The Canadian Patriot: Is Adam Curtis blinded by Anglo-Centrism?

1 Like

Haven’t seen the series he’s discussing but it looks as though the episodes are available thru non-BBC channels, hence playlisted. I think the last one of his I watched was HyperNormalisation (2016-ish).

It doesn’t seem unfair to me that someone from ‘Anglo’ culture tends to use that as the lens he looks through. We all do: show me someone who can “step outside ideology”. Not possible because ideas, symbols, language are what we ‘think with’. I can’t remember who first pointed this out, but think it was Gramsci.

Good pull quote (I only watched about 1/3 of the video). "They know that we know that they don’t know what they are doing"
