Youtube: Cargo Cults and Climate Change, now with added mea culpa

So, here’s the video

And here’s the mea culpa
The Abu Ghraib images are very shocking, and about military power (not that it doesn’t intersect with economic power!!) The images are so confrontational that they drown out the broader message – that we are not ‘civilised’ – in a way that pictures of sweatshops/maquialdoras would not. The video can easily be dismissed as “anti-American” when actually it is anti-smugness…. One lives and learns (you hope).
