No Logo: Brands, Globalization, Resistance

 

No Logo explores how corporations have adapted to increasingly negative public perceptions of capitalism & globalization by imbuing themselves with branded identities to assimilate the masses.  The film presents the controversial consumption of public space by corporate advertisement as maximizing the indoctrination of all consumers by brand bombardment; the increasing elimination of consumer choice as indicative of ownership consolidation; and the degradation of work conditions & employment opportunities as the predictable outcome of neo-liberal globalization.  Ultimately, the brands and their symbols have become targets of protesters who resist neo-liberal globalization.

Rich Media, Poor Democracy

 

Gain an in-depth comprehension of how media consolidation impairs and threatens democratic processes.  In Rich Media, Poor Democracy Robert McChesney & Mark Crispin Miller describe how the pressure to constantly increase profits in the newspaper, radio, and television news industries motivates advertisers & shareholders to pressure news firms to weaken investigative content and define many topics as off limits.  Consequently, while the quality of information degrades as the news becomes more sensationalist, the ability of news media to adequately inform audiences is minimized beyond the extent necessary for the maintenance of healthy & effective democracy.

Iraq Confidential:       The Untold Story of the Intelligence Conspiracy to Undermine the U.N. and Overthrow   Saddam Hussein

 

Expert details and disturbing insight are the hallmarks of this story of intrigue and deception.  Read it from the pen of the U.S. military officer responsible for the U.N. weapons inspections of Iraq's arsenal throughout the decade prior to the 2003 U.S. war and subsequent occupation of Iraq.  Iraq Confidential draws the reader to the logic that the 1991 U.S. attack on Iraq never ended.  Instead, it continued with a decade of withering sanctions, while the U.S. disingenuously  "cooperated" with the U.N.'s Iraq weapons inspections, eventually completely betraying the inspections just as they were proving Iraqi compliance.   The 2003 war commenced immediately afterwards.
