Brave New World with Stephen Hawking - FastTadpole - 11-23-2011

This torrent is widely available on other trackers so I don't see the point of uploading it. The series is loaded with all sorts of juicy propaganda. Wondering if anyone wants to discuss it and break it down.

I got 30 seconds into it and watched aghast as self driving cars were promoted as an evolution in freedom. I figured it was good fodder for critics of the scientific technocracy.

It's just so right in your face, manipulative social engineering, PR to lubricate the new age.

The robotic little freak is one of the elite's frontmen, that is obvious. Also managed to stay alive well beyond the expected period and I'm sure he isn't using Gerson.
