World Wars & Historic Memory, Part 1 & 2

A Tariq Ali lecture about the truth of World War One, the “bad war” the “wrong war”. He discusses the rise of the working class and Socialism, and the militarisation of Germany in an attempt to compete with the colonial empires.

A Tariq Ali lecture about how history can become distorted, instrumentalised and decontextualised when viewed from the ideological needs of today’s establishments. In part 2, he talks about how World War 2 came about, and the mis­representation of war past and present in the media and how we’re being led away from the truth.
