War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations. Written by
This documentary verbalized everything I have been thinking for years now and some things I didn't even realize I was thinking. It reminded me why I have refused to turn on my television for 6 months in order to avoid being fed disgustingly obvious lies and propaganda day after day. The pattern of propaganda has become so obvious that it amazes me greatly how it has not become blatantly clear to more people. There can almost exist a scientific equation with CNN and other such networks used as its variables as to when the United States government will declare its next war and on what country the war will be declared on.
Watching this documentary brought tears to my eyes. They were not tears of sadness. They were tears of disgust. Listening to the way most of the people were talking about the wars and the manner in which they were being fought made me ask myself why we as human beings deserve to continue our existence.
Absolute praise to all involved in making this documentary and hope to see more of their fine work.
