I get the strong impression that Mr M Gibson has something against the English. Anyway, for worse, many people have learned their history from watching dross like "Braveheart", and they should be reminded or if necessary just plain told that Hollywood and history are strangers to each other.
The point I am making in this video is a much wider one, however. People can be duped into thinking that they are fighting for their own freedom, when they are doing nothing of the sort. Notions of patriotism and largely arbitrary group identity can be exploited by leaders for their own purposes.
