The Trap

Adam Curtis – The Trap

“Yes, Minister” is great, particularly in the Irish context – so simple yet almost always absent from mainstream debate – in that it shows that all decisions are made on the outcome of competing interests.   Like the Sale of Alcohol Bill will be shaped by the clout of the Pubs vs the Supermarkets rather then the ‘right’ or most effective policy.   Simon McGarr & TJ McIntyre talked of similar during the SOPA debate.   People who use the internet caught between the power of record labels and ISPs.   Or, of course, the McAleese Report where the State & Church sought not to make trouble for each other.

Further collusion against those women and the wider rest of us imo.
