Blog #4 (Liberation Technology and The Estrangement of Production)

So, I had to read this article called “8 reasons young Americans don’t fight back: How the US crushed youth resistance” and I do agree with some of what was said in the article. Like how young Americans just accept the fact that they are going to have a lot of debt by the time they graduate college. I know I kind of have even though I try not to take out as many loans. I also agree with the TV being part of a way to crush the resistance in youth because TV does kind of not make you able to concentrate later, but the part I disagree with in this is that it does depend what you are watching. Like for instance, the videos of the remade super bowl commercial. If you haven’t seen it, you can do so here.

This is the original commercial

 

This is the remake

 

This, in my opinion, doesn’t hinder resistance in young Americans. It’s a way of having more control of what they watch and have more control over what they can do with that media. With the technology theses days people don’t have to take things as is. They can have discussions on whatever social media they choose.
