Obey–Film Based on Chris Hedges’ Death of the Liberal Class

This is a film based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

It was made completely of clips found on the web.

Music by Clark (warp.net/records/clark)

Warning - this film contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.

  5. Is it possible to be both an independent artist and a banker?

    Art knows no boundaries. Whereas, at present finance presumes to define and dictate every conceivable threshold of life.

    Perhaps money should be understood as an ethical instrument, simply a functional agent, subordinated to integral qualitative values ~ a lubricant that underwrites social coherence; perhaps it could be conceived as akin to a symbolic nutritional necessity, like anciently embedded heritage rice, or some equivalent guarantor of measurable, sustainable biodiversity and life support. Possibly it can be reduced to a practical medium of global exchange, even identifiable with an elemental prerequisite of wholesome life, like pure water or fresh air.

    Some banks actually do operate on such principles, like Triodos for example.
