When we think of a “conscientious objector” – an individual who has claimed the right to refuse to perform military service – many people think of hippies or artists. Others consider these people to be cowards or afraid to fight in a war their country is waging. My thoughts always go to an old “All in the Family” episode when Archie Bunker refuses to have dinner with one of his son-in-law’s friends who escaped to Canada during Vietnam. Strangely, this is only a Hollywood version of the conscientious objector. Many protestors do it based solely on religious reasons. There are some that you’d never expect to go against a war. Here are five of them.
Game of Thrones is right around the corner and people are gearing up for the new season. After last year’s storyline, how could things get worse? Somewhere, I think George R.R. Martin is laughing at that thought. Things don’t seem to be going very well for the good people in the Seven Kingdoms and they are in store for more trouble, that’s for sure. One of the things we’ve seen in the previous episodes is that everyone is not as bad as we first thought. Some of the people you initially pegged as downright evil have some redeeming qualities and when you look at things from their point of view, they really aren’t all that bad. Here is my list of “good” people I thought were initially evil. See if you agree. WARNING: Spoiler alert ahead if you are behind in the TV series.
