Adam Curtis

Now that I have gotten the hang of attaching videos to this blog, I have decided to devote one post to the main works of one of the most important informative producers of the modern western generation, Adam Curtis. I am in awe of the researching and composition capabilities of this man, and indeed his productions have helped to fill in much of my understanding of modern history. Forget Michael Moore, spend a few hours listening to what Adam Curtis has to say.

Century of the Self









The Power of Nightmares







The Trap

The Origins and Nature of Sociality: A brighter, more hopeful look at humanity by research scientists looking into our innate collaborative, and altruistic higher capacities, here is a new and profound look supporting our ability to "Get Along" rather than the B.S. about inner beasts (freud) and survival of the fittest (darwin). In a nutshell, though the book is complexly research oriented: Darwin was wrong! And, Nice Species survive first...
