(AltMarket) – The collusion between Hollywood, the MSM, and the military industrial complex, has been ongoing since the days of William Randolph Hearst, but in the past decade it has taken on an Orwellian tone that is at once startling and absurd. Many people trust TV, mainly because most people feel that “seeing is believing”.
The problem is that with television, even news media, what you see is NOT reality. It is a fantasy world built upon selective editing and pre-scripted responses and events.
The militarization of entertainment and journalism in the U.S. is no accident. The Pentagon makes it their business to ensure that the public is philosophically and politically conditioned to support DOD initiatives.
They want us to cheer them as heroes, even if their actions are far from heroic. The militarization of any nation leads ultimately to disaster. Death can never be adopted as the theme of a society, or it too will also die.

The technological advances of the post-war era in the machinery of warfare have made human suffering and death in conflict-zones acutely brutal. Innocuous sounding weapons used in the public lexicon such as 'daisy-cutter' and 'rocket propelled grenade' are weapons used in modern conflict to inflict heinous death and casualty. However, public perceptions of the reality of war have been consistently censured by the press -- in this case the American media establishment -- since as early as the American Civil War. While the obvious reason for this is to maintain public morale and support for life-threatening conflict, American military intervention since that civil war has been projected internationally. During the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, the explosion of media communications technology has mirrored military R&amp;D in that it has allowed instantaneous access to global conflict.
