The Century Of The Self Full Length Documentary - Freud, Bernays, Mass mind Control



The Century of the Self


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. 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. Along these general themes, The Century of the Self asks deeper questions about the roots and methods of modern consumerism, representative democracy and its implications. It also questions the modern way we see ourselves, the attitude to fashion and superficiality.

Happiness Machines. Part one documents the story of the relationship between Sigmund Freud and his American nephew, Edward Bernays who invented Public Relations in the 1920s, being the first person to take Freud’s ideas to manipulate the masses.

The Engineering of Consent. Part two explores how those in power in post-war America used Freud’s ideas about the unconscious mind to try and control the masses. Politicians and planners came to believe Freud’s underlying premise that deep within all human beings were dangerous and irrational desires.

There is a Policeman Inside All of Our Heads, He Must Be Destroyed. In the 1960s, a radical group of psychotherapists challenged the influence of Freudian ideas, which lead to the creation of a new political movement that sought to create new people, free of the psychological conformity that had been implanted in people’s minds by business and politics.

Eight People Sipping Wine In Kettering. This episode explains how politicians turned to the same techniques used by business in order to read and manipulate the inner desires of the masses. Both New Labor with Tony Blair and the Democrats led by Bill Clinton, used the focus group which had been invented by psychoanalysts in order to regain power.

"The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry"

“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, to all bravely await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.”

I wish I had enough karma to put a green pin on this. I'm glad a did a search before making a new thread on this topic :)

I saw this video just before the Presidential election of 2008 and it changed the way I see everything. After watching the attempted crucifixion on CNN of Breitbart.com's editor, I was reminded of this documentary and its importance. If you haven't watched it or have never heard of Edward Bernays, I urge you to watch this video and learn.

Anybody making a martyr out of Breitbart, or focusing all their anger at CNN for being evil media, didn't understand the documentary at all.

In fact, they have fell for the Freudian mind control.

Re: The Century Of The Self Full Length Documentary - Freud, Bernays, Mass mind Control
I just watched these movies last night. Interesting stuff.

So one thing I noticed is that Bernays and Frued had this concept that people are controlled by their wild emotions and couldn't be trusted to control their own destiny. Instead the corporate elite had to guide them and control them to ensure that the desired results would happen. How well did that work out. I think it's clear to see that the elite are no better, their own irrational and emotional nature which is just as bad as any common man, has led us down a path of corruption and self destruction.

This is the problem. They were right, people are stupid emotional animals capable of terrible things, but where they were wrong was in thinking that they themselves were somehow any better just because of their social standing on the pyramid of power. Unfortunately power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Were just bouncing between Anarchy and Tyranny.
