“War is just a Racket” - The Memorial Day Hoax

Patriotic kitsch - the aesthetics of American exceptionalism - HERE
Paul Craig Roberts (May 21, 2015) - Memorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. 

[...] Most American soldiers died fighting foes who posed no threat to the United States. Our soldiers died for secret agendas of which they knew nothing. Capitalists hid their self-interests behind the flag, and our boys died for the One Percent’s bottom line.

[...] We need a memorial day to commemorate the victims of neoliberal globalization. All of us are its victims, and in the end the capitalists also.
