Ubiquitous Assimilation

7 03 2013

A short scene taken from the film Detachment directed by Tony Kaye. I don’t fully believe in the idea of ‘the powers that be’ controlling us, but more of a natural human regression into numbness and mindlessness. It’s as if we’ve always had this intrinsic human need to escape our own consciousness and inner freedom – for centuries people needed religious figures and monarchy to act as an authoritative guidance. Yet in modern society, we’ve replaced them with brands in the form of people and corporations. Check out how unbelievably messed up this is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6OrrRgy5jk .

So, now Beyonce has become the figurehead of modern society, thou shalt go forth and buy her upcoming concert tickets.

On a lighter note, here’s the link to stream the whole of Detachment for free: http://www.1channel.ch/watch-2732095-Detachment
