but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy,

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought

and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism
and exposing the country to danger.
It works the same in every country.

Anger and Danger are intimately intertwined.
An angry person is a dangerous person,
whether that person crosses our path
or whether the angry person is ourself.

we tend to exhibit anger as well as fear.
We look for someone to blame for the dangerous situation,
and direct our anger toward them.
