Topic #1-Military Industrial Complex:
● The main critique in Catch-22-among others-is the military-industrial complex, an
institution that usurps man’s power over his own life, an institution that is a pure threat to the basic maintenance of life and yet is so incredibly important to some Americans. President Dwight Eisenhower made his famous speech in January 1961, upon leaving office. His warning about the power of the military-industrial complex is clearly relevant to Heller’s view of the 1950s U.S. situation. Essentially the military has become too powerful, and its influence in America’s politics and its economy is much like a corporation rather than what a military should be: defense for its people.
● How is Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 an attack on certain American institutions like the
military? How does the following quote tie into your videos and article, along with drawing a direct connection to Heller’s America with today’s America?: “It was a vile and muddy war, and Yossarian could have lived without it—lived forever, perhaps. Only a fraction of his countrymen would give up their lives to win it, and it was not his ambition to be among them. To die or not to die, that was the question, and Clevinger grew limp trying to answer it. History did not demand Yossarian’s premature demise, justice could be satisfied without it, progress did not hinge upon it, victory did not depend on it. That men would die was a matter of necessity; which men would die, though, was a matter of circumstance, and Yossarian was willing to be the victim of anything but circumstance. But that was war. Just about all he could find in its favor was that it paid well and liberated children from the pernicious influence of their parents.”
