Trailer — Brave New Digital World: The Revelation

“The 20th century had media visionaries like Lippmann and Huxley and McLuhan and Postman. The 21st century has Jeff Einstein. Brave New Digital World: The Revelation is a brilliant and profound work of media and social criticism.” — York Eggleston

Below is the trailer for my new PPV video, Brave New Digital World: The Revelation — a video manifesto for the 21st century. In it I talk about what happens to our time, money and freedom in the rise of a dystopian society ruled and controlled by a state-sanctioned meta-addiction to all things media and all things digital. “What happens to the quality of life for ourselves, our families, our communities and our country,” I ask, “when addiction emerges as the default social condition, the rule rather than the exception?”

  1. Very perceptive! Have read/ studied Orwell and Huxley and am distressed at what is developing. At 58 ( and no Luddite) those in my immediate age cohort have clearly dropped the ‘question authority’ and have embraced the silly devices and their attendant messages with an enthusiasm that I find sickening. What’s more, this ‘adoption’ and ‘no questions asked’ behaviour has seduced the next generation(s) into thinking there is nothing wrong at all with spending nearly half their week swiping a screen. Just the time waste and opportunity cost alone suggest psychopathy and while in this compromised state, any message(s) designed to subvert critical thinking will be a fait accompli.

    1. Thank you for your comment and observations, Mark. There can be no critical thinking when no one takes the time to think, when all of our time is consumed by our meta-addiction to all things media and all things digital. I hope you will take a few minutes to read my essay (more a manifesto), The Rise of Fascism in a Brave New Digital World. I’d love your feedback, and many thanks once again.

    1. Thank you, Keith. Yes, been incubating and refining the message for a number of years while the rest of the world caught up. I’d love to talk to you at some point about your Work Mindfulness at some point when you have the time. Meanwhile, I look forward to seeing you on the 26th at the Open Center.
