the best democracy money can buy

a disturbing (but strangely niche) read for anyone interested in what we settle for when accepting that democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others. Haven’t come across much that added anything to this eye-opener that entered my smorgasboard of influences maybe a decade ago. This documentary does.

Its Stanford prison experiment feel makes it painful to watch. What it tells you about democracy even more so. Haven’t seen many stories with so many layers of meaning.

By way of introduction it deserves either a long and thorough analytic expose or silence. Silence seems better, because something visual that leaves me so  speechless can not be embellished by, should not be tarnished with, whatever my petty mind may come up with if I would make the effort.

About roger henke

Still figuring out the story line that would satisfy myself here. Listening to what my family and friends evoke, what the words I absorb, the images that move me, the movements that still me, point to.
