The show The Walking Dead is a vivid rendition of the humanist observation that good remains in the human heart, and grace is possible, even when all that is holy has been sucked dry from the world. On the other hand, true evil in zombie lore comes not from the un-dead, but the un-bit who succumb to fear. Grace appears when we turn our gaze from fear toward love, and we learn there are fates worse than death, like losing your humanity when you’re still alive. Rev. Bret Lortie speaking.

“Should conscription be reintroduced and if so how?”
For almost four hundred years, volunteer and draftee citizen armies have fought America’s wars and returned to civilian life with the cessation of conflict. This tradition ended with the Vietnam War. Our wars are now fought by professionals, including increasing numbers of private contractors and mercenaries.What does this mean for the Republic? Should conscription be reintroduced and if so how? For an article on the topic see, The New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/27/opinion/americans-and-their-military-drifting-apart.html?emc=eta1. Discussion Leader: Gordon Mallett
