This chapter discusses the relevance of the play The Trial of the Catonsville Nine. It addresses the question: How does one live as a human being, citizen, professional, and Christian of conscience in the midst of the most virulent empire in the history of the world? It discusses how the U.S. was becoming more militaristic, consumeristic, exploitative, and imperialistic as evidenced by the two wars in the Gulf, the self-contradictory terrorist war against terrorism in Afghanistan, and the intervention in Kosovo.
