Introducing Sociology

Following on from the themes brought up at BLCKDGRD today, especially that of the moral corruption of our elite, I thought it might be nice to give credit to Stanley Kubrick's underrated film Eyes Wide Shut, which seems to track the contours of our particular decline very well, even if decline and moral corruption are far from unprecedented events. Whether you feel tempted to (re)watch the film or not, the excellent essay, "Introducing Sociology", that assisted in my own re-appraisal of the film, is really, really worth your time.
