A good reason for this is that for the later half of the 20th century
the U.S. stopped using physical force on its own people (or at least
used less of it). Instead they decided on spending the money on public
relations, and on technicalogical methods.  So basically they got into
bed with the entertainment industry to make sure that every little film
and show had its little piece of propoganda.
