The Century of the Self, 2002, Adam Curtis (Tv Mini-Series)

Edward Bernays on the industry he created.

btw, I highly recommend finding the time to watch Adam Curtis’ The Century of the Self.

Well worth checking out.

The idea that one should only buy what one can read and no more is so silly it makes me fall over just thinking about it.

‘Do you suppose it’s so much easier to make conversation with someone you already know well than with someone you don’t know at all primarily because of all the previously exchanged information and shared experiences between two people who know each other well, or because maybe it’s only with people we already know well and know know us well that we don’t go through the awkward mental process of subjecting everything we think of saying or bringing up as a topic of light conversation to a self-conscious critical analysis and evaluation that manages to make anything we think of proposing to say to the other person seem dull or stupid or banal or on the other hand maybe overly intimate or tension-producing?’

This 1970s paperback has been kicking around my collection since high school. I probably bought it after viewing “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” one of the first movies I was allowed to see in a theater without adult accompaniment.

This edition has a useful glossary. For example, the questing beast “has the head of a serpent, the body of a leopard, the buttocks of a lion, and the feet of a hart. From its belly issues the sound of thirty pairs of yapping hounds. It is never brought to earth.”
