If the ethical tradition of Just War theory were taken seriously by most of its adherents, most of them would in practice be basically pacificists.

at the very least, it ought to be incredibly hard to convince Christians to undertake military service. but on the contrary, it's very hard to convince them that it might be even open to questioning.

I honestly don't understand why people think the NTs reportage of John the Baptist's non-condemnation of military service should be read as a Christian endorsement of it. I mean, I do understand why, they're just wrong.

so that even when they begin to get past the 'wooden' stage, and appreciate nuances, it remains stubbornly difficult to uproot the idea that the whole 'thing' is _about_ translating.

hoc est: students get trained to think that you can just plug the right words in and produce a truly correct translation. the idea that every translation *irreducibly* involves addition and subtraction of meaning escapes them

the fixation on 'correct' translation in most intro Greek and Latin courses leads to persistent falsities about the translatability of language which become very hard to un-do.

For my part, I think every student ought to know and understand the labor conditions of those that teach them.

If I received even 50% of what my (college) students pay in tuition, I could teach full courses, fund research, and have a decent living wage for myself and family.
