HISTORY

Century of the Self : Nearly a 4 hour education module on the history of how we got to where we are today.  Break it up into 30 minute to 1 hour segments to make it easier if needed.


Interesting connection between Edward Bernays and Sigmund Freud.

Someone recently posted they found out that Eddy Bernay's relative (not too sure, but maybe nephew) Colonel Murray Bernays, was the one responsible for framing the Nuremberg Trials! 

Churchill wanted no trial and Stalin wanted a show trial, but Bernays suggested that the trial give the 'impression' of democracy; something the new burgeoning US Empire needed to maintain the moral high ground. It could be just a coincidence, I don't know. But it's an interesting coincidence if true!

Certainly may turn out to be a most interesting bit of research should you want to know more.
