This month we’ll be watching Adam Curtis’s three part documentary, The Trap: What Happened to Our Dream of Freedom? from (dusts off label) 2007!
Curtis examines positive versus negative freedom with examples ranging from the Austrian school of economics to R.D. Laing and anti-psychiatry to neoliberalism and the occupation of Iraq.
If you’ve never watched an Adam Curtis feature you’re in for a treat!
Barring finding a place warmer and more congenial we'll be meeting in Clark Park near the chess tables.
You can find the whole thing on YouTube (or elsewhere) - each part is three hours and we'll be discussing all three!
