SUNDAY SCREENING: ‘Human Resources: Social Engineering In The 20th Century’ (2010)

Our weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.

This documentary explores the rise of mechanistic philosophy and the modern role of humans in technologically-driven society. The 20th century saw the introduction of the technocracy as an organizational framework, including behaviorism, scientific management, work-place democracy, schooling, frustration-aggression hypothesis and human experimentation. This systemization of mankind is a fundamental transformation in human experience – one which many people today are still struggling to articulate and understand. David Ker Thomson’s review of the film describes it as follows: “It answers the significant events of the last century the way a glass answers the implicit questions of a man who peers into its reflective surface, point for point. It corresponds, in short, to reality.” Watch:
