Century of Self
"This series is about how those in power have used Freud's theories to try and control the dangerous crowd in an age of mass democracy."
Edward Bernays ( The Father of Spin ), a nephew of Sigmund Freud, started to believe he was not only a keen observer of the public mind, but also the master of it. He even called it the "engineering of consent," and believed it was the moral duty of the intellectual elite - himself included - to manipulate the public mind.
In his 1928 book, "Propaganda," he wrote: "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country."
Oh so you say, I haven t been brainwashed!
Well, that statement, right there is the result of your brain washing!
