I’ve attended three conferences entitled Ethics of War and Peace that were sponsored by the U.S. military and held at West Point Military Academy. At each of them I identified myself as a pacifist when speaking in a plenary session. I shared my views with cadets and others, and heard their views. After much reflection, for the third conference I decided to wear my “LOVE YOUR ENEMIES” shirt at part of the conference as well as for lunch and during our West Point campus tour. I have definitely had some interesting discussions there, and appreciate the civility that I encounter and also appreciate that I have the academic credentials to be invited to attend. My blog is maintained to be up-to-date and has more material on this and many other topics such as my nonviolent direct action, various arrests for CD, political activism, etc.
