Is he fear mongering as well? I think if I were to follow Baudrillard's sytems of objects, than I might be able to argue that these objects presented in this video are fear mongering as well. In my research into propaganda, I learned that comedy is always an excellent medium for transmitting new memes. So, while on the one hand I see that this guy may be mocking the system, on the other I can see that he also could be part of it. Hard to know, but just want to leave all options open.

Trying watching this video with the audio muted. What do the object say?

If we are nothing more than a collection of our synapses, as Joseph LaDue says in "Synaptic Self", then what are these visuals doing to us?

Try it and let me know your thoughts.

His sarcasm is gone, silent it becomes terrifying.

Yup, terrifying.

Look at Jean Baudrillard's System of Objects, then re-evaluate the imagery. They know what they are doing, and they're using supposed counter system channels to do it. All vectors are targets.
