"You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no Third Worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petrodollars, electro- dollars, multi-dollars, Reichsmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today." This text - pulled from the late Sidney Lumet’s 1976 masterful cinematic critique of the convergence of American media with finance capital 'Network', in which a ruthless media executive lays the hard reality of postmodern global affairs on the rogue broadcaster trying to expose some truth - perfectly distills the reality of the cultural landscape. All culture is propaganda. Everything you hold dear is connected to that which subjugates you.
