The Power of Nightmares

A couple of weeks back, I posted about the BBC program called The Power of Nightmares. It traces the origins of two fundamentalist groups: "neoconservatives" and "Islamic jihad" and shows that they share backgrounds, both philisophical and real. It goes on to show how these groups have shaped our politics and our fears. The series began airing on the BBC on October 20th. You can find a transcript of the first episode along with a bit torrent to download it, here. Highly recommended.
