Is American militarism a problem? What are the causes of this militarism? Why are we now calling every guy who ever put on a uniform a "hero"? And can militarism be stopped?
Former career soldier Stan Goff addresses these questions with impressive insight and erudition.
We supplement Goff's wordss with a few minutes of Martin Luther King's fine address on American militarism and war, "Beyond Vietnam" (April 4, 1967). Plus some background and commentary by KD.
