    Beowulf as a Pacifist Poem Social phenomena have always been narrated by artists. Art is a cathartic way to express one’s negative feelings; poems help poets and their readers or listeners to deal with people's frustrations. War, man's tendency to wage aggression upon each other, is the most criticized issue among intellectuals in the society. An artist's opinions, especially when conflicting with the established social norm of the dominant society, may be disguised and hidden beneath metaphors

    Clearly Pacifist, Clearly Credible Many people tend to think war is a part of life that mankind will never be able to rid itself of. This comes from the assumption that war is one of the basic needs of mankind. However, Margaret Mead does not make this assumption. In fact, she denies its credibility in her essay “Warfare is Only an Invention – Not a Biological Necessity.” In this essay, Margaret Mead combines a great deal of logos and ethos with limited pathos to support her pacifist claim

    A Non-Pacifist Argument Against Capital Punishment ABSTRACT: In this paper I present a moral argument against capital punishment that does not depend upon the claim that all killing is immoral. The argument is directed primarily against non-philosophers in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Oddly, the moral argument against capital punishment has not been effective in the United States despite the biblical injunction against killing. Religious supporters of the death penalty often invoke a presumed

    Jesus, A Pacifist Some people believe Jesus was not a pacifist. One of the main reasons is the fact that in the Old Testament there is mention of hundreds of war in which the Israelites believed God was on their side. In these wars there were often miraculous victories in which the losing city or tribe were completely wiped out. Pacifists do not believe in fighting in any form but Jesus mentioned these wars in his teachings. In Luke 4: 18-19 it says, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me

    from a shoving cut on the law. Thoreau kept trying to get published in a transcendentalist magazine called The Dial, but was never able to until Emerson took over. Thoreau was “high on life” and didn’t like hate; I think he was kind of an original pacifist. He was the author of many great books such as A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers and Walden. He was a traveler going to pass to places like Cape Cod, Minnesota, and Canada. On May 6, 1862 back in his home town or Concord, Massachusetts

    while necessary, are harsh and unforgiving. William James, the author of “The Moral Equivalent of War”, speaks only of the benefits to be had and not of the horrors and sacrifices found in the turbulent times of war. James bears the title of a pacifist, but he heralds war as a necessity for society to exist.

I was deeply saddened at your comments in the oppression and restriction to what I may or may not strive to think. As a pacifist and non- sadist, I call what you believe in as ‘ingraining or indoctrination', whereas our own society may call it ‘brainwashing'. Our human nature gives us freedom, as does the Constitution. It guarantees us the right to “life, liberty, and the
