Horsham Humanists discuss Morality and War 9th January

Our secretary Gerry gave a presentation on morality and war, with discussion throughout.

Topics included:

Definition of war

Why wars are fought

The morality of war (just war, proportionality, destruction of resources, conscientious objection)

Legality

We concluded by considering a Humanist approach to war, centering on the need to justify our actions.
