Fanning, Rory. "Why doesn't the US observe Armistice Day? We're more comfortable with war than peace." The Guardian (November 11, 2015) ["I get angry and frustrated with each Veterans Day because it’s less about celebrating veterans than easing the guilty conscience of warmongers."]

The Virtual Revolution (BBC: Aleks Krotoski, 2010: four 60 mins episodes) ["20 years on from the invention of the World Wide Web, The Virtual Revolution explores how the Internet is reshaping almost every aspect of our lives. But what is really going on behind this reshaping? The founding father of the Web, Tim Berners-Lee, believed his invention would remain an open frontier that nobody could own, and that it would take power from the few and give it to the many. So how do these utopian claims stand today? Have the possibilities of the technology been constrained purposefully by corporations and distorted by government?"]
