The SWNIDish political philosophy is negatively epitomized in the twin aphorisms, "Pacifism kills," and "Socialism impoverishes."
Today we approve of an exposition, only slightly longer, of the first aphorism.
At the indispensable First Things, Michael Cantarino offers "The Painful Naivete of Pacifism."
Indeed! Call it "deadly naivete" if you care to be direct.
Cantarino briefly and provocatively lays out the best reasons not to regard pacifist cant as a thoughtful application of Christian principles.
We wish things were different in this regard, but they aren't.
