I Fought In A War
I just watched Why We Fight, a 2005 documentary directed by Eugene Jarecki about the rise of the military-industrial complex and how it's gotten so out of hand over the past 50 years. It discusses the role of congress and think-tanks, and how money and manipulation are so integrated into our foreign policy. It left me feeling a little overwhelmed and hopeless, but I think it's an important film every taxpayer should see. And if you're feeling really ambitious, check out The Fog of War, which consists of interviews with former Secretary of Defence Robert S. McNamara. Both films will definitely make you think.
