An excerpt from an animated film in production skewers claims that police state-style measures of social control are undertaken for the good of citizens.

The film’s background story, provided on its YouTube page, is as follows:

Although Nation-Z is run under the guise of a democracy, to implement their long-term plans, it’s rulers need complete control of the citizens. To help achieve this, they run propaganda, or “public service announcements” like this, in an attempt to program the public to live in fear of terrorism and acquiesce to the freedom-robbing security measures imposed on them.
