Mitchum is speaking with a WWII frame (probably bourbon as well).

Which doesn't help explain why we heard the same thing from Americans during most of the last the conflict.

For a diversion, I've been typing a year, 1966 for example, into YouTube to check out what's available—news, culture, politics—and I don't get that the American core has changed that much in 40+ years.

The subject for our fear or hatred shifts, but the insecurity prevails.

Although it's interesting to consider that the media footprint of that time—and its ability to create homogenous narratives—was relatively small.
