Two posts from Andrew Sullivan on the future of public support for wars.
A Pew report ... finds that more than three-quarters (77%) of adults over 50 said they have an immediate family member who served in the military; among people between 18-29 years old, the number is only one-third.
The analysis he offers here postulates an increase in wars because of disengagement and desensitization of the public.
His second post goes in the opposite direction positing a combination of "the hard lessons of Iraq" and the anti-imperialist influence of Ron Paul on the younger generation producing less support and perhaps more opposition (less disengagement) by the younger generation.
So what do you think the trends are here?
