Why we fight? Cause we are....
I just watched this movie "Why we fight" and I can't believe some of the stuff in here. Through the power of media, and the fact that war is now the main thriving economy, we create enemies, and destroy other nations, all in the name of freedom! We are all sheep. What can we do to stop our own nation? excuse me... empire from doing whatever the hell we want? Who do our "leaders" think they are? The truth is that the USA is behind, or part of almost every war that has happened in the past few decades. Eisenhowers farewell speech about the Military Industrial Complex is flooring. I can't believe that he saw this coming, warned our whole nation, and no one did anything about it. Our leaders are taking advantage of us, by using the media to exploit our feelings of patriotism, and our desire to maintian our freedom.

Has anyone else seen this movie? Does anyone else know what I am talking about?

Nick off. Shill.

PR companies and teenage shills beware. Did you get a free T-shirt from Sony, kiddo? Did they tell you to "act cool" and like one of the rest of us to make us think you're just a film fan with something to discuss? I'm guessing no, especially since this EXACT SAME POST has been spotted elsewhere...

No I didn't get anything from sony.  And no I am not some spam bot trying to steal your lunch money.  I just happen to frequent a lot of message boards, and I am a lazy typer.  Why don't you stop pointing fingers.

Wow, it took this movie for you to realize?  

In that case stay away from all documentaries because your brain will pop.

I'll stop pointing fingers if you're still around here posting meaningful stuff in a month's time. Lazy typer just doesn't cut it.

Look I am trying to form an opinion on where I stand politically, cause I have never had a stance.  I am getting to the point in life where I need to be more responsible for what I know.  Which is why I am starting to research our nations situations.  I am not trying to start a fight, and I am not specifically posting a thread that will cause controversy.  I simply like to bounce ideas off of people, and hear there takes on things, so I can formulate a better opinion myself.  I saw this movie, and I thought this would be a good place to discuss it.  Does anyone have an opinion that they can share with me?  whether it's the same, or completely different?

Sounds to me like you need to chat it up in another forum. This one is primarily for movies and entertainment.

Maybe your right.  I was just hoping someone here had seen the film, and could either tell me they felt the same way, or give me an oposing view.  The documentary was a lot more subjective than I make it out to be.
