    "There is actually quite a good argument that there are cold compassionless machines that change the world around us in their own image. They are called corporations", he explained. "We shouldn’t necessarily worry about A.I. as something that will come along and change everything. We already have these organisations that will do that"

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (2003)


The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

(Spanish: La revolución no será transmitida), also known as: “Chávez: Inside the Coup,” is a 2003 documentary focusing on events in Venezuela leading up to and during the April 2002 coup d’état attempt, which saw President Hugo Chávez removed from office for two days. With particular emphasis on the role played by Venezuela’s private media, the film examines several key incidents: the protest march and subsequent violence that provided the impetus for Chávez’s ousting; the opposition’s formation of an interim government headed by business leader Pedro Carmona; and the Carmona administration’s collapse, which paved the way for Chávez’s return. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised was directed by Irish filmmakers Kim Bartley and Donnacha Ó Briain. Given direct access to Chávez, the filmmakers intended to make a fly-on-the-wall biography of the president. They spent seven months filming in Venezuela, following Chávez and his staff and interviewing ordinary citizens. As the coup unfolded on 11 April, Bartley and Ó Briain filmed on the streets of the capital, Caracas, capturing footage of protesters and the erupting violence. Later, they filmed many of the political upheavals inside Miraflores, the presidential palace.

  • Famous Quotes In History

    "I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology....Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated."
    -- Bertrand Russell in The Impact of Science on Society  
     
    “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
    – Julius Caesar
