So, I'm in a moral quandary.
I've been freelancing a bit with a news site financed by the U.S. Department of Defense, but run by a defense contractor. Next year, I tend to move to D.C., and they have hinted at offering me a full-time job. It puts me in a Quaker quandary.
First, even though it's DOD, I'm not sure how much it actually serves a military capacity. There are so many statistics about how America spends more money on the military than the closest nine competitors combined. But what they fail to point out is that the U.S. also has comparatively one of the smallest foreign services, because we use military apparati to do such things.
Is working indirectly for the DOD in itself against Quaker Testimony? Is it possible to find a job that is not in this modern age? At least the DOD is somewhat upfront with what it stands for, as compared to many corporations, where we don't know what they're doing.
Can I do anything career-wise other than organic turnip farming and feel at peace?
