A new video is uploaded, referring to short clips from a BBC-biography cast presenting Bill Gates . The presentation here is titled
Tragicomedy of Capitalism Today – A bit of Gates-Peeling
and looks with the reference to short excerpts from the film at some of the socio-cultural dimension of the tragicomedy.
— Tiny aspects – still, if it is true that we are witnessing a fundamental and deep-far reaching change of the ways we produce ad live together, it may be worthwhile to reflect as well a bit on the generational shift and on who this self-appointed avant-garde is.
The five sections are musing around the following items:
- Predatory and Tributary Aspects of Capitalism Today
- Alligator Capitalism
- Cultural/historical heritage without inheritance tax
- Sense of public service or missionary capitalism?
- On horses, cars and Microsoft computers
It is a bit of ‘slow reading’ of the sign of apparently turbulent times.
