"Programs is that you cannot actually hypnotized someone to do anything that they would otherwise be morally opposed this very good point back in nineteen whatever. It was fifty eight. They discovered that you cannot actually alter how people behave beside the failure to repeat psychological psychology experiments sixty years later fifty s later. Show you exactly the same thing. That doesn't mean that people copy sold things are advertising and mean people copy captain estate of what's high arousal emotions online but but underneath the something much deeper human beings which is they actually have a conscious understanding of what i think what they believe depending on their experience where they are in the power structure the quality of life. They actually a much stronger than you think. Which gives me great optimism. Because if we can recapture that if you could get confidence back then actually you might be able to keep the world of the individuals. It's not really you can't get back into the collectors yet. At the same time begins. Give people confidence to really try and challenge pound. Do things and change the world properly rather than patronizing them all the time and having stupid which just thinks room. I mean this gets into my. I guess my last question for you. Which is you know this whole. The of living in the age of individualism is is the dominant hegemonic. Ethos of our times but at the same time like you know in in our lifetimes or like you as you show in the movie. The idea of our sense of confidence in ourselves as individuals or as even being able in charge of our own minds has been steadily chipped away at and wondering like to regain a sense of confidence in ourselves or at least our ability to oppose these systems of management and control our confidence as individuals in conflict with the idea of individualism as like a prime primary goal or ideal in our society. I think what. I'm quantity underneath these films. Suggesting the really. We've lived through an age of individualism came out to the second world war. On the horrors of those collect of collectivism fascism like communist totalitarianism. It has been a glorious wonderful liberating time it speed a time in history and unlike anything else it has always problems and it had lots of other things that were wrong with it but it was a moment of great liberation but it is very strange that what started office idea of empowerment has now lead in america on throughout the west. I'm in china and russia two sets of millions and millions of individuals fitting months and frightened about the future. I'm those in power. Have nothing to offer to explain to them how to get out of that. You get a sense that something might be the end of. Its natural life but what i also now is the yukon put individuals and back in the box and what we're waiting for something or someone or some idea some vision of the future which says now i can square the circle i can actually create a system which will allow you to carry on thinking feeling genuinely that she confident individual yet also relish and like in part the feeding of being part or something that can build something in the future which will go on past your own existence because that's quite thrilling. I'm quite excited. We're waiting for that. Part of me. Thinks in a practical way. The first thing to do is electric internet back. Then the people who got hold of it the venture capitalist in about two thousand dot com crash and those skewed a narrowed it and distorted it. I'm screwed up journalism in the process. Take it back and actually use it as a way of genuinely connecting people collectively which was its original utopian ideas. And i've always believed to most of the things that was the good ideas in the ninety s. That's one practical thing but other is just a story about the world. It doesn't have to be very complicated but it just helps to have this sense that that it. It's the i quote. This guy called david graber. Who's not who's not missed in front of the series and ended the series who simply said the great hidden truth about the world is that we made this world and if we made it then we can make it different. And i find that really swimming. I love that idea because we've been persuaded that we can't complexity theory psychology all those things. Now tell us where we're uncertain and you can't do anything but the truth is which is really what. I'm trying to demonstrate these films is we did make this world together. We all did you know we. It's our responsibility for having been individuals that corroded the power of the politicians. It's the politicians for having given up on the idea that you actually can lettuce in power. We did this together and if we did that together we can make different together. And i think that's really quite thrilling. But the way to do that is someone's gonna come along and say yes. You can still be an individual but you cannot. She worked together to create something beyond. This will happen. If it doesn't then the horrible nationalisms and the oldness of the past are going to come back but you don't do it by telling people they're stupid you have to go talk to those people who voted for donald trump and voted for brexit. Even if they're racist they're not racist because that just racism doesn't come out of nowhere it comes because they're frightened and scared and angry. You've got to go and talk to those people and you've got to do it. And and the only person ever soda bernie sanders wanna talk to people after don trump was not those quite right really. Good if you can't change the world just by talking to each other and producing radical culture. Think that's a good place to wrap it up a felix and matt you have any closing comments thoughts or questions. I think we. I think we do it. Okay the football on that one Adam curtis thank you so much for the new series. Thank you for spending some time with us. Thank you thank you..

"Rather complex and other tendency to be of it's over ad hoc shoot from the hip spit from the lip ask questions atop of a character is that kyle's and the use of chaos is required that this is sense in me we the induction of chaos will be beneficial when looking at this of contemporary politics i've felt as you have automatically it i'm from my own experience with the truth and one of the reasons hurricanes have you as a guest as a matter of fact item is because like of like waist deep in political discourse getting miller band round the flat and interview in him and so of being very outspoken in what became a very competitive and what i want to say dialectic difficult exchange with britain's media particularly is i felt like this is really hard to get any traction if i feel very quickly mired and like being around the political class will be briefly around mid abandoned is para cheeks it felt like this doesn't seem like it if a very sort of a of jangling neurotic of coterie people didn't think like all this is the advancement power and then from being the recipient of the kind of i would say it could tailing of managing forces from the media that was interesting as well it felt like some interesting to become the subject of such negativity not only from service tablet media but from people in general because when you talk about change when you talk about chaos when you talk about the people like is very interesting why felt like he's like in the story of the emperor's new clothes is like the in the engine say that kid just shut up sub saying that about the imprint you'll ruining this parade they in the and people get angry to people get angry with if you say something like right doesn't make different vote for you'll get the same political system anyway people know that is true and they know it's wrong so they become angry with in this case me for saying instead of thinking well bloody la repainting ill so that's reality.

"Since i mean the interesting thing about the nine thousand nine hundred is everyone thinks that thatcher reagan really were successful but actually if you look back increasing historians looking back and going now they weren't they came in saying they were going to regenerate industry but by about nineteen eighty six eighty seven most of the industries in britain and america had clubs because of the economic experiment so what thatcher and reagan did was they set they turn to finance and they said can you help us i mean this is actually what happened and what finance did said is what will lend the money wages weren't going up wages where she collapsing at that point so what happened is you had a switch and they gave power to finance and finance came in and introduced the idea of lending on a much grander scale the politicians allowed that because they facilitated all sorts of new acts of parliament that allowed that to happen so what you got his shift away from the idea that you are on a constant travelator of increase wages increased security in the industries you worked in the your income stagnated and it was supplemented by lending money so finance for example got a great deal of power now underlying finance is a deep desire to keep the world stable to avoid chaotic situations so we began to move into that world where we're always trying to avoid risk what then that happens is that idea begins to spread out not just literally in terms of byu lending money but the idea avoiding risk becomes a central thing in our society and i would argue that we've all become terrified of change i one of the things i've sort of inches conservative of course of course one of the things i've intuited but not yet fully articulated because i imagine.

"There is a genuine appetite for what do you imagine as in is the what what is the problem that in a way why would we expect if the world is changing as radically as is if as a result of technology and racing a rapidly advancing economic realities that the conventional in traditional left would be the answer why would we imagine that i mean in the sense these are centuries old ideas that have not been modified because we're no longer living in a version of twentieth century capitalism always i why would like so why would twentieth century socialism beer response to it into way i argue in the film where try and demonstrate journalistically in the film that we know we're not living in the old idea of capitalism we used to think about what we've shifted into is a a new system of power which i see as being fundamentally managerial it's their vast new bureaucracies around us including things on the internet but but also in finance an unin management systems in all the places that many people work him their aim is to essentially keep the world stable i mean that's what finance is desperate to do it's it's always wanting to monitor the world looking for risk risk is a fascinating word i up to this is how boring i'm i did a word search on lexis nexis which is the cuttings file with all newspapers up until about nineteen eighty eight nine hundred ninety the word risk hardly features in in journalism he's obviously there and then suddenly in the nineties it rises up and it's this what drives modern managerial capitalism if you can give it a word like that is this desire to avoid instability to analyze the past look for patterns that are happening now that look like jobs in the past and then adjust there's always a sort of a right thing to be and i i see it in our own personalities as well there's always a right way to be psychologically there's always a right body mass index to have there is always the right stable thing to be.

"Yes that's very that's a very good example the reaction is the most interesting thing of our time we sort of expected the the arms industry and the government in this country would allegedly allow arms to be supplied to this war that we know is causing horrific civilian deaths we have nowhere controlling it we know that and we just accepted it's normal but actually it's rome isn't it yes we know that however much we feel it might be wrong nothing's going to change is it can condition of five mineralisation then adam impotence it is impotence in the face of a chaotic world that we think those in charge have no control over but we accept it so it's not just impotence it's where passive and we accept it so in a way we are as complicity it as our leaders but but we do that because no one has gives us any alternative we accept it as just normal when thing when you have an alternative you can see suddenly something you puts it in perspective you got an alternative you see you see things trudy for what they are and you can pull back to touch and go i don't like that this is better or you don't at the moment there isn't an i think one of the great fault lies with the left who say they do on change i mean the real change it moment is coming from a strange weird mixture of right wing nationalism racism as far as i can see yes but failing to offer any alternative.
