This is a subversive and much unspoken phenomenon in modern politics.
It is called cultural militarisation, and it has been happening for at least 10-20 years.
It is more than peculiar how many tasteless, poorly directed, yet well-funded war films are being reeled out in quick succession, often well timed with real events. The idea is to spoon-feed the populace with a deliberate rhetoric, especially for youths, that skews the perception of historical events, or otherwise normalises and ingrains the notion of conflict and warfare within society.
Cultural militarisation is propaganda designed to fabricate popular consensus in for a recent or future war, thus helping to legitimise the government and its policies.
It’s obvious, and it reeks of desperate and pitiful political decay.
