More Quakers

Not only are they pacifists, but they might be communists as well, according to old FBI files. Apparently in 1960 a Quaker group sent out letters informing young men that they could register as conscientious objectors, so that, if they didn’t want to kill, they wouldn’t have to if drafted. Quite frightening indeed. Well worth the 314 pages of information material that the FBI has released.

The Quakers sent 22,000 of these letters.
