it's funny, but when i saw the thread i went in and immediately wanted to comment on the "anti-Freud" philosophy and science of Wilhelm Reich!! i came in and someone beat me to it (which is so great and in many many ways why i always come back to NR forums!!) well, i have to say i watched both of the series of docus mentioned here and they are both tremendous. the century of self is just so incredible to see how brainwashing is so effective and all pervasive in western culture!
well, as all things come in threes, let me add another series to this list. and would you guess it is also by Adam Curtis?
The Trap: What Happened to Our Dreams of Freedom? (Part 1)

Anyone can probably navigate to the other two parts if properly inspired and motivated!
I just have to think when i see things on mass manipulation and social controls, how far we have digressed from the true meaning of personal freedoms and liberated souls. i mean, we really are living more like a large amoebic mass of living cells on the surface of the earth. kind of gross like slime-mold or something where all the varied parts are living to be just like the next cell. any aberrant cells treated like cancer and are attacked and rejected by the mass. how much could we Be if only each person, each soul, realized their own unique self-sovereignty? how much more can we realize if we understand how that self is reflected in the Whole and vice versa?
well, i hope everyone has time to check this series out at some point and share with others. these are all shared in bit torrent as well if you would like a better quality copy to burn on DVD! (it's the only way i can get others to watch some of these videos!)
