Vlog Recommendation: Navigating Netflix

Media Monarchy is part of the circle of alt-media that includes Tragedy & Hope, The Corbett Report and BoilingFrogsPost, and in collaboration with The Corbett Report you'll find Media Monarchy doing New World Next Week on a regular basis. However, that's not all that Media Monarchy does, and what I'm embedding below is one of the ongoing features on offer with Media Monarchy: Navigating Netflix. The series goes into the use of fiction for propaganda purposes, something many of you will be familiar with in another context, but this context is that of Predictive Programming- a far more insidious version of Narrative Warfare than what we usually talk about.

This month on Navigating Netflix we're joined by Eric Mueller from the Tragedy & Hope community who's here to talk about 'The Hunger Games' film series. From brutal economics to child sacrifice, the films (and books) offer up a dystopic world that's like a behind-the-scenes version of 'The Running Man'. Are they a prescient look into our possible future as a "shattered union" - or just another blast of corporate agitprop?
