And this my friends is a work of pure genius! See my own post On Swearing for a dryer but hopefully no less amusing philosophical discourse on the subject.
This is brilliant agitpop creative activism from Ireland!
Watching the feature documentary, The Flaw, by David Sington, I was intrigued by the clips from the capitalist propaganda cartoon made by the U. S.Camber of Commerce in 1954 called, It’s Everybody’s Business. This was at the height of the Cold War and one can’t avoid the comparison with Soviet propaganda of the same period. The truth is there’s nothing in it. Both sides trying to instil in their citizens a belief in and loyalty to, the prevailing political hegemony.
…..So rang the cries of many Americans on 11th September 2001. Well, this clip from John Pilger‘s, The War You Don’t See, illustrates what the problem was and how U.S. foreign policy since that terrible day has not improved the reputation of the U.S.A. throughout the world one jot….
The guy in this clip is Paul Jacobs an American radical journalist who got lung cancer while investigating the effects on US civilians of the nuclear bomb tests in the Nevada desert in the 50′s and 60′s. The clip is from the documentary Paul Jacobs & The Nuclear Gang, resleased in 1979, 18 months after this clip was filmed, by which time Paul was dead.
