FILM LIFE: War and Revolution | Chapter 15

"War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength." - 1984 by George Orwell. __________

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

The military-industrial complex. ___________
