The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

The guy acts and talks like he is a mentally challenged psychopath who kidnaps women, ties them up in his basement (and he does this if you click on the 70 minute review of Phantom Menace, where he eviscerates Lucas at every level).

Yet the guy is clearly very talented director or film student, becasue his critiques are precisely and professionally focused, pretty damn funny too.
