in a world full of simulations the virtuality of the world we think things are real but they aren t these are synthetic environments what has happened at the end of 20th century we have gotten rid of reality and we only live in these virtual environments 0 Simulations make us not the other ways around Eg Disney Land we know it39s not real main street is meant to connote this nostalgic feel the irony is that there were similar main streets simulation that sort of existed but sort of did not Baudrillard experience of Disney land visitors know it39s a fake and it39s not a real world once you know this and you leave back to real life you should actually exit the simulation you should enter reality but this does not happen we are still in the simulated environment of Disney land 0 We behave how others want us to behave Marx o Alienation this perpetuates capitalism and don39t realize how exploitative we are 1 alienated from you worklabor 2 Alienated from products of labor 3 Alienated from self creativitypotential do your job and that39s all that matters ln capitalism someone always decides what you are going to do work with what you39re going to do always decided by someone else Production you39re a producer in capitalism Baudrillard production isn39t as important as consumption 0 You immerse yourself into the imageryproductsadvertisemen ts in a dream world and don39t realize how captured you are in the situation 0 You are designated a shopper by the simulation around you you take on a position as a shopper so you take on that role Politics works in a similar fashion it39s about selling an image signi er without a signi ed part of that is to sell the imagery of potential and potency of someone who doesn39t say what they are going to do but they seem to have a lot of potential Enron Darrel Issa putting together funds to run a clipboard petition campaign trying to nd things on the Obama administration bin ghazi commission realized with gray davis39 situation
