Realists argue that war is a non-moral activity – actions such as killing or stealing may be wrong for individuals, but have no application to nations in times of war. Pacifists reject all war in favour of peace. The use of force is always wrong, even in self-defence, and so pacifism rejects both the Just War theory and Realism.

Christians, in the years Pacifists and realists. book the Great War until the end of the Second War, continued divided. There were those who regretted war but felt it sometimes necessary. Prominent here was the American Lutheran theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr.

His “Christian realism” started with original sin but did not follow a strict just-war-theory line. He argued that privately we ought to follow Jesus and Author: Michael Ruse.

Not all Christian realists will view it this way, of course. My position is very much informed by Reformed social thought, Augustine, and. War may in, some ways, be beneficial despite its costs.

War is a non-moral activity - on a individual level killing and stealing are wrong, but this doesn't apply to war. Warring nations cannot be criticised for how the war is fought.

A nation has the right to protect its own. The realists want to regulate war, including nuclear war, and the nuclear pacifists want to prevent and even eliminate war, especially nuclear war.

The realists, authors such as William O‘Brien, James T. Johnson, Paul Ramsey, and John Courtney Murray[1], have the goal of applying just-war thought to the regulation of wqarfare. The fiftieth anniversary of Paul Ramsey’s book, The Just War: Force and Political Responsibility, is an appropriate time to recognize its enduring impact upon the just war tradition and upon Christians trying to bring theology to bear on issues of war and political statecraft.

In fact, the liberal institutionalists focus on human nature, while the commercial pacifists emphasize domestic society, and last but not least the liberal internationalists concentrate on the interstate system.

If realists are seen as war-mongering pragmatists, just war thinkers are seen as na\u00EFve at best and pacifistic at worst.

Just war thought is imagined as speaking truth to power - forcing realist decision-makers to abide by moral limits governing the ends and means of the use of force.

Although pacifists were not very active in the United States during the Korean War in the early s, this was not the case during the Vietnam War in the s and early 70s; pacifists and other antiwar groups joined together for several major protest marches in Washington, D.C.

and other cities. Pacifism- Not being inclined towards the use of force. This is not trepidation. Realism- Understanding how globally acceptable moral prerogatives determine and control war.

The pacifists can point out that history furnishes melancholy justification for their successive contentions: (1) that the right sort of America could have used its immense social and moral power.

The first of these propositions is denied by the pacifists, who believe that war is a criminal act; and the second is denied by the realists, for whom “all’s fair in love and war”: inter.

Each country is assigned an ideology. Nations with the same ideology as yours will be easier to conquer and occupy, while nations with different ideologies will put up greater resistance.
