This was a fight for democracy and global justice at a time when most citizens in the United States belived that the foreign policy of their government should have promoted neutrality and isolationism. Patriotism plays a big role in the film, and this is seen when Strasser asks Rick the nature of his nationality and Rick replied that he was a drunkard. There are hints that the American government is seen as oblivious to the government activities. However, in reality America had national pride in the history at that time for showing their interest for the public good, which is portrayed by Rick. This was unlike the characters in France, German and foreigners.
