Lest we forget: In our pursuit of ‘progress’ we have created the destructive path in the pursuit of plenty
Simon Schama’s History of Now, BBC2: An earnest appeal against political apathy.
‘Simon Schama explores how filmmaker Charlie Chaplin and author Ayn Rand created radically different visions of how the new post-war world should work. Meanwhile, writers like Rachel Carson drew attention to the damage being done to the natural world. Simon talks to author Margaret Atwood about how Carson inspired her own work and photographer Edward Burtynsky about his photographic projects with haunting images that capture the push for consumerism.’
Last night (11 December 2022) I watched a very inspiring, informative and educational documentary presented by historian Simon Schama on BBC2. What I watched was the third episode in the three part series History of Now.
The first episode was on Truth and Democracy. The second was on Equality and the third which is the subject of this posting was on The Price of Plenty.
