Video: Paths of Glory | How Corrupt Leaders Destroy Our Humanity (& Good Ones Fight For It)

Humanity fluctuates with power, morality, and truth. There’s more than one way to be objectified.

Paths of Glory is a 1957 anti-war film co-written and directed by Stanley Kubrick. Set during World War I, it tells the story of a French regiment which refuses to continue a suicidal attack and its commanding officer, Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas), who defends three of his men against charges of cowardice in a court-martial.

Running time: 15 minutes.

This video is part of the series Empire of the Mind, an exploration of important ideas as they are presented in art, culture, and entertainment.
