THE MINISTRY OF TRUTH

"The successor to politics will be propaganda. Propaganda, not in the sense of a message or ideology, but as the impact of the whole technology of the times."
~ Marshall McLuhan.


If you ever wondered how the media became the lapdog of capitalist corporate interests instead of the watchdog of the powerful that it's supposed to be, watch Orwell Rolls In His Grave. Run time 1 hour 43 minutes.

I will have to watch it at a faster computer.

It's a long documentary, but very much worth the time. And if you watch from the Google link, you can make it full screen, which is helpful for something this long.

Indeed it is. I've watched it previously and I can only recommend it.
