Ever wondered why most of us seem to be stuck in a never ending dream that the majority call reality?

Ever wondered why or how we ever got in this mess.

Then I hope this following information helps you to shed some light on these questions.

It most certainly allowed me to see deeper into our current situation and allowed me to look over all the recent events of our lives from a new perspective.

"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

Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, changed the perception of the human mind and its workings profoundly. His influence on the 20th century is widely regarded as massive. The documentary describes the impact of Freud's theories on the perception of the human mind, and the ways public relations agencies and politicians have used this during the last 100 years for their "engineering of consent".

Among the main characters are Freud himself and his nephew Edward Bernays, who was the first to use psychological techniques in advertising. He is often seen as the "father of the public relations industry". Freud's daughter Anna Freud, a pioneer of child psychology, is mentioned in the second part, as well as Wilhelm Reich, one of the main opponents of Freud's theories.

I know the full length film is available on the net to watch as I've watched it but at the time did not bookmark the link.

This next clip is a very clever little video.
