The Trap is a series of 3 hour-long programmes created by Adam Curtis. they are basically like reading a book. in the trap curtis uses archive footage to make his argument about the modern concept of 'freedom' and its basis in political action abroad aswell as our social interaction. some of its abit hobbesian while other parts border on anarchistic. basically its fucking dope and will make you clever. also look for this other series The Power of Nightmares, also on google vid which draws parallels between islamist extremism and neo-conservativism. dudes legit. ALSO he did a piece for charlie brookers newswipe about what he called 'oh-dearism' which will blow your mind its so spot on. watch and then kill yourself cos the world is fucked.
