Do you want more drums of war?

It was the respected US Army general George S Patton Jr. who famously said “If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.” His extensive experience of war gives gravity to his insight.

Today, when we speak about reasons to go to war, it seems that there must be total public compliance. It’s now apparently unpatriotic to ever question official narratives so all dissenting voices must be totally crushed.

But where does this absolutism logically lead? And how do we resist a militarised herd mentality that will lead to bigger geopolitical conflicts?

Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by co-director of the Organisation for Propaganda Studies, Dr Piers Robinson and lecturer in international politics at the University of Leicester, Tara McCormack, to discuss war, propaganda, and crushing dissent.
