War and Peace: Is One Naive to Hope?



IS ONE NAIVE TO HOPE?


Remember Jimmy Stewart's words from the Civil War movie, SHENANDOAH, as he delivers a soliloquy at his wife's headstone:

"Well about this war, Martha. I just don't know. The politicians talk about the need for it, the old men talk about the glory of it, and the soldiers? Well, they just wanna go home."



"All the Earth is groaning, crying, for that day of sweet release---"




POINTS TO PONDER:

FROM THE 1950'S TO THE PRESENT: WHY DOES AMERICA FIGHT?

IS

Preemptive War Morally Defensible, Strategically Necessary?

ARE

Interventionist Foreign Policies Required To "Protect" America?

WHY

Does The USA Meddle In The Foreign Affairs Of Other Nations?

CAN

Democracy Be Imposed At The Point OF A Sword?

SHOULD

America Be Engaged In "Nation-Building"?

WILL

The "American Empire", Unlike All Previous Ones, Be Exempt From

The Dust Bin And Ash Heap of History?

HOW

Does One Fight The Power Of The "Military-Industrial" Complex?


Boldly addressing these and other questions, WHY WE FIGHT is a very sobering and eye-opening documentary film that suggests that we, as common citizens, are powerless to control our political destiny, and it ultimately answers the question, "Does it matter who runs and who wins?" with a resounding "NO!".

Directed by Eugene Jarecki, WHY WE FIGHT won the Grand Jury Award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival in Utah as the best documentary film of the year.
