The Ideology of Empire: A New from "America's Attic"
Dialogue : A Journal of Mormon Thought
This essay will not argue for or against any specific view, although I do use several wars in which the United States has been involved as mostly negative examples of wars that are not in the United States's best interests and not in Mormons' best interests either. As a result, my personal anti-war opinion will be hard to hide. But the examples are meant to illustrate a methodology by which one can form specific political opinions and express them, stripped of implicit assumptions of which we may not be aware, and which are not definitive of Mormonism in any case, even when expressed in Mormon cultural terms.
