The media has always been a tool for the ruling classes to secure their power. Nowadays our social activities are more controlled than ever. There seems to be no way out of the Social Media Platforms that keep us “connected”, “informed” and available.
Simple methods from propaganda have been borrowed to catch the public’s attention. The use of pop-culture references and aggressive colors is deliberate. Power has always used propaganda to serve its own rights. The Cost Of Privacy uses it to better the rights of those who hold a passive power, a power that has been discovered, but not embraced. Its is a call to collaborate on creating the communicational platforms of the future with privacy in mind.
We promote community.
We feel love for all beings.
We are imagining the future.
