thought maybe

shared on fb by Bruce.

from their about page (but just go there and read the whole thing):

About Us? This is really about you…

Why are you here? What are you looking for? Information on the implications of globalisation? How banking really works? The rapacious machinations of advertising and how this affects children, the media and hence social control? How about the links between Indigenous rights, racism and police? Or how technology affects the natural environment? Or the pertinent and interlinked issues of population, ‘endless’ economic ‘growth’ on a finite planet, combined with the reality of peak oil, energy collapse, food, housing, climate change, dodgy politicking, corrupt governments and corporatocracy in this age of screen-controlled propaganda bubbles and a surveillance culture of scientific precision never before possible? And what to do about all this?

This website is a collection of films that aims to provoke your thoughts not only about these important issues, but many other pertinent topics relevant to modern society, industrial civilisation and globalised dominant culture.

There’s already a lot of information on the Internet pertaining to the complexity, so our goal is to cut through the noise and garbage, and try to present valuable information in a clear way, so it’s accessible, useful, and easily digested. This still may not be an easy undertaking though, and we can understand that—especially considering the interconnectedness of the issues, as well as the crossing over of sources and perspectives; but also for the fact that the information here can be incomplete, sometimes contradictory or even controversial. But this is the point. It’s all part of what we’re trying to do: provoke critical thinking, questioning, but above all… doing.

be swimming here a while.
