AN OVERVIEW OF CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTION.

There is a very wise and considered viewpoint made in the Chambers's encyclopedia volume 10, page 304b. It states, "It might be found possible to give a relative justification to the natural use of war in extreme cases, while reserving a growing place for those individuals, who on positive and Christian grounds earmark themselves for the exclusive use of loving service as the means whereby evil is to be met. Such a distinction of functions would bear some resemblance to the recognition of the Monastic orders of medieaval times, and moreover it would still leave ample room for all practical peace-making efforts, in which even pacifists could share on political lines".
