American war movies, from World War II to 2015, have produced a remarkably uniform vision of how American war works, one that, in its modern form, is undoubtedly once again lending a helping hand to our latest conflicts.
America is not truly religious -- rather we ignore the Golden Rule daily. Rather than the follow the Golden Rule, we follow the more savage rule of "might makes right" with the violence and hypocrisy of a schoolyard bully who falsely believes that he will always be the biggest kid.
Thirty-five years from now, America's official century of being top dog (1945-2045) will have come to an end; its time may, in fact, be running out right now. We are likely to begin to look ever more like a giant version of England.
