People do not perceive where their true interests lie and hence are easily swayed by emotional appeals to support polices that cost them their money, their sons, and their own lives. Because they have been willing to accept uncritically the myth of the national interest -- i.e. the definition advanced by the national security managers -- they exercise almost no control over the commitments the managers make in their name.
