of Utilitarianism”, in H-N. Castaneda and G. Nakhnikian, Morality and the
Language of Conduct (Detroit: Wayne University Press, 1963), pp. 107–44. The

Charges have been made quite often that unarmed pacifism instituted in the
Constitution is but the expression of an ideal coupled with neglect of reality.
Indeed, the charges would be pertinent if judged on the basis of ... At a time when
Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) is a possibility which gives credibility to the
policy of deterence, the traditional meaning of war as "continuation of politics by
other means" is a deceptive anachronism. There are several concrete reasons
why unarmed ...

It is noble to die for such a cause as this, but such nobility could conflict with the
demands of justice towards those who depend on us. This question will be
treated in Chapter Six. The absolute pacifist will have nothing to do with armed
intervention. This then becomes a test case for the credibility of pacifism. It leads
to a discussion on the role of 'sanctioned' violence in society. If the pacifist is not
prepared to go to war to rescue the damsel from the dragon's claws, will he/she
then accept ...

sympathetic towards the pacifist ideal, and very willing to have the pacifists make
good their indictment of war. But when they claim that war can be eliminated in
the near future, and that this is likely to be the last great war, many of us feel
extremely doubtful of their analysis of the situation by which we are faced. We
feel that the assumptions in terms of which the pacifists proceed may, unless
corrected, lead to a tragic misdirection of energy, and to the baulking even of
legitimate hopes.

nothing to do with their eventual credibility. They are being ignored in order to
focus on other pacifist arguments. Why do these other arguments deserve special
attention? Unlike more abstract arguments that have whatever force they have

before. Because these arguments are partly based on our experiences with war (

Don't forget, there is something else beside Europe and the West; there is the
Third World and two billon persons who should be our allies and aren't, partly

Are we really credible and can we speak of anything but European and Western
defense if ...
