Following on from previous reblogged post Infantizing the Nation…  by  Kitty Jones:

For those of you interested it the psychology of boarding school culture and indoctrination, which is at the heart of our government, corporations and media, the following youtube vids are very insightful and thought provoking, although the BBC documentary is hard to watch in one go, (at least for those of us who haven’t been groomed in this way during our own childhoods).  see links below…..
