America started a war for “independence” just decades after it got going, and has been engaged in conflict every decade since. World War II was relatively mandatory, but of the hundreds of other actions, conflicts, strikes, and wars, the vast majority have been elective and meant to secure our national interests, broadly defined. Some would say that it was meant to secure business’ interests, which leads us to question our values. Jason invited Jenni Prisk, founder of the peace-activist group Voices of Women to discuss. She is also from New Zealand, so she was an ideal guest to reflect on the ethical issues surrounding American foreign policy.
