One of the most complete treatments of the war tax issue. The federal income tax is the chief link connecting each individual's daily labor with the tremendous buildup for war. Peace is elusive because governments are sold on the assumption that the threat of violence will preserve or redeem every situation. The author explores the moral implications for persons conscientiously opposed to paying for war. He traces biblical and historical precedents and discusses a dozen viable options to the ethical dilemma today. This enhanced edition is strengthened by the addition of insights from 42 writers. Recognizing that the U.S. Government now has a Federal budget where military priorities trump all needs, this reprint of The Tax Dilemma could not be more timely. Together with other resources it will enable us to find alternatives to tax-supported violence.
