War became associated with heroism and consensus as the nation came together like a “band of brothers” in the life-and-death struggles with evil enemy-others. By making the ultimate sacrifice, the nation’s war dead sanctified the Myth of America. They gave their lives that we might live, and such sacrifice could only be honored, not called into question. While most Americans honored their obligation to support the troops, antiwar protesters subverted national identity. Advocates of peaceful internationalism thus find themselves policed, stigmatized as unpatriotic, and often incarcerated in a continuous series of countersubversive campaigns.
The costs are too high, the consequences too great, both at home and abroad, to remain acquiescent.
