DYSTOPIAS: FICTION AND FACT

In this latest video log, Andy Nowicki talks about the new movie The Giver, and analyzes the reasons why dystopian scenarios seem to be turning up with greater frequency in YA novels and big-budget movies these days. Is there a nascent fear of an actual dystopia rapidly sneaking up on us? Or are our rulers preparing the ground for a terrifying totalitarian future?

Then, switching gears back to the increasingly dystopic present, Andy discusses the recent travails of Gavin McInnes (the latest victim of PC cultural terrorism), and gently critiques Jim Goad's proposal to revel in mockery and contempt for the intellectually dishonest creeps who rule the current culture and want to shut up all us hearty, hateful, heretical dissidents – we who are keep interfering with their plans to utterly brainwash the populace with incomprehensibly silly ideologies.
