Most people of all political stripes do not like being swindled, and this animated and historical video is about giving college and high school classroom exposure to what might possibly be the four biggest fakes of the last hundred years. This video is sure to provoke discussion about the causes of war. Please note that among the four rulers primarily responsible for those four big wars, there was one fascist, one communist, one Democrat, and one Republican. War is an equal opportunity enterprise. http://howtojumpstartyourwar.wordpress.com HOW TO JUMP START YOUR WAR (20 minutes) has become part of a longer anti-war video WAR INVESTMENT SEMINAR (26 minutes) to present the financial motivation to provoke modern international wars for their maximization of investment profit potential. http://warinvestmentseminar.wordpress.com Now WAR INVESTMENT SEMINAR with HOW TO JUMP START YOUR WAR have been merged and extended into the video PEACE & WAR (31 minutes) to provide a hopeful conclusion, presenting wars which have been stopped by the people. http://indieflix.com/film/peace-war-32902/
