    This is a thread for philosophy, psychology, cosmology, anthropology, sociology, economics, history, education, climate and environment, prohibition, wars and empire, politics and similar videos/lectures/debates.

    Update 14/10/12 - Due to the documentary thread being deleted. Documentaries are now allowed.

    Please don't post any documentaries from the mainstream TV that are in the form of a TV show.


    Ill start by posting two videos.

    This guy has made some good videos, you should check out his videos on marxism and feminism, very interesting. Sure to offend a few people... Always like to have my opinions challenged.



    Peter Schiff makes some very informative videos and if you look through his channel you can view some interesting videos on economic related topics. Check out his channels videos.

    You say no full docs, but then post a 1:12 vid? As long as there's a decent description of the vid people can choose whether to invest the time or not.

    EDIT:

    I'm always looking for documentaries on interesting subjects, so it might be nice to have a few recommendations.

    An obvious one for Education.

    11-12 minutes long documentary about how public education is not shaping up in this century.



    Perhaps the OP could be a conduit for these videos, obviously categorised and put in spoiler tags to lessen the load?

    That was a lecture not a documentary. I made those basic requests so it doesn't full up with documentaries, because that is not realy what I was looking for from the thread. There is already a documentary thread and i know people would end up posting discovery channel rubbish etc.

    If someone thinks a description would help then add one. But they don't have to, ill take it that if someone posts a video it is interesting enough and if is not my thing ill just close it.

    The Case for God (Rabbi Sachs and guests including Colin Blakemore, Lisa Jardine, Alain de Botton, and Howard Jacobson)

    ...i think just all documentaries or clips that people have watched and found informative could be posted here. Good idea!

    Milton Friedman on freeing up the media industry.


    Free to choose series 10 parts with a short introduction by Arnold. Free to choose a video series on economics that I can't recommend enough. They should show this too school children!

    American Enterprise Institute fellow Charles Murray discusses his controversial new book, Coming Apart, about what American was, is, and will become.

    I am not an advocate for class based classifications but he raises some interesting points.

    TED - Great mix of technology & ethics.

    RSA - A little more political than the above but plenty of good material.

    Qualiasoup & Theramin tree's (youtube channels) - Religion, logic, critical thinking, death, transactional analysis (I'll add the video links when I get back home) - or somebody is free to beat me too it ;).

    The entire RSA animate series is a great short vid on a variety of subjects, guessing from one of the above descriptions (youtube blocked so can't see any vids here atm) you already have the Ken Robinson talk on education.

    Also Sam Harris on "The illusion of free will" is most definitely a must watch.

    The people in that documentary don't have extreme or hateful views, but the left act like they do. They can't debate anything, they just call them names and threaten them.

    From reading previous posts you made, are have a warped & twisted view of reality.

    You feel no sympathy over the massacre of children, blame the left for Anders Breivik & think you can generalise "the left" the way you do.

    I doubt you even know the first thing about what left wing ideology is even about.

    But back on topic, it's already been side-stepped by flame-bait/flawed post with a "OMG STUPID LEFT LOL" style message.
