Default Great Art That Just Happened to Be Propaganda

What are some state funded films/art pieces/songs/etc. that are good enough to get brainwashed by?

Battleship Potemkin is probably the most obvious example. Any film nerd will tell you that it established a lot of editing techniques like the montage and cause and effect, but it was a soviet revolutionary film made to demonized the government.

Pollock and Rothko were also funded by the funded by the CIA to exemplify the free will of Americans and scare the soviets or some ****.

I also think that the American national anthem is a good song.

Any other examples?

War propaganda in the form of poster art has always fascinated me, especially the WWI & WWII era ones. Interesting examples can be found from many of the nations involved. Here are a few from the U.S. during WWI...

The German National Anthem has been my fav anthem ever since I found out my military school's song ripped it off and just changed the lyrics. I learned the German version by heart just so I could sing it during school assemblies when they forced us to sing the school song. It's not an actual Nazi song, as it was adopted during the German Empire in the 1800's (I believe) but the first two verses were dropped after WWII cause they're nationalist as ****. The first verse literally demarcates Germany's territorial boundaries, presumably without consulting any of the countries that might have taken issue with these proclamations. The music was also written by Joseph Haydn for what it's worth.

You simply have not lived until you've sung, "Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles! Uber Alles in Der Welt!" at the top of your lungs.

That is how you interpret music.
