The Century of the Self

The Century of the Self is a 2002 British television documentary series consisting of 4 episodes.

The legacy of famed psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud informs the lives of people throughout the world even to this day, though it’s a phenomenon to which most are unaware.  The Century of the Self, written and produced by Adam Curtis, is an exhaustive examination of his theories on human desire, and how they’re applied to platforms such as advertising, consumerism and politics.  This four-hour odyssey is divided into four distinct segments.

NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education

In 1967, the National Education Association decalred war on the American people. Its executive secretary proclaimed: “NEA will become a political power second to no other special interest group… NEA will organize this profession from top to bottom into logical operational units that can move swiftly and effectively and with power unmatched by any other organized group in the nation.”

Today, that prediction is a reality. The 1.7-million-member NEA is the most politically powerful — and dangerous — organization in the United States with plans not only to control the federal government but also every state legislature in America. Under the guise of “improving education,” the teachers are on the march toward total political power with the aim of converting America into a socialist society.

The Politics of Obedience

La Boétie cuts to the heart of what is, or rather should be, the central problem of political philosophy: the mystery of civil disobedience. Why do people, in all times and places, obey the commands of government, which always constitutes a small minority of the society? To La Boétie the spectacle of general consent to despotism is puzzling and appalling.

— Murray Rothbard, from the Introduction

States are more vulnerable than people think. They can collapse in an instant—when consent is withdrawn.

This is the thesis of this thrilling book. Murray Rothbard writes a classic introduction to one of the great political essays in the history of ideas.
