HyperNormalisation is a 2016 BBCdocumentary by British filmmaker Adam Curtis. The film was released on 16 October 2016 on the BBC iPlayer.[SUP][/SUP] In the film, Curtis argues that since the 1970s, governments, financiers, and technological utopians have given up on the complex "real world" and built a simple "fake world" that is run by corporations and kept stable by politicians.
I thought I would put this up here to see what people though of it, it is quite long almost 3 hours but I found it quite interesting and I was quite elated after watching it as it confirmed a lot of what I think of the modern world, My OH on the other hand found it quite depressing! It is in 9 chapters so can be watched in chunks, I think it does gloss over a lot of details, Gaddafi in particular but still a very interesting take on our political system and how it is controlled.

Seeing that Trump is dominating the media nowadays I thought it apt.
