Five Steps to Tyranny documentary from 2001. The film explores the ideas behind tyranny and genocide, something that seems to have plagued the human race since the beginning. What causes people to change from civic folk to turning on their own neighbors?; how the unthinkable somehow becomes psychologically possible.
There are several obvious case studies that are made in the film, Rwanda, NAZI Germany and Armenia. It becomes clear that there are a certain level of stages of control that you have to induce upon the population before their psychology completely changes in favor of evil, this documentary explores what they are.
