With reference to the very ending of the video, having knowledge and being ABLE to meaningfully use it are two different things. The closing line in “3 Days of the Condor” really says it all: “How do you know they’ll print it?”
Indeed. Then how does anyone get that knowledge out broadly and sufficiently enough in order to create that power? The propaganda machine has been honed very, very well. And the people have “learned.”
(Anyone that hasn’t seen “3 Days of the Condor” is missing a truly prophetic movie. With Redford, no less – who’d have thunk it!. Regardless, it’s brilliant, and just as relevant today as it was over 40 years ago. That closing line is the deeply chilling conclusion to the movie, and has proven accurate time, after time, after time.)
