Honors 11: The Yes Men and “Why Johnny Can’t Dissent”

We finished The Yes Men film clips today from their first doc., and we watched their second 2009 doc., titled The Yes Men Fix the World. We discussed the films and the Yes Men. First hour only got through Clip 2 for the YM2 and second hour through clip 1 as of Wednesday. We will start reading a Thomas Frank piece titled “Why Johnny Can’t Dissent” Thursday for Friday from the 1997 book titled Commodify Your Dissent from a journal based in Chicago titled The Baffler. You only need to read the first 5-6 pages. We will then discuss synthesizing sources and continue the conversation Friday.
