As discussed in Wikipedia, during World War II, the United States Department of War commissioned film director Frank Capra to produce a series of seven documentary films titled, “Why We Fight” to justify to the U.S. Soldiers and American public their country’s involvement in the war.
Furthermore, Capra made his primary focus the creation of “one basic, powerful idea” that would spread and evolve into other related ideas. Capra considered one important idea that had always been in his thoughts: I thought of the Bible. There was one sentence in it that always gave me goose pimples: “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
