The Century of Self

The Century of Self is a four part documentary series produced by Adam Curtis.

“This series is about how those in power have used Freud’s theories to try and control the dangerous crowd in an age of mass democracy.” – Adam Curtis

However this quote doesn’t do the series any justice. It profoundly tracks the hisory of our current consumerism lifestyle and it finds its roots.

It is a must, for any who wish to step out of the system and even for those who don’t understand why they should.

It is available legally online for free at by various providers. Here is the first episode.

My thanks to Philip Carr-Gomm, www.PhilipCarrGomm.wordpress.com, for bringing it to my attention.
