We are really in need of more military service. We need to prove to others just how strong we are.
I do not believe in war but instead in peace.
War is necessary because of the evil in the world.
Two wrongs don't make a right. As the bible says, thou shalt not kill and thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
I do care for my neighbors but we must kill to protect our fellow Americans!
You do not need to kill, you are trained to kill. There is a difference.
Michael is at lunch with his military friend Joe.
What do you mean?
You took an oath to protect but in reality it was an oath to kill your opposition.
Michael does not believe in conflict and tries telling Joe.
No, I am simply protecting my people and bringing peace and freedom back home
Violence solves nothing and is completely unjustifiable under any circumstances.
Peace isn't attained through conflict. It is obtained by creating positive relations with other nations and by assisting each other in times of need.
Joe does not understand Michael's initial point so Michael tries rephrasing his point.
You're right. Perhaps my patriotism got the most of me. We should fight for humanity not just for our own people.
Yes, because your people consists of everyone. Pacifism is the key ideology to alleviating global turmoil. We must work together.
Michael explains the reality of taking an oath in the military.
Joe believes he is serving to protect his country but Michael believes the way to unify is not to kill but by unifying.
Joe finally understands and realizes that it is in fact more important to account for the greater good of humanity than just his own people.
