A famous person said that the business of America is business. But more clearly in reality it would seem to be war! My fellow Americans have appeared mad to me more than a few times I can tell you in my life. Why (America’s business is war) takes a long explanation I think, but probably begins with the decimation of those who lived here before. I think the American mentality could certainly be changed however, via a colossal defeat in a catastrophic war. It’s being over here on this massive continent we seem to be overly scared, and yet also we don’t feel we’ll be as damaged as others probably by being quite far away from the other great powers — of course getting to the war front(s) doesn’t seem to have ever been a problem, though.
