Although Bishop’s campaign would later focus on keeping America strong enough to withstand Communism, his paranoia over national security first became apparent when the United States entered World War II. In this pamphlet from 1941 he doubts that Americans could have a “will to win” as long as they were addicted to drugs. Not only do soldiers need strength, he argues, but so do civilians. Bishop cites Adolf Hitler’s then successes as affirmation of his convictions. Hitler had asked civilians and soldiers to give up tobacco and alcohol, and Bishop believed that their abstention allowed Germans to become faster and stronger, whether working in factories or piloting fighter planes. German doctors were the first to link smoking to lung cancer. Based on their work the Nazi government later launched an antitobacco campaign that banned smoking in many public places and limited cigarette advertisements, regulations Bishop hoped to realize in America. Bishop’s and Hitler’s politics were very different, but both tapped into wider discussions about the health of the individual and the health of the nation.
