July 21st, 7:30pm: Part 2 of the Century of Self Series, "The Engineering of Consent"
CODEPINK San Jose will show the educational movie, Part 2 of 4 of the Adam Curtis' acclaimed series of the rise of the all-consuming self against the backdrop of the Freud dynasty,"A Century of the Self"
We will show Part 2 of the Century of Self series, "The Engineering of Consent", at the SJ Peace & Justice Center, Tues, July 21st.
“The Century of Self: The Engineering of Consent” is the second part of the award winning documentary by British documentarian Adam Curtis. Whereas his first episode provided insight to the origin of consumerism, this second installment illustrates how in post-WWII America, many came to believe that the basic animal instincts, as theorized by Sigmund Freud, were the root cause behind the rise of Nazism. Thus, in order to prevent the “animal” ever being unleashed in the future; academics, corporations and governments sought a way to manipulate and “domesticate” the human animal.
