The Power of Nightmares


Should we be worried about the threat from organised terrorism or is it simply a phantom menace being used to stop society from falling apart?

In the past our politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares.

The most frightening of these is the threat of an international terror network. But just as the dreams were not true, neither are these nightmares.

In a new series, the Power of Nightmares explores how the idea that we are threatened by a hidden and organised terrorist network is an illusion.

It is a myth that has spread unquestioned through politics, the security services and the international media.

At the heart of the story are two groups: the American neo-conservatives and the radical Islamists.

Both were idealists who were born out of the failure of the liberal dream to build a better world.

These two groups have changed the world but not in the way either intended.

Together they created today's nightmare vision of an organised terror network.

A fantasy that politicians then found restored their power and authority in a disillusioned age. Those with the darkest fears became the most powerful.

The rise of the politics of fear begins in 1949 with two men whose radical ideas would inspire the attack of 9/11 and influence the neo-conservative movement that dominates Washington.

Both these men believed that modern liberal freedoms were eroding the bonds that held society together.

The two movements they inspired set out, in their different ways, to rescue their societies from this decay. But in an age of growing disillusion with politics, the neo-conservatives turned to fear in order to pursue their vision.

They would create a hidden network of evil run by the Soviet Union that only they could see.

The Islamists were faced by the refusal of the masses to follow their dream and began to turn to terror to force the people to "see the truth"'.

If you want to find out the terrorist are a figment of the governments imagination than this is a great film but it fails to address the actual 9/11 incident for what ever reason. Maybe it's because 9/11 is another story that needs more indepth analysis, but it does have great insight from the governmental stand point of their agenda and the fact they will stop at nothing to acheive their goals, like shreading our constitution and bill of rights in the name of safety and security which in itself is a falsehood. It doesn't address who's responsible directly for 9/11. Great work!

60234 This Documentary has it nearly correct, but the fundamental point is wrong in episode 2. The conclusion is that the Jehad and the Neo Conservatives were working against each other, this is wrong. They teamed up, and pulled off 911 as it was an inside job. Thanks to the hard work of the Neo Conservatives.
The Documentary has shown clearly what happened when the Jehad's ran to the end of there race, they turned visions and broke all there own rules, they became what they accused there enemies of. They murdered the people they were saving.

No different are the Neo Conservatives. The old saying birds of similar feather flock together. Now with the Jehad movement the perfect enemy for the Neo Conservatives and vise versa, are now both working together, they both get what they want.

The Neo Conservatives can create all the fear they were dreaming of and control politics religion and money.

What do the Jehad movement get, they get what they wanted a war and a reason to focus there failed ideas, to give reason for there murdering of people etc... and a great enemy that they toppled.

So what we have are two fanatic movements wanting the same things how about that. It is really evil and brilliant.
interesting

The Documentary has shown clearly what happened when the Jehad's ran to the end of there race, they turned vicious and broke all there own rules, they became what they accused there enemies of. They murdered the people they were saving.

No different are the Neo Conservatives. The old saying "Birds of similar feather flock together."

Now with the Jehad movement as the perfect enemy for the Neo Conservatives and vise versa, but the twist is they are now both working together, they both get what they want.

The Neo Conservatives can create all the fear they were dreaming of and control politics, religion and money.

What do the Jehad movement get, they get what they wanted a war and a reason to focus there failed ideas, to give reason for there murdering of people etc... and a great enemy that they toppled. As the Documentary stated, they believed they bought down Russia, so who is next, these guys after all have to live up to there reputation.

So what we have are two fanatic movements wanting the same things how about that. It is really evil and brilliant.
