THE NATIONAL DEFENSE

THE NATIONAL DEFENSE

It’s on many politicians’ agendas and personal platform for this year’s elections – how to best protect Americans from harm, both at home and abroad. What kind of collective defense structure does the nation need for our times and for the future? How can we best protect ourselves from each other when the need arises? These are tough questions but we must confront them with a bold and fresh outlook and discard some of our 20th Century thinking that just doesn’t address the current context.

A cornerstone of the New Americanism is a shared matrix of individual and collective defense structures. In other words, Americans will assume a greater share of defending their persons at home while protecting the nation will be the primary job of the armed services. The collective defense will also have to be restructured around known and projected national threats rather than around the classic service components such as the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, etc.
