The Century of the Self

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. 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. Happiness Machines. The Engineering of Consent. There is a Policeman Inside All of Our Heads, He Must Be Destroyed. Related:  Documentaries

Metaphilm. See through cinema. 2012 – Burzynski – Cancer Is Serious Business | Equal Money System Cancer indeed is a serious problem worldwide and it seems that instead of being eradicate, the disease is only increasing. One should start asking questions like: How is it that we haven’t found a cure for cancer yet? How come, we don’t know what causes cancer? Why cancer is common in the west and less common in the east of the world? How much money the drugs companies make from those who are suffering from cancer? Why the common treatment for children that have cancer is poison (Chemotherapy) and it is still allowed even though it was proven to do much more harm than good? How come we accept for granted that frying your brain with Chemotherapy is allowed even though it has only a few percentage of success? The documentary “Burzynski – “cancer is serious business” is a very good example for how ignorant we have become and how we are allowing our lives to be compromise through blindly believe what the media and the drugs companies are telling us. How many of us heard about Burzynski treatment?
