Russell Brand has once worked for the TV show Big Brother. He uses his past as a Big Brother employee to compare how the government and the politicians are like the production company who created Big Brother. Once a horrible situation took place in Big Brother while Brand was working there. The production company did all they could to hide the situation, which included deleted scenes etc. Russell Brand compares the production company and the government because he means that the government also tries to iron out the situation with the riots. There are neither at the production company or the government interests in to give a thorough explanation. “Police were called, tapes were edited and the carnival rolled on”. The real explanation of the incidents at Big Brother was not allowed to get out in the public. The incident was quickly made up, so a fake history came out because the public could not handle the truth and so things quickly could get back to normal. Brand compares this with the riots and the government’s ability to handle the riots. Even though Big Brother was watching you 24/7 everything was 100% legit. So does Russell Brand mean about the government. They control everything and they are watching you, but the things that get out in public are just not 100%

    Also the people who lived within the government didn’t get the right information about their history because the government controls what they tell their citizens. The government is dehumanizing its citizens because they want to ensure they have total control over the people without the citizens knowing what is really happening. The government is dehumanizing their citizens by forcing them to call each other comrade instead of their real names.

    Johnson had a large influence in the media. Johnson introduced the “credibility gap” in his time of presidency, caused by his inability to speak honestly to the country about overseas occurrences (Dallek, “Lyndon Johnson”). Therefore, Americans could not truly tell what was really happening. With the credibility gap, Johnson tried to keep public discussion away from the war in order to keep attention on his reforms as he believed conservatives would kill his proposals (Dallek, “Lyndon Johnson”). As stated by Robert Dallek, “he escalated the war without consulting those who would have to fight and support it.” This shows that the president’s altered information resulted in a lot of disapproval of those who really had to go through the war.…

    However, there is one thing present in Milgram’s social experiment that can be found here: blind trust in authority. While this certainly isn’t everyone, since riots did break out in multiple places after many of the aforementioned deaths, an overwhelming amount of America has refused to even consider the idea of institutional antiblack racism in the police force despite overwhelming evidence of its existence. Since childhood, much of America has been socialized to see the police as people who could help us when we didn’t know what to do. We were told that if we were ever lost, not to go up to a stranger, but a police officer, who we could trust. Police officers have always been authorities to us; just like Milgram found, we can do ridiculous things in the name of pleasing authority, like assume that it was the unarmed teenage boy’s fault that he got killed, not the fault of the grown man who fired the thing.…
