In thinking about the essays you’ve read, one of the most obvious questions is: how does war differ from terrorism (if at all)? What is the distinction between the two? Is it really the case that “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”? Why might someone agree or disagree? Are certain tactics always illegitimate? What would make a war a just war? Can war ever be waged morally, or is pacifism the only morally legitimate position we can hold? Can torture ever be used morally, or is it always wrong? If it is always wrong, does that mean there would never be situations where it is nevertheless forgivable?
