The Power of Nightmares

Another excellent BBC documentary series from Adam Curtis, writer of The Century of the Self is The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear, describes how those who seek power invoke fear in the population in order to present themselves as the rescuers. "All men are rapists and that's all they are" is a good example of that tactic in use.
