Internet Radicalisation

 

Callum's disengagement with the news and media and his interest in conspiracy theories stuck me. The film Calum mentioned is one of the first big internet films, with over 50 million views. It's part of internet history called Zeitgeist. There's a narrative of revolution and a shift of consciousness. The film first seeks to first debunk fundamental preconceptions of traditional society, then seeks to convert the viewer with an argument for a communist utopian design of a perfected future society.

We are the first generation to have access to mass unvetted media on the internet.

The word Revolution seems to be the new popular buzzword.

The value of this clip was Jeremy Paxman's insistence to hold Brand to his question. So what is this revolution? Brand did his best to avoid but finally cracked. It was a rare occasion when Brand broke his hidden agenda?  So what is a socialist revolution? Filmed in 2011, Brands policial message seems to be prophetical in the ushering in of Jeremy Corbyn.
