Propaganda & Mass Persuasion: "A war for Liberty and Humanity"

"A war for Liberty and Humanity"

"It is a proud banner, which stands the whole world over for freedom and
humanity with few stains of defeat or injustice upon its folds. The great heart
of the nation has swelled with pride at the righteousness of the cause in whose
aid it is now advancing."
During a time of war the country comes together. There is a sense of nationalism that overpowers society. America stands as the country that comes to the aid of other countries in a time of need.

A good quote. Always cite the source of your quote. What about your image? Can you provide some analysis?

Yes nationalism is an important part of wartime propaganda. Is this idea that America is aiding ther countries an important part of our self-image during war?
As opposed to what?
