Chris Hedges watch.
Don't have time to read War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning by New York Times writer Chris Hedges? Then check out this fascinating interview at WNET's Religion & Ethics Newsweekly. There's a short version, but you'll really want to read the full interview.
Bonus JLA watch! Fellow admirers of James Luther Adams will take special note of Hedges' mention of his ethics teacher at Harvard Divinity School:
I had a great ethics professor at Harvard Divinity School, James Luther Adams. When I was a student, he was in his seventies. He told us that when we were his age, we'd all be fighting the Christian fascists, which we thought was rather silly then, but probably not so silly now.
The short version of the interview also contains a helpful reading list in the theological ethics around war.
