This will not be a fun post, but one that opened my mind and hopefully others. If you're in, come in.
I stumbled upon Adam Curtis a couple of years ago. I'm a seeker of ideas, paying special attention to those that counter ideas of my own. Always looking for alternative ways at looking at singular issues of our time, Adam's take is unique and highlights narrative threads unseen or underreported by traditional media.
It sums up the strange mood of our time, where nothing really makes any coherent sense. We live with a constant vaudeville of contradictory stories that makes it impossible for any real opposition to emerge, because they can't counter it with any coherent narrative of their own.
