Are we a warlike society? I wouldn't say that per se, but I would say that we are not ones to back into a corner and can be dogged once someone gets
in our sights. The nation was born of a struggle, had an internal struggle, was involved in two international struggles and several regional fights
that were part of a larger picture of a struggle (the Cold War). We are good people, hard workers and a bit on the competitive side, but we are also
very giving and sharing as is evidenced by the large sums in privates donations to causes around the world, not to mention our international
assistance through our government.
So, no, I'd say we aren't a warlike society.
Neurotic, sure. Not warlike. I've often thought Prozac in the water supply might be a pretty good idea!
