Americans not how to fight for their way of life he uses examples such as World War I, the great depression and then probation era. All these examples are what define what it means to be an american. the fight for the meaning, american, and how we should not only help the fight over seas but fight the fight back home. Americans take all the liberties for granted that was one of the points he trying to get across that we as americans have all these great liberties that all americans have he made an emphasis on how other countries are having those same rights taken away from them, Ickles wanted them understand the many freedoms that there are. The foundation that american democracy was shaking from beneath them that the very thing that all americans love was being thernted but the nazi’s and that going into the war was a necessary evil that was.
