Re: Thankyou Steven Spinberg - Another Hollywood Psy Op Masterpeice!
War Of The Worlds is such a specific piece of Propaganda that it deserves a little more attention.
I just watched it again.
At the expense of appearing like a "pick pocket" who only see's "pockets", it is FULL of subtle and overt propaganda which is designed to promote war and maintain the average Americans enthusiasm for conflict.
Spielberg is trying to get across to Americans that the current battle against terrorism, is EXACTLY like WW2. The Muslims are the new Nazi's. "Islamo-fascist's" to be exact. Americans must not wait like they did in the last war. The movie is basically "Saving Private Ryan" Vs "Schindlers List". It is a simplistic piece of propaganda designed to keep Americans enthusiastic for war.
Here is a more in depth analysis with pics...
Voice of Morgan Freeman:
"That our world was being watched by intelligences greater than our own. That as men busied themselves about their various concerns, they observed and studied. The way a man with a microscope might observe the creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro about the globe confident of our Empire over this world. Yet across the gulf of space, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded our planet with envious eyes. And slowly and surely drew their plans against us."
