Air shows glorify war, and the media promotes war in a positive light, instead of exposing war for what it really is: mass murder.
The purpose of military propaganda is
to glorify war, and make it fun for the whole family.
It is woven into our culture, through mass media ad campaigns,
Movies, sports, video games, toys, music, the public school system, every aspect of our lives.
Militarism and nationalism is increasing more everyday, but this is nothing new.
Every nation and empire throughout history has used the flag and the soldier to get the citizens to rally around the next war, and to make war a part of our normal life.
Smedley Butler said "The Flag follows the Dollar, and the soldiers follow the flag."
When war becomes unpopular, uncool, and unacceptable, then children will stop dreaming of becoming soldiers, and going off to fight in wars, and then the people who start and profit from wars will have no one to go kill and die for their lies and their profits, then wars will end.
Beware of the Military Industrial Complex
President Eisenhower warned us about allowing the military industrial Complex to grow beyond all reasonable dimensions and influence in our government, economy and society.
We no longer are producing anything but things that blows stuff up and kills people.

Preparing for Hyper-Inflation:
War is a Racket by Smedley Butler is a famous speech denouncing the military industrial complex.
This anti-war speech by two-time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient exposes war profits that benefit few at the expense of many.
Throughout his distinguished career in the Marines, Smedley Darlington Butler demonstrated that true patriotism does not mean blind allegiance to government policies with which one does not agree.
To Hell with war.
We must demand that our politicians that work for us, stop wasting over a Trillion Dollars a year, of our tax dollars, on the military defense budget.
There is no need to continue to build more weapons and vehicles to deliver those weapons, when the US has overstayed it's welcome in occupying over 138 nations with over 800 military bases.
The days of empire are over.
The USA Inc. Is bankrupt.
The game is over.
And don't even begin to say "We need to build these copters to provide jobs".
Find another job, the mass-murdering, baby-killing enterprise is going out of business.
