Documentary: “The Century of the Self”

The Century Of The Self – Part 1

–a fantastic documentary, via Brain Pickings. This BBC documentary recounts the history of Freud and how his theories came to influence Nazi propaganda, advertising, political campaigns and modern life at large. The production and conspiratorial-toned narrator crack me up and remind me of Chris Farley’s Coffee Crystals SNL skit, but the information conveyed is prescient, shocking and frighteningly accurate. Also check out parts two, three, and four.
