In this research memorandum, the author separates and analyzes the principal external and domestic ingredients of the US national purpose. National security is viewed as a means of giving us the opportunity to pursue our goals, rather than an end in itself. The author concludes that the concept of a national purpose is a valid one, relevant as a kind of litmus paper against which contemporary controversial issues can be tested, and necessarily involving the reconciliation of pragmatic and idealistic tensions.
