Documentary: ‘Human Resources: Social Engineering In The 20th Century’

It’s a little old, but if you haven’t seen it then I think you’ll find it thought provoking.

    the mediums effecting & changing humans
    are not the puny “think this way” content of media
    these “scientists” are as clueless as the so-called victims
    why have humans focused on “human engineering”?
    because it’s really hard for them to imagine
    that they are being shaped & engineered by their technologies

    Pavlov has nothing on the TV
    unless you see Pavlov’s bell as a technology

    So glad I found metanoia and the docs therein, back in ’09, final nail in the coffin of my preconceptions. Of course I do have to give some credit to netflix, which actually has a pretty significant doc library, which started my philosophical/social transformation.
    Incidentally, Metanoia links to disinfo, which is how I wound up here.

  4. Ok, before I watch the video I have to tell y’all that after I read Matt’s setup above the video I managed to click the video in the story below it. Hey just got off work…

    Now I am wondering what is so thought provoking about this guy making noise for Christ. I started to wonder if Matt’s cheese had slid off his cracker.

    Then I decided to check the comments section to see what was up. Suddenly I’m wondering if you’ve all gone ’round the bend.

    Well the video stopped when I went to the comments. When I restarted it, it was the correct one. Then I really started to think I was nuts and for a minute I was sure Rod Serling was in the room. Finally I figured out what I did.

    Now I’m gonna watch the film.

      Cheese slid off the cracker a long time ago, although I must insist that said cracker wasn’t a consecrated wafer.

      • Are you saying you are a “recovering” Catholic too?

          Nah, I was raised apocalyptic Presbyterian.

          • Well, at least you had the apocalypse. Thank God for that, huh?

            Yeah, we had some crazy stuff going on in that church. Tons of stuff about the End Times and Satan. I refused to go after I turned about ten. Even the cool (utterly literal) monsters from Revelation and the films about the Rapture weren’t enough to tear me away from my GI Joes. Shortly thereafter, my dad stopped going. Good call, in my opinion.

  5. Very nice. Connects the dots very nicely. I have to check out metanoia now.

  6. Film is blocked. Try this link:

      Wonderful job! Thanks.

      It is blocked now. It wasn’t last night. What is UMG?

      Just joined Open Film, and I’m watching another of your films now.

      Keep up the good work.
