Ok, I’m back… After watching the first episode, I have one burning thought to add to Jimmy’s reflections…
I was struck how in the initial episode and in the trailer, the creators were framing their narrative within the overarching narrative of ‘will to power’. That is, I believe that one of the cultural narratives pushed on us is that everyone is out for power. It is the primary motivating force, and no one is immune from it. Therefore, we have to be constantly on our guard, even against those who claim they don’t want power.
This doc. seems to fit that narrative and works to reinforce it.
I am aware that power is the DC vibe, so it’s not surprising that those who are that close to it can’t help but be influenced and corrupted in some way by its pull.
I’m interested to see how they develop the narrative further, so I’m sure I’ll post again at some point. Have you seen it, @bracherbracher?
