Ooooooo. You just gave me an idea.
Let's say we, as a people, as a culture feel a tremendous deal of guilt and anxiety about the casualties we are indirectly responsible for when our country is at war. I'm sure it's immense, and if not given a target erupts into anti-war demonstration.
You know what a really effective way to lance that guilt might be? Give us a scapegoat. Give us a target we can wipe the blood onto from off our own hands.
