The Surveilance Society


A potentially interesting movie to watch, if you get your hands on it – The Lives of Others

A review:

The Lives of Others is a deep condemnation of socialism in all its forms. The usual grounds for rejecting socialism are economic: state control of the economy cripples it, and generates poverty rather than prosperity. The Lives of Others suggests a different reason for believing that it is not (as apologists for socialism frequently maintain) just an accident or a conspiracy of capitalist states that explains why “real existing socialism” always ends up so drab, dismal and depressing. It is rather an inevitable consequence of the way power in a socialist society is organised.

Scooped off the FDR forum.
