I received a link on FB for a film allegedly exposing the militarising of young people in Britain. If the website and trailer is anything to go by, it’s up there with Princess Productions:

https://www.war.school/

The producer suggests that there’s a conspiracy to militarise society, targeting the young as on the 1930s. That may have worked in Nazi Germany, but apart from a few instances, pre war Britain was overwhelmingly pacifist, based on the horror of the Great War. But that worked out well, didn’t it?

Pushing the agenda it’s a ‘conspiracy’ rather than supporting the armed forces by having Armed Forces Day, Uniform at Work Day. Can’t say I’ve ever heard of ‘Camo Day’ (cue some wag saying that’s the point)My bold
War School
War School is a film about the battle for the hearts and minds of Britain’s children.

Set against the backdrop of Remembrance the controversial and challenging documentary reveals how, faced with unprecedented opposition to its wars, the British government is using a series of new and targeted strategies to promote support for the military. Armed Forces Day, Uniform to Work Day, Camo Day, National Heroes Day - in the streets, on television, on the web, at sports events, in schools, advertising and fashion – the military presence in civilian life is on the march. The public and ever younger children are being groomed to collude in the increasing militarisation of UK society.


Interweaving the powerful and moving testimonies of veterans of Britain’s unbroken century of wars with expert commentary, archive and a redolent score, War School’s mosaic of sound and imagery evokes the story of the child soldier who becomes a peace campaigner, challenging the myth of Britain's benign role in world affairs and asking if perpetual war is really what we want for future generations?

Yes, I hadn’t heard of Camo Day either, unless it’s some sort of Fetish event.

They sound a grand old bunch of Right On (or is it woke these days?) meddling do-gooders.
 
Just more propaganda designed to undermine the institutions of society, from a mixture of socialist numskulls and useful idiots.

There is nothing wrong with reviewing or questioning, any institution of society. My issue is always is it honest, balanced and open towards its agenda.

The increase in those of the media being made up of angst ridden 'poor little rich boy' 6th formers, is of no benefit to the larger society. Sadly because they are next to useless in the workplace, propaganda production in media is there only hope.

Having had a peek as to where this guff is being screened, I think I can say with certainty, that not many folk will see this.

Film producers obviously like to aim high when they are punting their work and they would have tried to get the big guns interested, but their screening programme tells me that the big guns, the mainstream film distributors, have given them the BFO pill.

Those priceless Princess Productions threads on ARRSE will have got more coverage.

30-odd years in the services and in central government, but I have yet to see any evidence of conspiracies. Perhaps the closest we got to it was the dodgy dossier episode in 2002/3 but that was less of a conspiracy and more to do with groupthink and people, such as Alistair Campbell, not appreciating the impact of sexing up intelligence reports. Admittedly the consequences were enormous; but not a conspiracy.

It’s like 911; how could any government organisation keep a conspiracy on that level quiet? The bottom line is that no government, certainly in the west, could. To quote Sir Humphrey Appleby “The ship of state is the only ship that leaks from the top.”

Suffice to say that this film will not be premiering in Leicester Square any time soon…

I got some FB feed from them a while back and took them to task mildly - they're connected to the Society of Friends/Quakers - which is a bit of a pity as I normally expect some balance and reason rather than histrionic SJW bollocks from them.

What about military trainings? From youngest
to pre-conscripts:

Ok, so politically influential then? On market day in our town about 10 years ago I confronted a Quaker group holding a protest about Child Soldiery in the UK. They seemed convinced that we sent 16 year olds to fight, based on recruiting material from Welbeck 6th Form College. However the discussion was abortive; it was a silent protest and they would not engage in discussion. Which struck me a bit pointless.

As it happens, they are quite prominent on the Town Council, which does strike me as a bit hypocritical.

NATO countries have 7-to-1 numerical superiority over Russia. So, Russia have to have at least 10-to-1 quality superiority. It means more nukes, more armour and what is the most important - better motivation and skills.

No
Because contrary to the point of view of campaigns like this, we are not indoctrinating our youth, whereas Russia is
Sure you are. You are indoctrinating them to be faithful Underseptics, defenseless sissies, tolerant polysexuals, doubtless environmentalists and so on... You don't indoctrinate them to defend their country, may be because you understand that it is not their country anymore.
