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)

    those A. Curtis docs are good but he falls short of explaining how it goes beyond capital revenue for big business and techniques for gaining votes... these are methods and formula used down through the ages to move the herd into new pastures convenient for the global elite - albeit more sophisticated for the post-modern age.

    his appearance on C. Brookers screen wipe made it all sound very "look how we made you buy toothpaste in the 1950's" rather than "watch how you walk into your own CO2 footprint reducing gas chamber with a smug look on your face"...
