Outfoxed-Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism (documentary):

Wow! & wow again! It’s 2004, a year after the disastrous, consummately criminal illegal invasion of Iraq, that would go on to give the world IEDs, ISIS, thousands of dead, maimed & severely traumatised US & “coalition of the willing” troops, & obliterate an incredible country with an Iraqi death-toll of over a million civilians, millions maimed, & millions of refugees & displaced victims by this obscene warcrime.

An Ugly Truth-Inside Facebook’s Battle for Domination (Cecilia Kang & Sheera Frenkel):

It was a line of thinking that came directly from Zuckerberg. In Facebook’s earliest days, when their office was still a glorified loft space, “Company over country” was a mantra the CEO repeated to his employees. His earliest speechwriter, Kate Losse, wrote that Zuckerberg felt that the company had more potential to change history than any country – with 1.7 billion users, it was now in reality already larger than any single nation. In that worldview, it made sense to protect the company at all costs. Whatever was best for Facebook, whatever continued the company’s astronomic growth, user engagement, and market dominance, was the clear course forward.

… And What Do You Do? – What the royal family don’t want you to know (Norman Baker):

Why, and under what legal provision, was there a hearing in private to discuss the sealing of the wills? Why was seemingly no formal record of this hearing made public? Most of all, what does it say about our democratic and legal safeguards if a judge can subvert the law relating to the openness of wills by issuing a ‘practice direction’ to help the royal family, and then keep it secret that this has occurred?

Serve The People-making Asian America in the Long Sixties (Karen Ishizuka):

After growing up alien in a black-and-white world, we founded the home/land we never had and gave birth to ourselves as Asian Americans – a political identity based in the alternative universe of the Third World. As part of the worldwide revolution, we said puckyooo to racism, to imperialism, to assimilation, to white standards, to a failed democracy [America], to our own internalized boundaries and barriers, to everything that had kept us distanced from out sovereignty of our communal selves. And with this new voice we created a new world. With the power of new conciseness and new language, and ample doses of audacity and naivety, we created a new sense of community and culture with few resources and no experience – because until then we had nothing to lose.”

The Internet is Not the Answer (Andrew Keen):

The Libertarian fantasy of private companies usurping governments, is, I’m afraid, becoming a reality.

Companies are transcending power now. We are becoming the eminent vehicles for change and influence, and capital structures that matter. If the government shuts down, nothing happens and we all move on, because it just doesn’t matter.” Chamath Palihapitiya – Silicon Valley venture capitalists who’s Social+Capital fund includes Peter Thiel as an investor
