PHL378: War & Morality LEC10 – Interventions Oct, 13th, 2009 Lackey: pg. 35 5 article in charter of UN 51 article war is only just if it is fought in defence of aggression legalist paradigm would condemn any intervention of state A in state B as in our examples: ie. Cambodia, Vietnam we hold a atom view of the body rights of a person, translated to legalism paradigm, we would say that the preservation of the state is a all or nothing thing, just as you cannot protect your arm over your intestine, states will use any means to protect their whole this is the UN view (restrictive) Luben: government have legitimacy only if the ppl transfer their rights onto the state pg. 201: ppl have a right to the government they prescribe to horizontal contracts: b/w members of the group this gives rise to a ppl / nation vertical contract: b/w horizontal contract / individuals to the state/sovereign this is a legitimate state aggression violates a states right only if it the state has these rights if illegitimate contract is present, then there is no right to violate, hence aggression is permissible intervention is permitted if the state is not legitimate Waltzer succession Hungarian revolution of 1848 Hungary decide to succeed from Austria empire Austrian empire calls Tsar to ask for aid & Russians agree in order for outsiders to intervene the succession movement has to have popular support, effective control of territory, pg. 93 Mill: “Austrian government in Hungary was a yoke...... argues against Mill, there does not need to be some prior intervention, we should be able to intervene if the above 2 conditions are met (ie. popular support, territorial control) succession against colonial power Waltzer is sympathetic to competent authority, his definition is similar to the legalism paradigm in that he is describing the succession movement as legitimate if it is in effect a state (popular support, control of territory)
