A Recommendation

If you have three hours to spare (don’t lie to me, you DO have three hours to spare), you can do a lot worse than spending it watching Adam Curtis’ documentary series “The Trap”. It’s not particularly ground-breaking in terms of the conclusions it draws, if only because they are rather… inconclusive. However, it provides some useful context for analysing the world in which we currently exist, particularly that of modern Britain. 

Given that it’s overtly critical of the New Labour experiment (roughly as critical as it is of Thatcherism), it’s probably not for everybody in terms of its core message. But I think its a useful summation of the post-war experience. 

Here’s the first ten minutes. Warning: There Will Be Cynicism
