Culture of war

I have been a fan of war movies a long time so I don't pretend to be innocent when it comes to being indoctrinated. As I was growing up I would hear stories from relatives and my dad about the European conflict. He was a teenager during those years.
Due to my heritage perhaps I was interested in why events happened the way they did. I was even enamoured with the whole nationalistic theme. The folly of youth!
Not until later did I start to realize the whole concept of propaganda involved! Now an entire industry is based on digital warfare entertainment. That's along with the daily scenarios updated by the talking heads on network television. Enemies are friends, friends are enemies. Who's to say?
Hopefully we can decipher this mess before we are led down a path of no return.
