Notes 10-31-07 Overview 1. A civil-military gap? 2. A mirror or a wall? 3. The militarization of American identity 4. Mechanisms of identity formation 5. Is a militarized society dangerous? 6. Announcements 1. A civil-military gap? In the military, there is a huge over representation of Republicans in the military (23 rep for 1 dem) In civilian life, there is about an avg. amount of republicans and democrats Two questions: Is it accurate? Does it matter? Does it matter? Yes, gap matters because if the military grows too far apart from civilian society, than the military won't obey orders from political leaders 2. A mirror or a wall? 3. The militarization of American identity militarization is a slow step by step process militarization is not just the over attempt to expand the military's power globally (war and empire) but it is a camouflage of how widespread acceptance of military definition of a situation marginalizes other views.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
