>why is it so expensive to get psychiatric services, but you can turn on the TV and have psychologists fuck you up for free

That's fantastic!

I watched The Century of Self about five years ago, but I still find myself referencing it in conversations about advertisements and political talking points. Definitely worth a watch.

Adam Curtis is pretty amazing. You can't really dispute, people admitting to their crimes on camera. It is hard to make a documentary like that, if you tell the people that is what you are doing. BBC archives can tell the whole story much better.
