Do a search on YouTube or Google Video for

THE CENTURY OF SELF by Adam Curtis, a British documentry maker

It's about how governments brainwash people into compliant puppets

The documentry is in 4 parts and each episode is about 1 hour long

You'll need a whole evening to watch it

It might sound rather off topic but it'll give you a valuable insight into how governments and tha media control people and stifle freedom. Essentail viewing for Ron paul supporters!!

i liked his 'the power of nightmares', and i watched 'the trap', though the latter bent my mind backwards with it's distorted thinking despite bringing up almost every libertarian idea only to confuse things

Adam Curtis's documenteries really seem relevant at the moment with the media trying to wrestle Ron Paul off the radar screen

The Century of self docus are older than The Trap and the Politics of Fear but frighteningly prescient none the less
