The Personal and the Political: American Culture and Militarism
Since 9/11 less than one percent of Americans bear the burden of our nation’s wars. An all-volunteer force means we are insulated from the stress of military life and protected from the risks of the physical and psychological wounds of war. What are the benefits to citizens and what are the potential dangers to society that this policy presents? What does the cultural gap between civilians and professional soldiers mean for our country now and in the years to come? These questions are rarely posed in public discourse or analyzed by the media whose default position promotes an almost mythical image of our armed forces.
