I found these documentaries a while back and decided to share them with the rest of whoever is paying attention to this blog.

All the links below are by a Documentarian by the name of Adam Curtis, who works and produced all of the below at the BBC, and has won numerous awards. The running thread in all these films is how elites have used various theories to pacify, and control the masses to either success, failure, or sparking unforeseen results.

I dare you to watch them...

The documentaries are all free to download through a great site called, which you might want to check out as it's full of neat stuff you won't find elsewhere.

First up is The Trap: What Happened To Our Dream Of Freedom?
This is one of the most recent, and thus most timely of the docs, and very enlightening.

The we have The Power Of Nightmares. This one is a personal favourite, and will pick up what you think of islamic terrorism, shake it about, and kick it in the trash.

Next is The Century Of The Self. A great four parter that shows how psychology has been used to get you to buy things, and to obey the government, or they try...

The Way Of All Flesh is a freaky one episode doc about how they replicated a woman's cancer cell 50 years ago, and over time, now weighs over 400 times the woman's body weight! (If you put all the cells in one place that is).

The Mayfair Set, shows how the elite of England tried to use economics to remain an important player in world affairs after the end of WWII.

The Living Dead is not a zombie film, but a documentary about how history can be used to trap people into repeating it.

Pandora's Box is a great big 6 part documentary examining the unsuccessful attempt to use science to find a rational means of ordering society after WWII.

Well there you go, I hope you enjoy them.
