The Hottest Trend out of Hollywood: “War Sells!”
In this day and age, “selling war” on the big screen has become a vastly lucrative enterprise, and business is booming
This past week, television broadcasters worldwide have been particularly enthusiastic in celebrating a glorified image of war and violence as promoted by big media and the film industry. Last Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony generously bestowed its highest accolades on films (unsurprisingly produced by the West) that effectively and insidiously distort the truth on armed conflict and feed large demographics completely biased and inaccurate views of war theatres around the globe.
What the corporate-funded Hollywood propaganda machine counts on is that not only will the broad viewing public buy into its invented “truths”, but that in doing so the idea of war – in particular the absurd oxymoron of “humanitarian war” – will come to be increasingly accepted by a populace growing more and more numb to the violence being splashed across its screens.
We are being programmed to believe in lies and that the road to peace is through war.
In the words of Dr. David Halpin:
“‘The vortex sucks forever louder’. The Project for the New America strides on. Populations become more inured to the killing and the shredding. ‘No mother and child should be in the least harmed, anywhere in our still beautiful world’ are not the thoughts of most leaders, especially those in the US/UK/Israel axis.
