Jean Baudrillard's "In the Shadow of the Silent Majorities or, The End of the Social"
Please note: I mistakenly said that this book follows Simulacra & Simulation when, in fact, it precedes it. I got mixed up with the translation date and original date. Please keep this in mind when I speak about the relationship between the two texts. In this episode, I tackle Baudrillard's "Silent Majorities" to present his primary ideas concerning the media and the masses, and the relationship that they have to one another. Moreover, he takes an interesting stance on the role that terrorism plays in both, paradoxically, consolidating and resisting the repressive mechanisms of the media and the masses.
