Pope Francis insists in a new book things will never be the same in a post-pandemic world, calling instead for a “new world order.”
Thanks, will give it a watch. Like you say, even if there is the possibility of a bias, the information still holds up.
Adam Curtis talks about MK Ultra and the emergence of the conspiracy theory movement in America between 53:55 and 1:05:15. It is the first part of a six-part documentary, 'Can't Get You Out of My Head.' It glosses over the more gory details, but it gives an insight into why these movements emerged at the time they did, and what the people who started them hoped to achieve. It puts them into their historical context and gives you the bigger, zoomed-out picture. @Just following orders, you are right, the filmaker does have his own bias (we can't be sure to what extent the BBC had a hand in shaping the ideas in the film), but I would still recommend watching it, since it provides some very valuable information that you might not find elsewhere. It takes different historical narratives that you would not ordinarily think were connected, and ties them together to present a fascinating story about how people and politics have changed across the last century or so.
