The format of documentaries is manipulative, wins awards, and the people who consider themselves intelligent free thinkers suck it up. It’s an emotionally manipulative format.

Misleading crap. It’s not that bad things don’t happen everywhere – of course they do. But you see a documentary produced in the documentary way, and it ends up filtered down into stuff like…

Memes that encourage Bigotry and other things, but mostly some kind of bigotry.

Here’s another thing that documentaries do:
a) They report about something you know little about.
b) They report about something that has information sources you’re not likely to find.
c) The person/people they are slanted to make you hate, “are going to lie to you, so don’t ask them for information”.
d) So you can now only trust the documentary maker.
