For Monday, October 15

Read Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech, “Why I’m opposed to the Vietnam War,” and be sure to answer the questions at the end.  A few may ask you to consider larger moral issues, so give yourself some time and space to explore your thoughts on the issues.  Additionally, I’d like you to write a journal entry that wrestles with McNamara’s question, “What makes it immoral if you lose and not immoral if you win?”

As you’re considering the question, ask yourself when and how you’ve seen this issue come up in history, why this seems to happen, and whether it is something that should be changed or not.  I’ll give us some time at the beginning of class for you to voice your ideas, so be prepared to share.
