It is chilling to see how the authoritarian regimes across the world made use of mass media in the run-up to WW2. I can only imagine the level of sophistication current PR has reached with use of special effects, machine learning (e.g deep fakes) and much bigger and faster reach through the internet.



_Triumph of the Will_ is the most influential movie ever made. Watch it. You will see scenes copied by literally hundreds of other movies, even today. All the emotions ever associated with the rise of the Nazis are expertly captured in that film. Yes, the content is literally horrific, but we should learn and recognize how effective such tool can, and will, be.

So - Hollywood has _always_ been a cesspool of degenerate narcissists? Good to know that some things never change.

The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse is consider by many to be the best silent film made. I even stole the Tango scene to make a YouTube music video to FleetwoodMac Tango in the Night.

Could you make a episode out of europeans who returned to europe during the interwar years.
They often changed their countries culture and society.
Sometimes they had sad fates like the finns who went to soviet Karelia.
