War Made Easy is a 73 minute documentary based on Norman Solomon's book of the same title. It explores the propaganda fed to the American people by the government and the media when the President decides to go to war.
There is a bi-partisan focus on the wars of Johnson, Nixon, Reagon, Clinton, and the two Bushes. Basically, the marketing of the wars have used pretty much the same propaganda techniques.
This is a film which should be part of the curriculum in every High School in the United States. Also, every citizen should see it.
It is excellent and I highly recommend it. It gets 5 out of 5 stars.
UUs are supposedly studying the proposal that Unitarian Universalism become a peace church. It is very difficult for me to see where war has any place in our postmodern world. Peacemaking is very consistent with our Unitarian Universalist principals.
War will not save us and this idea that people who serve in war are noble and furthering our salvation is a lie from the devil. It mystifies me how gullible people are to believe the deceit of Satan that wars will save us.
