This chapter examines the social structures within which Protestant pacifism flourished and the routes by which people became pacifists. Pacifist culture is similar to a spider web, spreading outward from center to perimeter, with crosspieces connecting the radii at various points. Protestants exploring pacifism might begin at almost any point on the perimeter—they might follow one strand directly to the center or might travel along several of the crosspieces to other radii, but eventually they would reach the same center. An impact at any point in the web would affect the whole thing. The chapter shows how those social structures and channels of transmission changed around 1940, one manifestation of the paradigm shift that was taking place.
