How does Ian sleep at night know he's turned me into a political wreck who believes and trusts nothing.

This is just the kind of self-indulgent, pretentious, propagandised stupidity that many of my old ("progressive") "friends" from film school would absolutely love.

Sweet, delicious doom porn. For those times when you're out of rationalisations for committing suicide. No thanks.

reality has always been weird as fuck, as technology and populations increase, we have to deal with things getting weirder and weirder. Eventually everything will be a hyper-telepathic technicolour DMT trip hopefully. That will at least be better than all these boring droning politicians.

Can I legally stream this on iTunes or Vimeo or somewhere? Or is it ok with the filmmaker to watch it on youtube free? Pacifica Radio was making a link available to contributors to their fund drive, but the amount they wanted was outside my budget.

I can't believe that he made this documentary without once mentioning Baudrillard. That's like making a documentary about communism without once mentioning Karl Marx.

I've been thinking about this documentary. Thanks for recommending...I watched it. It's interesting. It made me think of the interviews and speeches with Yuri Bezmenov on youtube. The former KGB and Soviet diplomat who defected to Canada. Normalization is the last part of subversion. The four steps; demoralization, destabilization, crisis, & normalization. How to brainwash a nation. "they are normalized. The country is normalized." "if the americans could just take the bananas from their ears. They would see how obvious...." He describes how this process is done. It's important to understand the process of each to wake up. Demoralization is not how it sounds, morals, no it's about loss of hope. If anyone identifies the process in their life. The best thing to do is to study black ops and mind control. Because what Yuri says is that Americans do this to americans. It happens naturally. People are not aware consciously. The completion of normalization takes approximately 30 years. Interestingly enough I've become awake to the whole process which came just inside of that span. The documentary Hypernormalisation talks about a fake reality being created so people will be unable to know what is real and an illusion. I think that this is the key point. Subversion of a nation.... : undermine the power and authority of.. This inability to know what's real. I can say that this is happening. I couldn't even tell if you and Donald Trump were kidding or serious with each other. Lol I just heard that the US Federal government is going to move tons of Muslim refugees to the US... 80 refugees to the city of Poughkeepsie, NY. Believe me no refugee would want to live in the city of Poughkeepsie. The town is fine, but the city is loaded with drugs, guns, and crime. Certainly not a nice place to put refugees. I understand its internationally illegal for this to happen. Guess they think they'll sneak them before Trump gets in office. Here they will receive monitory help and living assistance. Made into a citizen and pushed to be a democrat. Lol I don't know, is this real?

This film is a basically telling it's viewers of why a free internet doesn't work, and why we should go to war with Assad. This faux Documentary is pure propaganda for the Anglo-American NWO. I'm surprised how Russel with his keen eye for bullshit didn't spot Waldo. BBC is a publicity agency for the military industrial complex and friends(big oil,big banks) BEWARE!!!Adam Curtis is working for the wrong people!!!
The Zjhaman (2 years ago)
propaganda bullshit , bbc , bad bullshit crap
Vladimir OnOccasion (2 years ago)
BBC propaganda, manufacturing consent is what they do best...HyperNormalisation documentary has very little content to bother with, just another narrow narrative created for you to believe in. Belief is not knowledge...being there is the only way to have knowledge the rest is just storytelling. Trusting strangers for your beliefs isn't knowledge.

"We live in a world where the powerful deceive us". So starts a video posted by a millionaire comedian, actor and "author". That sounds pretty powerful to me. Perhaps you are the left's answer to Bill O'Reilly, aren't you, Russie boy? The irony.

I see there was a clip from well known CIA asset Timothy Leary. Helping with the culture creation of the time. It's sad but true, the whole of the 60's was a contrived movement, not organic at all!! Check out Dave McGowan's work/books. R.I.P Dave. Neil Sanders does some great work on the subject too. The more you know, the more you realise that you don't know anything. ;)

Actually, rather a lot is changing for the better in the non-Western world. I'm sure this'll be as good as his other stuff, but keep in mind that the perspective is NOT universal - it's eurocentric (and more specifically, anglocentric).

I had a small epiphany the other day. Normal = repeated experience. That's it. Anything that happens consistently, is normal. There is no other stricture.
Alex Colvin (7 days ago)
I have never given birth, therefore I have no experience or repeated experience with child birth, therefore childbirth is not real. Yes, brilliant logic.

Does this have anything bad to say about Hillary Clinton or does it just attack Donald Trump?  I noticed in this trailer that it shows nothing of Hillary but I did see Trump.
Brit Lurker (2 years ago)
Russell Brand and Adam Curtis attack the nihilism and solipsism of the current age. Then when something appears that might break the deadlock, like Brexit, Putin or Trump they join in lockstep with the elite. What gives?
Mikael Kopimi Altemark (2 years ago)
One thought is that neither of them might be reactionary conservatives, even though the mind boggles at the thought.

Shantha Roberts (2 years ago)
Took me forever to track down and I see why you thought it was Natalie but apparently it's actually a cover by The Mortal Coil.
Debbie Prince (2 years ago)
I'm not convinced that it is Natalie, just guessing, but it does sound a lot like her voice. I do love this song, and this version is great - a little different, but still great!

Hi, russell happy you came back!I have a question, why you all the time talk about the negative stuff in the world, what about all the beautiful and positive things in life, you can in rich us with high frequency matters and then we can have more energy to effect others with love instead of complaining all the time!!!Thanks noam!
krileayn (2 years ago)
An appeal to emotion it seems, very little facts, the usual Trump is evil, yet nothing on Hillary who is truly evil.
krileayn (2 years ago)
The problem with Russel is that he seeks to combine spirituality with politics, in the hope this will lead to paradise. Learn your history Russel, that always leads to atrocities.

Wait is the revolution going to be soon or what? Coz I'm ready whenever, someone needs to stand up and agree to be 100% dedicated to helping the world in everyday with proof and updates and I'll just keep throwing money at you, everyone donate $1 to 1 person in the world and see if that 1 guy changes it

Or girl* as I man I believe women to be more smarter in a lot of ways man aren't as much (if your a guy you should understand this as it works both ways) but I also think that we need that type of thinking if we want anything to change, but it isn't accepted in a lot of countries.. We need the right thinkers with the right plan

HyperNormalisation by Howard Beale, Network, 1976. Edward George Ruddy died today! Edward George Ruddy was the Chairman of the Board of the Union Broadcasting Systems and he died at eleven o'clock this morning of a heart condition! And woe is us! We're in a lot of trouble!!! So, a rich little man with white hair died. What does that got to do with the price of rice, right? And why is that woe to us? Because you people and sixty-two million other Americans are listening to me right now. Because less than three percent of you people read books ! Because less than fifteen percent of you read newspapers ! Because the only truth you know is what you get over this tube ! Right now, there is a whole, an entire generation that never knew anything that didn't come out of this tube ! This tube is the Gospel ! The ultimate revelation ! This tube can make or break Presidents ! Popes ! Prime Ministers ! This tube is the most awesome, god-damn force in the whole godless world ! And woe is us if it ever falls into the hands of the wrong people. And that's why woe is us that Edward George Ruddy died. Because this company is now in the hands of CCA, the Communication Corporation of America ! There's a new chairman of the board, a man called Frank Hackett sitting in Mr. Ruddy's office on the 20th floor. And when the twelfth largest company in the world controls the most awesome, god-damn propaganda force in the whole godless world, who knows what shit will be peddled for truth on this network ! So, you listen to me. Listen to me! Television is not the truth ! Television's a god-damned amusement park ! Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players ! We're in the boredom-killing business !! So if you want the Truth, go to God! Go to your Gurus ! Go to yourselves! Because that's the only place you're ever gonna find any real truth. You're never gonna get any truth from us. We'll tell you anything you wanna hear. We lie like hell. We'll tell you that, uh, Kojak always gets the killer and that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker's house and no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don't worry. Just look at your watch. At the end of the hour, he's gonna win ! We'll tell you any shit you want to hear !! We deal in illusions, man !! None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We're all you know. You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here. You're beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness you maniacs. In God's name, you people are the real thing ! We are the illusion !! So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I am speaking to you now. Turn them off! Solution. Howard Beale. Network. 1976. I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad — worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is: 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms' Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. 'Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get MAD!!! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot — I don't want you to write to your congressman, because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad !!! You've got to say ..... 'I'm a human being, god-dammit !! My life has value !! So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell ! I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!! I want you to get up right now. Sit up. Go to your windows. Open them and stick your head out and yell ! 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not gonna take this anymore!' Things have got to change but first, you've gotta get mad !!! You've got to say ...I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!! Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first, get up out of your chairs !!! Open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it - I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!! Welcome back Russell, we've missed you friend.

Adam curtis is great. Russell Brand is not.
rod dale (2 years ago)
I make no claim to personal greatness. I wanted to point out that just because Brand is a shallow, self-promoting, politically illiterate, bullshiter, does not mean that Adam Curtis is. People should not be put off Adam Curtis's films just because they are promoted on Brand's channel.
