The Essence of Just War Theory

Check out my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:

If more people adopted the Just War Tradition, we would almost definitely have fewer wars.

That said, perhaps even Just War Theory, while simple in principle, is too complicated in practice.

The question I would ask myself is, when wouldI go to war?

There is one plain answer: when the alternative is starvation or certain death for me and my family. I'd fight a war to survive.
