Hello ATS, i have happened across this documentary titled "The Century of The Self." So far, i have only watched the first 58 minutes of the documentary earlier today, and i feel that ATS needs to see this. It describes Edward Bernay's role in shaping our society and political ideology of Democracy into what it is today. In other words, Edward Bernays (who applied Sigmund Freud's work) was fully responsible for the consumer mindset of today's societal norms.

He was employed from big businesses, to the President and the CIA over the course of his life...all for the use of what we can effectively call mind control.

Again, i have only watched the first bit, so don't be too harsh on me


Here it is:

Just watched the opening/skipped around, trying to make sure I'm not about to re-watch 4 hours of it only to then realize that I've either seen it or seen parts from other videos (I'm a youtube documentary freak, and they're all overlapping these days haha)

The name sounded very familiar, and I still can't tell why.

Between this video and the last thread I was in about free will, and strengthening the Will, I think I am on a path of taking back my mind, and then... The WORLD!! Or at least just my mind.

Be back in awhile, when I've watched more.

EDIT:
Just got past the Let's make women smoke how do we do it? There is a taboo that men don't want to see women smoking. The cigaret is a penis, it is the symbol of man's power. "Let's make the women want to take over some male power of their own, then the women will have a penis too. Call it lighting torches of freedom. Then the men can't be against it, not with that frase..


This stuff is crazy.. I never thought about it this way.. I'd have to be a pychoanylist to even notice half the mind control..
Interesting.

Adam Curtis (born 1955) is an English film maker. His best known work is The Century of the Self (2002), a film that explores consumerism and the Freud dynasty. He says, "My favorite theme is power and how it works in society".[1] He claims that his work is journalism that happens to be expounded upon through the medium of film.


I would recommend watching the complete collection of his as they're most insightful.

Oh goodness! I've never met anyone who didn't know who Sigmund Freud was! I guess he must not have been such a big influence in Peru then!
He was the father of Psychoanalysis.

(From Wikipedia-)

Sigmund Freud; 6 May 1856 – 23 September 1939), born Sigismund Schlomo Freud, was an Austrian neurologist who became known as the founding father of psychoanalysis.

Freud's parents were poor, but they ensured his education. Interested in law as a student, he moved instead into medicine, undertaking research into cerebral palsy, aphasia and microscopic neuroanatomy. He went on to develop theories about the unconscious mind and the mechanism of repression, and established the field of verbal psychotherapy by creating psychoanalysis, a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient (or "analysand") and a psychoanalyst.

Though psychoanalysis has declined as a therapeutic practice, it has helped inspire the development of many other forms of psychotherapy, some diverging from Freud's original ideas and approach.

Freud postulated the existence of libido (an energy with which mental process and structures are invested), developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association (in which patients report their thoughts without reservation and make no attempt to concentrate while doing so), discovered transference (the process by which patients displace on to their analysts feelings based on their experience of earlier figures in their lives) and established its central role in the analytic process, and proposed that dreams help to preserve sleep by representing as fulfilled wishes that would otherwise awake the dreamer.

He was also a prolific essayist, drawing on psychoanalysis to contribute to the interpretation and critique of culture.

Psychoanalysis remains influential within psychiatry and across the humanities, though some critics see it as pseudo-scientific and sexist, and a study in 2008 suggested it had been marginalized within university psychology departments.

Regardless of the scientific content of his theories, Freud's work has suffused intellectual thought and popular culture to the extent that in 1939 W. H. Auden wrote, in a poem dedicated to him: "to us he is no more a person / now but a whole climate of opinion / under whom we conduct our different lives ..."

Most people are just too plain stupid to understand the implications exposed in this documentary.

Im guessing 90% to 95% of people on this site wont understand the severity of what being explained in this documentary.

Seen this years ago and its my "go to" video to wake people up.....if they are ready.
