BASIL CHRISTY

Having watched Soldiers without Swords a couple things come to mind. Firstly the ancient saying, “the pen is mightier than the sword” which inevitably leads my mind to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Sean Connery uses a pen to kill a guy but that is neither here nor there. The point is that the media has a profound influence on our daily lives. It influences perception, action, ones very thoughts, etc. Media can effectively be used to accomplish anything one desires if done correctly. It really goes to show why media control is one of the first and most important goals of most tyrannical and oppressive governments.
