Michael Dawson Has a Question
I have a question to which I was hoping somebody here might know a good answer: I'm going to be teaching a sociology class starting in January, and the premise will be to study and gather evidence and analysis of the three main explanations for modern US militarism:

  1. Mainstream -- the world hates us for our freedom/success
  2. Alt v. 1 -- runaway Pentagon/loose cannons/secret teams
  3. Alt v. 2 -- constant war-making is required economically and politically by corporate capitalism

What is the single best statement of the mainstream position?
I have the latter two well covered, but want to give people the most coherent version of #1. Any nominations? Muchas gracias.
