Young Americans
After being asked to explain what an anti American was, Martha Gellhorn is quoted as saying. 

I’ll tell you what an anti American is: it’s what government call those who honor America by objecting to war and the theft of resources and believing in all of humanity. There are millions of these anti Americans in the United States. They are ordinary people who belong to no elite and who judge their government in moral terms, though they would call it common decency. They are not vain, they are people with a waitful conscience, the best of American citizens. Sure, they disappear from view now and then but they are like seeds beneath the snow. I would say they are truly exceptional.
