GOOD/BADMost of the citizens felt the US should take part in the war, and most government officials felt the same way. There are always dissidents, but they did't take lots of drastic actions until the soldiers came home. They did not give returning veterans the respect they deserved.

In general, post-war feelings were very positive. Most believed that the war was justified on the two major fronts, Europe and the Pacific, and were happy with the outcome. There was a sense of exhuberance and for decades the US rode on high hopes for the future. The Allied Forces were more than decent in how they treated the defeated nations. We helped Japan and Germany in their reconstruction and we heartily welcomed them into the world culture and economy. The actions taken by the US were also in the best interests of the US, but few will deny that US aid was crucial in the restoration of the parts of the world that were scarred by the war.

How did the idea of freedom motivate the US to get involved in both World War 1 and World War 2?

I don't think the idea of freedom had much to do with the US entry into World War I or World War II. The US declared war on Germany in 1917 after the sinking of the Lusitania, where a number of US citizens died. The US entered World War II after the Japanese attack on the military bases at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and the German and Italian governments declared war on the US the next day.

The sinking of the Lusitania had an effect. 128 US citizens were drowned, but this was in 1915 & the US does not enter the war until April of 1917....
