I just finished watching this documentary and thought it was really interesting. It is about how corporations/government use Freud's ideas of psychoanalysis to get people into buying stuff they don't need and to control them.

Here's the link to the documentary if anyone is interested

Here's some info on the documentary from wiki

"There's Jimmy Page, the greatest thief of American black music who ever walked the earth."

Thank god it's not Zeitgeist, I was reaching for my high horse.

haha nah, I found way too many mistakes in the Zeitgeist to name it an "amazing documentary"...btw, this is a 4 part documentary and each part it's like an hour long, i just finished watching the second part so that's the one i posted

Oh, sweet. thanks for the link man.
I just had my philosophy final this morning so I'm definitely interested in anything Freud/Satre/Skinner related.
A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

Oranges are actually a revolution though - they're the next step from Rectos IMO.

The religion section of Zeitgeist made me laugh my ass off. Not in the making fun of it way.

That sure was worth watching. Thanks for that.
The singing at Jolnachoj in the Chiapas segment hit me in the heart (see username )
