Zero Dark Propaganda

Abby Martin, host of Breaking the Set, takes a look at films that glorify war by highlighting the recent film ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ as an example of an over-sensationalized historical narrative.

    It’s a shame Abby didn’t see the movie before commenting on it. Zero Dark Thirty is an anti-torture film, not a jingoist action movie. Showcasing the inhumanity and calling into question the usefulness of torture is very much at the heart of the film, and anti-war advocates should be applauding it.

      Are the government-hired killers portrayed as antagonists, or protagonists in this film?

      This is like an infinite regress of propaganda Meta, meta-propoganda. Like propoganda looking at itself in a spiraling set of mirrors. Little “feel goody” side messages like “touture bad!” are beside the point.

        I see you are taking kindly to GEB.

        Personally, I prefer to be propagandized than tortured.

          Luckily, in the USA, you don’t have to choose, you can have both under the provisions of the NDAA!
