Default Possibly the Coolest Government Poster of All Time

I came across this vintage poster when looking for some artwork for a project.

The reaction it's likely to evoke for most of us is a grand illustration of how far we have come (descended) as a people in just a single lifetime.

It's also really cool.

Comments? Alternative captions?

Different time with different people. Back then, when the nation was at war, the NATION was at war and the war was fought to win as quickly as possible.

It's just different now...

Yes, different. We're largely a nation of self-absorbed wussies now.
