Shifting Baselines A Hollywood Version

Here is one defintion of the concept of the 'Shifting baselines'

A baseline is a reference point from the past---how things used to be. If we allow these reference points to shift, we loose track of our standards, and eventually accept the degraded state as being 'natural'.

Are we experiencing this in New Zealand?

In California a group of film makers have done a brilliant job of bringing this very serious issue to the public by producing a series of comedy short films with Hollywood actors volunteering as cast.

Go to the Shifting Baselines Video Site and see these amazing films.
