Aye everything is loaded but surely that cannot surprise anyone. Engels and Marx propounded the above view In 1848's The Communist Manifesto and there has been no change since. Everything else is filler though Chomsky and Pilger are excellent.
We all accept it.
Trotsky said unless you're part of the permanent revolution then your part of the problem.
Martin Luther King said for bad things to happen all we need to do is stand silent.
A famous civil liberties judge said evil people don't come knocking on the door with a swastika armband but are more insidious.
But we all buy into it buying our cars, iphones, ipads, ugg boots - all are sops to the masses as Marx said of religion and blind is to the reality.
Surfing days, weekends, other activites also are sops to the masses. It makes us think we're above everyone else but we are no different. We are all working our tits off to enjoy it when we're nearly dead.
No different to 1800s workers who were given sunday off to prevent rioting and enable more efficient production. its why organised sport was invented. We have not moved on. Futurists such as Marshall McLuhan and the idea of a democratised global village were wrong - we just use the net, generally, to post drivel such as this.
We are essentially worker ants all going in the same direction for higher forces (think it might have been Vincent Pareto who said there are born rulers). Surfing might make us think we're different but its all degrees of freedom allowed for the greater good. Its also in their interest to keep the underclass sky tv'ed up and pissed up so as not to theorise. They serve to scare the rest of us into working hard - a docile soceity serves the rulers. We have only been docile for about 300 years - humans a essentially barbaric and have been for millions of years. Coming back to the start Marx amd Engels and Trotsky would say harness that barbarism for the greater good.
So there you are. A PPE education in a quick post - will save you thousands in an Oxbridge education.
Me, I've taken the blue pill whereas Neo chose the red. Anybody choosing the red or bigging themselves up needs to get to Columbia and fight with F A R C - you might meet a hot lass http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/ja ... s-colombia
