New York Times on Student Government’s Leftist Film Maker
According to the Times:
. . . it is clear from the start of this agitprop entertainment that Mr. Jarecki has a very good idea why America has seemed so eager to pick up arms over the past half-century. Calvin Coolidge famously said that the chief business of the American people is business; 80 years later, Mr. Jarecki forcefully, if not with wholesale persuasiveness, argues that our business is specifically war.

One person’s politically convincing argument is another’s propagandistic screed, and whether you buy the film will doubtless depend on your existing beliefs. That said, even those of radical political persuasion might find it hard to accept Mr. Jarecki’s argument that American militarism is, underneath the talk about freedom and democracy, a simple question of dollars.
