Hyper-Normalisation – The Fake World Humanity Has Retreated Into
H yperNormalisation is a 2016 film by BBC documentary by British filmmaker Adam Curtis. In the film, Curtis argues that since the 1970s, governments, financiers, and technological utopians have given up on the complex “real world” and built a simple “fake world” that is run by corporations and kept stable by politicians.
HyperNormalisation wades through the culmination of forces that have driven this culture into mass uncertainty, confusion, spectacle and simulation. Where events keep happening that seem crazy, inexplicable and out of control—from Donald Trump to Brexit, to the War in Syria, mass immigration, extreme disparity in wealth, and increasing bomb attacks in the West—this film shows a basis to not only why these chaotic events are happening, but also why we, as well as those in power, may not understand them.
We have retreated into a simplified, and often completely fake version of the world. And because it is reflected all around us, ubiquitous, we accept it as normal. We cannot longer change the world because we lack an alternative narrative grounded in reality.
We lack an encompassing narrative about the future because we live in an isolated reality created by the managerial principles/techniques governments have used to hold onto power. Ironically, that ‘s rendered political power NOT meaningless, but unmanageable (as truth is no longer distinguishable because of these same managerial procedures/algorithms feeding us whatever we want, without distinction between truth and lies), giving an opening to anti-establishment politicians to seize it. They can say whatever they want.
So, it backfired. Just like suicide bombing backfired in the Arab world. Instead of defeating the US, it’s torn apart the Arab world itsef. Lies are the suicide bombing of the West. They have torn apart the political establishment that once used them.
Note: There is a pretty important one minute missing at 9 min 14 sec, exactly when Adam Curtis starts describing how artists and the counter-culture movement, generally, also missed the mark.
“They believed that instead of trying to change the world outside, the new radicalism should try to change what was inside people’s heads and the way to do that was through self-expression, not collective action. But some of the left saw that something else was really going on–by detaching themselves and retreating into an ironic coolness, a whole generation was beginning to lose touch with the reality of power.”
