Arkan Posted December 11, 2005 Share Posted December 11, 2005 ...good movie, overall. Entertaining to say the least. I love the propaganda aspect of it. But something bothers me about the movie. Other than the fact that there would be no movie if it wasn't for the mobile infantry, why would we go to war like that? Wouldn't we Nuke the alien planet to cinders before we dared set foot on the planet? "Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." - Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials "I have also been slowly coming to the realisation that knowledge and happiness are not necessarily coincident, and quite often mutually exclusive" - meta Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
