Empire of Illusion
The End of Literacy and the Triumph of SpectacleBook - 2009
Chris Hedges argues that we now live in two societies: One, the minority, functions in a print-based, literate world, that can cope with complexity and can separate illusion from truth. The other, a growing majority, is retreating from a reality-based world into one of false certainty and magic. In this other society,ʺ serious film and theatre, as well as newspapers and books, are being pushed to the margins.
