I just got back from seeing the first two parts of the documentary. 
I'll be seeing the last two on Wednesday night, and hopefully meeting 
some of you.

Very good stuff which echoes much of what I've been reading and 
thinking recently. I am reminded of Chomsky's 'Thought Control in a 
Democratic Society', the title at least, since I haven't read any 
Chomsky... yet. It was interesting to see how long it has been known 
how to control and manipulate a society, or how long it has been in 
conscious practice. A good compliment to 'The Corporation'.

I'm interested in finding out if the last two parts of 'The Century of 
the Self' discusses more about the tools that deliver the messages, 
such a television.

This is definitely a must see and discuss. Thanks for sending it to the
