If you wonder why HBO ect keep churning out world war two series such as Band Of Brothers and Pacific, then wonder no more. What was the last just war fought by the US? Yes lots of adventures since then need to be expunged from the collective psyche especially now at times of totally unjust wars of choice and slaughter. But even worse wars of choice and slaughter that are being lost; that are catastrophic defeats.
The structures and institutes need the soporific effect of propogandizing this away into a better more easy to sell kind conflict so that a collective notion of the justness of the nation and its military machine can be created even if this defies any reality beyond that created in the psyche of a governmental, military or propagandist organization. Convincing and controlling is of paramount importance compared to letting people know what is really done in their name.
