This was an ad I made for The V-50 Lectures by Jay Snelson. I was inspired by Chuck Braverman's "History of America," which he did about 1967.
The point of this piece is that the growth of technology during the 20th century has been seized by the politicians to be used not for the advancement of civilization, but for war. It didn't work, though, to sell units.
The V-50 Lectures were an earlier version of OSG presented in a series of 16 three-hour lectures. People don't have that kind of attention span anymore unless they're into books on tape. Audible would be the best market for The V-50 Lectures, these days.
