Capitalist Propaganda: Our Job In Japan

Saturday, July 4, 2015 10:00 pm

CAUTION: Contains graphic war footage

Training film for U.S. soldiers embarking on occupation duty in Japan. Written by Dr. Seuss and formed the basis for his latter 1947 Oscar-winning film, “Design For Death.” This film was seen as too sympathetic to the Japanese and MacArthur worked to suppress it

Really good advice for the war on terror – kill the idea.

Oh, and if the “mumbo-jumbo” section at 6:35 gets a little long & hard to listen to, skip to 7:30.

Capitalist Propaganda: Your Job In Germany

Saturday, July 4, 2015 3:00 pm

CAUTION: Contains graphic war footage

“Your Job In Germany” is a short film made for the United States War Department in 1945. It was intended to be shown to U.S. soldiers about to occupy Germany. The film was made by the military films unit commanded by Frank Capra, and was written by Theodor Geisel, who is better known by his pen name Dr. Seuss.

The film urged against fraternization with the German people, who are portrayed as thoroughly untrustworthy. It reminds its viewers of Germany’s history of aggression, under “Führer Number 1″ Otto von Bismarck, “Führer Number 2″ Kaiser Wilhelm II and “Führer Number 3″ Adolf Hitler. It argues that German youth were especially dangerous because they had spent their entire lives under the Nazi regime.

An edited and rewritten version of the film, Hitler Lives, was released commercially the same year, and won the Academy Award for Documentary Short Subject.

I can’t help noting that this goes a long way toward explaining how we managed to lose Iraq after we won the war.

I don’t know what was up with that snide comment right at the end. Very unprofessional, and totally out of character for CGPGrey, who otherwise does their usual fine job of being both objective and informative.

Sphere of Death!

On Sunday, extreme motorsports fans attracted to the Park, where there was an international stunt show “Flying cars”. Although the program of the event significantly corrected the rain, stunt succeeded in capturing three world records.

I’m not sure how impressive this actually is, but I like it mostly for the look on the driver’s face after he exits the sphere. His expression is of someone who – having done the impossible – has been rewarded with being pardoned from the life sentence he was serving in a Siberian gulag.

At least, that’s how it plays out in my head…

You’d think this would be tl;dw, but the creator of this video has impressive editing skills – he knows how to have the video skip to something else once you get the idea of what’s going on.

I’d call this a textbook study for making videos of essentially repetitive tasks.

PS: I think it’s awesome that he starts by making his own stone ax.
