The Power of Nightmares - Film about American illusions

Postby zacb » October 13th, 2012, 6:04 pm

I have been watching a great movie called The Power of Nightmares. It examines the rise of neo-conservatism and radical Islam. It is a real eye opener. You can download it on Bittorrent since they don't air it anymore.

It's on YouTube. Wow it's really long.

Description:

Adam Curtis' enlightening and frightening 2004 doc series from the BBC.
This one gets into radical Islam and the American neocons.
These are more reasons to look deeper into our leadership and our policies, as citizens of the world.

one of the best documentaries you will ever see! from wiki: "..it argues that the threat of radical Islamism as a massive, sinister organised force of destruction, specifically in the form of al-Qaeda, is a myth perpetrated by politicians in many countries—and particularly American Neo-Conservatives—in an attempt to unite and inspire their people following the failure of earlier, more utopian ideologies."

Another great film by Adam Curtis.

The Trap: What Happened to Our Dream of Freedom?

Description:

This is another brilliant Adam Curtis documentary originally produced for the BBC. It talks about the modern political realities, where the policies came from and the massive failures of those ideals and how they have ended up exactly where they did not want to be.

This episode focuses on the 1990's and how the politicians decided to apply the model of a free market economy to the rest of society and consequences of these actions being felt all over the world in western democracies.

Very interesting. I came across it on Btittorrent, and decided to download it. The other sounds rather interesting as well.

You're just now seeing it??? Its on the Internet Archive as well (www.archive.org), you can download it there.

You should also watch Century of Self that explains the reasons why we have a culture of materialism and selfish behavior. Its also on the archive where you can download it.

Bittorrents will give you higher bitrates, video quality and screen resolution.

Did you know that in the third part of the film, Al Qaeda is revealed to not even exist as a terrorist group, but is just a concoction of the Bush Administration as a boogeyman?
