This is an eloquent prophetic message from a young Quaker that challenges us to live in integrity. He is speaking truth to ;power, the power that most of us have (but so often deny) as educated middle-class Americans or first-worlders (even if we earn "not much"). Since our present wealth has depended and continues to depend on military and police power to enforce injustices of slavery, stolen land, cheap oil, cheap labor, how can we find the courage and faith to rid ourselves of the seeds of more war and violence? The challenge is profound. It is also perennial. It seems to come to us again in every generation, thank the Spirit. (See for example PHP 326, 1996, Liberation Theology for Quakers by Alice and Stoughton Lynd, and PHP 145, 1966, What Doth the Lord Require of Thee? by Mildred Binns Young.)
