1. Thank you for posting that!

The whole thing is about privilege in one way or another.

From 20:00-25:00 it is about a certain type of privilege: Plato's "Noble Lie."

Interesting also that toward the end he throws the American public under the bus as uninformed voters. #NoDoubt

2. But what is interesting is that a whole industry - Public Relations, advertisement

and media consultants - are devoted to creating uninformed people making emotional and irrational decisions.

Stay away from advertisement and propaganda. They will kill you.

Beware of want and ignorance.
