The regular Adam Curtis fare
19 December 2015 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

Adam Curtis seems to cater to conservatives. Anything that has to do with scare is good. And technology is usually even better. I have no idea if Curtis is carefully building up the myth of the white lab coat mad man with thick glasses ready to blow up the world or if Curtis really believes and actually tries real hard to uncover the conspiracy of the imaginary crazy scientist.

Anyway, his ability and effort to drive the fairy tale as far as possible to serve his purpose is impressive. Here, in less than three minutes he can tell the story of the "plantation owner" just missing the insignificant detail of slavery. And the plantation owner is just taking a woman as mistress. Oh, can you imagine the easy black girl ready to sleep with anybody just for a career advancement? Only there is no career. And there is no consent. The girl/woman is owned and can't give consent. But why bother with all this? A girl falls in love with a rich and much older entrepreneur, right?
