New movie’s lessons can be relevant in real life

Posted: Saturday, January 27, 2018 12:00 am

There is a new movie on the horizon which points to America and the way we respond to the  world around us.  The movie is entitled “Darkest Hour” and is about Winston Churchill, his philosophies and actions. At least three lessons can be learned from this man and his approach to war and government.

The first lesson is the importance of human choice. In 1933 Hitler threatened world domination by use of a ruthless war-machine destine to destroy by sheer force. To demonstrate his power, he launched his army against Belgium, Finland and France. In so doing he rendered choice for those people null and void. The second lesson was that war must be conducted with one central theme “a willingness to fight to the death.” In other words, go into it with a goal to win at all cost.  Churchill believed that absolute stands are justified only when they are absolutely necessary. The third lesson espoused by him was “strategy must be rooted in purpose of a nation.” The difference in politics and strategy come to light as a nation’s point of view becomes clear.
