Notes

Audio history of the 20th century politics and warfare. JB (Josip Broz) aka The Master, a historical leader of an utopia-like socialist state (Yugoslavia), teaches ethics to the biggest liars in human history aka The Crooks (J.F.Kennedy, J.Stalin, Edgar J.Hoover, Yasser Arafat among others). A crook himself and one of the biggest liars and political illusionists, JB represents a man telling the right things with a wrong intention. Slogans like “world peace”, “democracy”, “human rights”, “liberty”, “freedom” etc. sound pretty cynical in the mouths of these historical figures. The central part of this sonic tale are the main issues of 20th century politics: the cold war, middle-east conflict and the atomic bomb. Much to learn from the mistakes and little hope that it will happen.
