Abstract:     
This article compares, contrasts, and explores the connections between liberation theology and the author's post-subordinationist jurisprudential doctrine, humanity consciousness. The article uses these alternative theoretical lenses to evaluate the United States' military response to the threat posed by Middle Eastern Islamic terrorists. The article asserts that both liberation theology and humanity consciousness bring to the critique of law and foreign policy an appeal to spirituality as a progressive force of social change. When linked with critically informed advocacy, this appeal to spirituality can bring about deeply meaningful transformations within individuals that lead to meaningful changes within the law.
