Alex Gendler: how to recognize a dystopia

"The genre of dystopia – the 'not good place'– has captured the imaginations of artists and audiences alike for centuries. But why do we bother with all this pessimism? Alex Gendler explains how dystopias act as cautionary tales – not about some particular government or technology, but the very idea that humanity can be molded into an ideal shape."

Agora: From Democracy to the Market by Yorgos Avgeropoulos

"Το ντοκιμαντέρ του ΓιÏŽργου ΑυγερÏŒπουλου «Αγορά» (Agora), συνθέτει ένα ανακεφαλαιωτικÏŒ χρονικÏŒ της κοινωνικής τραγωδίας που μαστίζει την Ελλάδα την τελευταία πενταετία, θέτοντας κρίσιμα ερωτήματα για μια παγκÏŒσμια συστημική κρίση σε εξέλιξη και μία ευρωπαÏŠκή διακυβέρνηση που διεξάγει οικονομικά πειράματα υψηλού ρίσκου χωρίς να υπολογίζει το ανθρÏŽπινο κÏŒστος."

(ΓιÏŽργος Ρούσσος, 10 Ιανουάριος/January 2015, TVXS)

Translated using Google Translate: "The documentary of George Avgeropoulos "Buy» (Agora), composes a summary chronicle of social tragedy plaguing Greece the last five years, posing critical questions for a global systemic crisis in progress and a European economic governance carried out risky experiments without count the human cost."

Pilger's message to white Australia cannot be dismissed

"Mainstream Australia has long lacked a real education about Aboriginal people, about our shared history, and this nation's brutal past. Fortunately, there's a simple way in–an opportunity to get a 'punter's guide' to the truth about the treatment of Aboriginal Australians."

(Sol Bellear, 2 March 2014)
