I had this documentary pointed out to me by numerous people. It's a fascinating look at how the world's financial and political systems were affected by ideology, computers, and Ayn Rand.

It's simplified, obviously, but I agree with all of the major points. Absolutely fascinating. I'm very grateful to the BBC for producing stuff like this.



Original post on Dreamwidth - there are comments there.

Have you seen his other works? The Century of Self is especially fascinating.

Nope. I had heard that The Power Of Nightmares was good.

I wanted to watch that last night but, being down at the Boss's place, we were subjected to his missus' TV preferences so it was soaps and Super Size Ambulance! I could feel the brain cells throwing themselves against the inside of my skull in a suicidal mass-protest.

At least there's iPlayer.

is this not visible to us across the puddle? how are we to educate ourselves?

I appreciate your prowess. Thank you.
