While I was visiting friends about a month ago, a discussion dealing with social current events ensued. More specifically, a discussion about war ensued.

I began the discussion by asking my friend if he'd ever heard the late Utah Philips talk about who's really responsible for the killing that takes place during war. Philips recorded his thoughts in a narrative he entitled "The Violence Within".

My friend hadn't heard this narrative, so, as I happened to have my laptop with me at the time and I had loaded the talk onto the laptop, I played it for him.

At this point, it may or may not be relevant to know a little about my friend and the ways in which we're of a like mind as well as the ways in which we are not.

If you've ever participated in a political poll you know that, at the end, the pollster asks about your educational background. The question is usually a multiple choice question. To paraphrase, the questions asks:

What is your level of education?

a) Graduated from elementary school

b) Graduated from high school

c) Attended some years of college

d) Have a college undergraduate degree

e) Have a post graduate degree.
