Russell Brand on The Social Dilemma

Keywords: media , psychology , ape , apes , human , humane , humanity , language , monkey , monkeys , natural language , populism , primates , propaganda

Many insightful remarks about the new Netflix documentary from Russell Brand — but in my humble opinion he overlooks something very significant which distinguishes us from other primates: the fact that humans evolved in a way that allowed us to develop the technology commonly referred to as natural language. This technological innovation also allows us to remain independent of the brand name platforms repeatedly mentioned in the film (which may actually be a kind of advertising / ad placement).
