I actually like Tom Clancy's books but find the Prime series disappointing.

@davey The guy knew how to tell a story. I'll give him that much. And given the times I can't blame him for writing the sort of material he did.

But the people adapting his stories for TV have to know they're making propaganda.


I think any literature based on military/military intelligence is propaganda. Most often it is entertaining while soul sucking at the same time.
