Caught this fantastic documentary at Cinema Village in NY. In short, it
traces the tremendous influence of Freudian ideas and the family Freud
- Siggie, Anna, and nephew Edward Bernays - on the development
contemporary capitalist societies.
Using chilling footage and lucid voice over, it traces the methods by
which Freud's discoveries about the sub/unconscious mind were
systematically implemented by corporate America in the 1920's and later
the U.S. government to increase their wealth/power while at the same
time giving people the impression of greater personal freedom. It was
Bernays who founded the 1st public relations firm and coined the term
Its thesis spans everything from the invention of public relations,
modern advertising techniques, Nazi Germany, CIA brainwashing, the
self-help movement, consumer culture and current U.S./British electoral
politics. All of which have direct antecedents in the ideas of Freud.
Apparently, due to lack of copyright clearances, it is not available on
DVD or tape. But hopefully it will make the art house circuit. His
follow-up, The Power of Nightmares, is supposedly even better. It deals
More comprehensive and persuasive than "The Corporation" and more
objective and grounded that Michael Moore's work, "Century of the Self"
is essential viewing.
If you think corporate and government collusion in controlling the
masses is tin hat stuff, well, start measuring your head...
