Today, Hitch might be horrified—but not surprised—to see the ravages of media on the fabric of our society. In this video, I depart somewhat from the usual Hitchcock geekery to examine how media itself has made our generation more susceptible to conspiracy theories, and what we can do to stop it. Have fun!
Here are a few works referenced in the video.
The video was primarily inspired by two books by J. F. Martel:
Reclaiming Art in the Age of Artifice: A Treatise, Critique, and Call to Action
Reality Is Analog: Philosophizing with Stranger Things
YouTube: This Is Marshall McLuhan: The Medium is the Message
Article: McLuhan in Playboy Magazine (If you've not read McLuhan, this is all you really need)
