Faculty fellow Jim Golby co-authors new Task and Purpose article: "The case for rethinking the politicization of the military"

Jun 12, 2020

Faculty fellow Jim Golby and Mara Karlin have written an article in Task and Purpose to discuss the politicalization of the US Military. 

"We don’t want a military that is “apolitical”; we instead want a military that avoids partisanship, institutional endorsements, and electoral influence. Those topics should stay off limits, but politics are too critical to be entirely ignored by the military. The military is a political creature — it’s time for it to consider what that means in a more practical and appropriate manner."
