Philosophy of Bumper Stickers: Extreme Pacifism

I spied this bumper sticker on campus (of all places!):

"I'm Already Against The Next War"

This perfectly characterizes the extreme "peace at any cost" pacifism that is so perilous to any society with moral scruples...a society that is looked to, as Reagan so aptly stated, as a city on a hill.

Here's a counter platitude for these extremists:

Peace is not the absence of war but the presence of justice.
