The Social Dilemma

The Social Dilemma ★★

The social dilemma is basically a confessional for this bunch of people who earned lots of money from social media engineering to atone for their guilt. A person who worked until 2017 at Google cannot pretend innocence, call himself ´´naive´´: you could do a whole analysis on how these people acted as bureaucrats in totalitarian regimes (or as executives of pharmaceutical companies).

The film sets aside some crucial aspects of the problem - widely explored by authors, especially non-whites -. After all, it naturalizes the very "soil" of the problem: capitalism.
