Mark Corske's Engines of Domination (2014)

OUT NOW! NEW IMPROVED 2018 DIRECTOR'S CUT VERSION: WATCH IT HERE.

Political power -- armed central authority, with states and war -- is it part of human nature? Is it necessary for human communities? Or is it a tool that ruling elites use to live at the expense of communities? A tool that does violence to human nature and the world?

Engines of Domination offers a theory of political power as a tool for making tools of human beings -- an engine that converts human energy into authority and privilege for the rulers. Invented in the Bronze Age, brilliantly refined for six thousand years, today the engine has caused a human emergency that threatens to destroy our world.

This documentary makes a powerful argument that there is only one way to save the future. Armed central authority must be abolished, giving way to a world of peaceful voluntary communities -- in other words, an argument for anarchism.

Everything Engines is now available in one spot, from interviews with Mark Corske, translations of the film, to trailers and the feature itself!
