Why we are at war, Why YOU must help, What YOU can do. Pamphlet.

New York: 1917. Pamphlet. A WWI propaganda pamphlet published by the National Security League, asserting that Germany was plotting to take over Europe and then the US and divide it up between Germany, Mexico and Japan; and outlining actions that patriotic citizens could undertake.

The NSL, an American patriotic organization founded in 1914 advocated a universal military service, a unified national defense agency, an interstate highway system, English as the official language, and a unified national budget.

It was most influential in the WWI period, stoking anti German hysteria through its propaganda publications. It supported the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918 and began to attack the loyalty of thousands of Americans suspected of either pro German, and later pro Communist sympathies.
