Frank Dorrel, publisher and distributor of the antiwar comic book Addicted to War, discusses how he turned to antiwar activism after serving in the US Air Force during Vietnam; his film “What I’ve Learned About U.S. Foreign Policy: The War Against The Third World;” how activist education helps Americans wake up to the destructive nature of their government; and why many Americans self-identify through a “civic religion” of indoctrinated nationalism.
