This documentary examines how Freud’s theories of the unconscious have been used to manipulate the masses- the way politicians & capitalists collided to transform the uncertainty and chaos of democratic society into the consumer society that we have today, based on radical individualism. It’s fascinating. It’s super long but never boring.
