Once again we shall probably be unplugged and slathered with California Baby, the only non toxic and effective suntan lotion for a couple of weeks, that is if we don't manage to hook up somewhere Starbucksy, which is always a possibility.

You might have time on your hands, since there won't be any clickies to click around here. With that in mind, we thought you might enjoy watching Adam Curtis's BBC documentary on the modern concepts of freedom, "The Trap - What Happened to the Dream of Freedom" in its entirety. It's certainly something worth contemplating as we slip silkily into a police state right here in our very own Homeland. Interviews with luminaries like Isaiah Berlin and R.D. Laing are sprinkled throughout.

It's in pieces.

The Trap - Episode 1

The Trap - Episode 2

The Trap - Episode 3

The Trap - Episode 4

The Trap - Episode 5

The Trap - Episode 7

Finished already? Watch Curtis' "The Power of Nightmares", which you will have to pick through Google Video to find for yourself.
