Watched The Century of the Self – Part 4: “Eight People Sipping Wine in Kettering” by Adam Curtis
Final episode of Century of the Self. The culmination of psychoanalysis and public relations inserting themselves into politics, with Clinton and Blair basing most of their policies on feelings-based focus groups of swing voters. Selfish desires trumping feelings of altruism, denigration of welfare, individualism over society. The populace treated as needy consumers, not engaged citizens.

Really good documentary by Adam Curtis. Entertaining and informative.
