Hero of the Hour: Christoph Waltz on the selfie generation

Section:

In sharing his views on Facebook and the dangers of the Internet, Bond villain Christoph Waltz speaks utter sense

Despite being the star of the moment given his role in the latest Bond film, SPECTRE, actor Christoph Waltz declared that he prefers life in the shadows in an interview with The Telegraph’s Stuart Husband on Wednesday.

In the feature, Waltz also shared his views on Facebook and the role of the Internet in the facilitation of the rise of such things as Isis. He stated:

 

The fact that Facebook presents facial recognition programmes as a desirable development, well, that in itself is a decisive step toward fascism, as far as I’m concerned”.

 

I recently came across a quote from Voltaire: ‘A man who can present absurdities as believable can convince you to commit atrocities’. These days, an algorithm can do that. Look at Isis – without the internet they wouldn’t exist in the same form. The Internet didn’t create them, but the Internet facilitates them. And as we know from history, the facilitation is more dangerous than the cause, because the cause can be dealt with, but the facilitation is elusive”.

 

Waltz has a point and unlike many of his vain colleagues, he has realised the dangers of social media. For that we salute him and for that we make him our Hero of the Hour.

    1. Waltz is a bright man and one of the most charismatic actors of our time, he simply makes any film he stars in, even if he is cast in a supporting role. Inglorious Bastards and Django are two examples. Can’t wait to watch him in the new Bond.

    2. Take the trouble to Google the following –
