Information Revolutions Precede Social Revolutions: 2

Let me explain the concept proposed in the previous part of this series with a famous example- The Zapruder Film.

Prior to the mid 1950s, ownership of personal movie cameras (ye old style camcorders) was restricted to the rich and obsessed. However post-ww2 prosperity and technology made 8mm movie cameras a fairly affordable and widespread occurrence.

Ask yourself one question- could the beginning of widespread american disillusionment with their “elites” have occurred without such clips, photos, recordings along with the means to record and transmit them?

Think about it.
