there's the first of an interesting sounding series on bbc2 tonight at 9pm called 'The trap - what happened to our dreams of freedom'

its from bafta award winner adam curtis (who also made 'the power of nightmares') so anybody who has already seen that will know that this will be amazingly researched, thought-provoking and very, very interesting, (unlike the recent conspiracy files series)

the bbc blurb says .....

A series of films by BAFTA-winning producer Adam Curtis that tells the story of the rise of today's narrow idea of freedom. It will show how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today's idea of freedom. This model was derived from ideas and techniques developed by nuclear strategists during the Cold War. It was then taken up by genetic biologists, anthropologists, radical psychiatrists and free market economists, until it became a new system of invisible control.

so if you get the chance to, watch it!
