Default Re: Warists, gender ambiguity and hope for Eli

Alright Wonderment. There are some people who are pacifists, and they oppose war always. When non-pacifists call pacifists or doves peacenicks, there is a sly reference to Bolshevism because of the suffix. Often however peacenick is really just a derisive term for someone who opposes a particular war. So warist, i think, is fair turnabout. But the term may be redundant. There is hawk and the somewhat more neutral, alarmist. And given the violence done to neocon in the past five years, you've got that. Don't forget militarist and war monger. Running dog has had its uses for decades among the anti-war camp too. For my part, I will be more precise in the future and use pacifist when describing Quaker types, and when I want to connote someone's bolshevism, I will use either Soviet, bolshevik or perhaps dirty commie-hippie .

I appreciate the kind words too.
