My mom's friend showed me this video a few months ago. Please watch:
I was reminded of this video recently while thinking about the power of technology and the media. While these actors use humour, and I-products to question the government's involvment in Iraq and Iran, hopefully this made us all question how we deal with other's properties and their business. We may not always know what is best for others if we are not already in their shoes.
This video, found on youtube, is accessible all over the world (unless it has been blocked by certain companies, countries etc) to anyone who wants to view it. It is named "Irack" and not "Iraq", possibly to cover any immediate or obvious name dropping. But, using the free site, youtube, and using a company product so well-known around the world, Apple, this video is accessible physically and technically to today's youth. Although the involvement of North Amerincan governments in the war in Iraq is not too new, it is constant and no longer get placed as top news in our papers and online. Today's youth may not even know what really happened if they were not old enough to fully understand what happend on 9-11. This video, using a medium "normal" to youth has explained this uncomfortable subject.
