Interesting IBS and more than a hint of truth about it.

In addition to the points raised have you noticed how we are brainwashed into having an "agreed opinion" ?

Media swamping of "how to think" and "what is good"

The list is very big and varied

Female Bishops in the church is good, why?
Racism is abhorrent and unjustified, is it?
We need to plough cash to Africa, do we?
Multiculturalism is good, is it?
Ched Evans is a monster, is he?
More black managers are needed in football, are they?
Greenpeace protects the planet, do they?
Amnesty International is a noble organisation, is it?

etc etc

Some of the items in my short list might be correct but nobody actually thinks about it any more, they just accept the points of view that TV and the twittersphere pump out at them.

A nation of sheep busy tying flowers to lamp posts.

According to a bloke in the media who is rubbishing what is being said by the media.

Pick and choose what suit suits your agenda and spin it as the absolute truth.

You're wasting your time on here IBS (hence why you needed to bump this topic).

As for jollyroger, you take a post like this and spread evil seeds of hatred in it, you may say you're just asking the question and not expressing an opinion but your post is not smart enough to get away with that. You've posed numerous questions and suggested that anyone who believes it is in fact a sheep, you're being derogatory towards anyone that doesn't share your dated and vile views.

The video below has stats on racism in the USA, it is very much the same here in the UK and is well worth a watch, especially if you think that 'racism isn't a big deal anymore...'

Female Bishops in the church is good, why?
Because if not we are disallowing people from certain roles based on nothing but their gender.

Racism is abhorrent and unjustified, is it?
Yes because if not then we judging people based not on their character as a human being but on nothing more than the colour of their skin.

We need to plough c

Interesting point Walter. My first thought after watching the documentary was that Adam Curtis could be like the Russian avant garde artist quoted in the film, who announces that he is spreading confusion, to spread more confusion.

However what does strike a chord with me about the film is that the political compass seems to have gone haywire,: it is impossible to form a coherent narrative when you don't

Unknowingly poignant. Can you actually tell left from right these days? That's the whole point.

Could we ever? The concept of 'left and right' in politics is a wholly man made construct and yet we talk about it as though there is some natural and universal truth within it.

A bit like religion.

I agree with you. The deception about left and right has always been an illusion.

I also agree that religion is a man made construct.

God though is a different kettle of fish.

An inevitable consequence of the evermore fragmenting society, illustrating how politicians manipulate it to seize power. Bunch of post-modern machiavellis.

Don't worry they will all welcome you back with open arms.Multiple pairs of open arms in some instances.

But how does one backslide from the products of the remarkable ability of humanity to invent deities? Backsliding from imagination? Bizarre.

I'm afraid simply stating that is a feeble attempt at gaining the moral high ground. Try to use facts and reasoned arguments instead next time and you may fool more than the most gullible amongst us.
