Comment: The First 20 Minutes of "Century of the Self: Happiness Machines"



This is a seriously good show. It's going to take me a while to get through, but in just the first few minutes I learned about:

  • The connection between WWI propaganda and the birth of modern advertising, marketing, branding and public relations
  • How "public relations" got its name - as a better-sounding substitute for propaganda
  • How Freudian theory was used to sell cigarettes to women

If any of this sounds good, I highly recommend watching this show. I'll keep posting comments as I watch it.


All opinions my own.
