroying itself, through its own inversion - you can not feed yourself by running a tube from the anus to the mouth - which is how this system of banality seems to feed itself, until it self-destructs through its own starvation of critical nutrients.  

  The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism but the relevance of what is being expressed, with regards to domestic political and corporate activity around the world, affects us all.

  This video was made completely from clips found on the web (mash-up).

Warning – this film contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.
