another session of social engineering
29 December 2017 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

These social engineering lectures from Hollywood and disguised as western shows would have been more enjoyable to western aficionados as well as more significant for the social activists if they were not so much over the top. The ending also made no sense, it looked like they just ran out of material and had to wrap it up.
