Video  Brave New World with Stephen Hawking
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.
