The Power of Nightmares

I’ve just finished watching the final episode in a three part BBC documentary about modern politics and the use of fear to increase politicians’ power and control over society. It is called The Power of Nightmares and it was much revealing going through the American conservative depiction of the threat initially from the Soviet Union and then from Islamists.

"The Power of Nightmares assesses whether the threat from a hidden and organised terrorist network is an illusion. In the concluding part of the series, the programme explains how the illusion was created and who benefits from it."
