    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    This is the best series! It is an important thing to know and think about, how psychology can and will be used against people. Think about how many of your thoughts are you own. Do you know? Are you sure?

    The Century of the Self - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "To many in both politics and business, the triumph of the self is the ultimate expression of democracy, where power has finally moved to the people. Certainly the people may feel they are in charge, but are they really? The Century of the Self tells the untold and sometimes controversial story of the growth of the mass-consumer society in Britain and the United States. How was the all-consuming self created, by whom, and in whose interests?"

    Cheers for giving it a look, Heart.

    I've now changed the title to better appeal to the population's unconscious desires.

    Oh dang, colmena. I came for the sleazy Grade B movie and stayed for the education. Rascal.

    When I first became aware of this phenomenom it used to creep me out to think that somewhere there are very crafty people sitting around in rooms trying to figure out the best way to get us to buy potato chips.

    Hey! Just like very crafty people trying to lure us in to post?

    An INTP told me about this series on another board, maybe it was you!

    Anyway, this ought to be required viewing in school, it's that important.
