    Did you imply something about a “Workers Party” in some South-American country?…

    BTW, I noticed two interesting by-findings: first, Freud and his daughter Anna had some prejudices and tried to fit the data on them… Second: the most successful initiatives came from “marketing”; the whole psychoanalysis bunch were blind men searching for a theory that fitted their own prejudices…

    Last, but not least, I got a enormous anti-climax of the series… having read Vance Packard’s books in the 60’s. (Marcuse was a bore…)

    Another, btw: This documentary specifically cites “the egg in the cake mix”. Look what I found in “snopes.com” : Somethig Eggstra
