"You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no Third Worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petrodollars, electro- dollars, multi-dollars, Reichsmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today."



This text - pulled from the late Sidney Lumet’s 1976 masterful cinematic critique of the convergence of American media with finance capital 'Network', in which a ruthless media executive lays the hard reality of postmodern global affairs on the rogue broadcaster trying to expose some truth - perfectly distills the reality of the cultural landscape. All culture is propaganda. Everything you hold dear is connected to that which subjugates you.

This podcast System of Systems, hosted by a couple of sad bois - millennial failed artist and cultural critic Adam Lehrer and zoomer writer/musician Will Samson - deconstruct art, culture and politics, and attempt to understand the pervasive conformism that has saturated it all.

    PREVIEW DECA DYKE

    PREVIEW DECA DYKE

    Shortly before Adam's journey to Japan, he and Matthew discuss two trashy arthouse thrillers from the past and present: Ingmar Bergman's 1980 made for TV movie From the Life of the Marionettes and Rose Glass' 2024 bodybuilding lesbian romance thriller Love Lies Bleeding.

    From the Life of the Marionettes is a disturbing slow burn of a masterpiece – restrained and haunting in equal measure. Love Lies Bleeding, however, takes a good narrative conceit and then destroys it with every Tumblr millennial girl trapping: shallow Lynch wannabe surrealism, style suffocating substance, and an obnoxious girl power message. It also owes Adam royalties.

    PREVIEW Welcome to Helltown (W/ Edward Giles and Max Julian Eastman)

    Conceptual artist, musician, and founding member of iconic NYC power electronics group Final Solution, Edward Giles, joins the Safety Propaganda network. The primary topic is the reissue of Edward's industrial project Helltown Inc on former guest Max Julian Eastman's label. The release not only comes with hours of music, art inserts and otherwise, but a memoir of sorts in which Edward recounts the underground culture of New York of the '80s. Edward and Max discuss the release of Helltown Inc and Edward discusses his history in art, losing his friends and bandmates from Final Solution, and his overall viewpoints about the modern world.

These guys are dope. Keep it up

fckcryptoneolibs ,

appreciated.

appreciate the content, but the background sounds/music provide too much dissonance.

Hiphopopatmus ,

Good Content but fix your audio mixing

At times, I could hardly hear the discussion because the music was too loud.
