11/12/07 Veteran’s Day (observed)

What does it mean to go to war?  How does a society decide to go to war?  Is there such thing as a good war?  How about a necessary war?  What is the cost of war to those who fight it, and those who survive it?  Is an end to war a realistic thing to hope for?

What have we learned from struggles to wage war, and struggles to wage peace, in the past?  What can we learn from today’s conflicts?

We’ll be reflecting on these questions, and maybe a few others, with veterans of war and veterans of the peace movement, and at least one person who is both of those things.

  1. I found today’s show very thoughtful and informative. I found the portion about the individual’s struggle between spirituality and nationalism especillay poignant. Im appalled that the the Catholic Church could in any kind of conscience have any affiliation with the SOA. thanks to Melville and friends for their hard work in making folks aware of what we are REALLY up to in this country.
