An Animated History of Taker Culture in 4 Minutes
4.5 · 16

Self-described civilized man, belonging to the culture known as the Takers. What an extraordinary creature. He has walked on the moon and created the worldwide web that connects billions of people like us right here. But there is a darker side of Taker culture, a history that tends to remain unseen. A side that gets brushed over. YOU may actually be a part of it. Do you want to be? Time to open your eyes to the history of Taker culture in this animation by Steve Cutts.

 +++ Please rate and/or comment. Thank You ^_^+++ 

 

Films For Action note: One will wonder why "civilized" man has behaved as he has over the last 10,000 years, and for the best explanation we would recommend this book:

Daniel Quinn is the author of many works including The Story of B, My Ishmael, and Beyond Civilization. His first book, Ishmael, was published in 1992. Since its release as the winner of the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship, it has gone on to great success, and been read by millions.

 


The man in this video does not depict humanity, but one culture among thousands who have lived on the Earth. This man belongs to a culture known as the Takers, named so in the book by Daniel Quinn above. For the short explanation, read this.


Uploader note: If this video disturbs you it should, because this seriously goes on. (Not literally the exact representations from the video, but I hope you know what I'm getting at.) I hope you wouldn't want to be a part of this. Please consider going vegan to help drastically reduce this. Info can be found on my profile as well as other videos I have uploaded here.. <3
