America Has Become So Divided That Foreign Threats No Longer Unite the Nation
Wars are often fought by patriots, or by people so dedicated to a cause that they’re willing to kill or die for it. This actually has strategic value for governments, and some use it to their advantage. The threats of war and the drums of the war hawks are often rallying calls that unify a nation behind a patriotic idea. Sometimes the mere talk of a war and shows to prepare are enough to unite the people behind a common patriotic cause.

We’ll discuss.
