A discussion between
Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber and J. G. Weightman
How far should one carry obedience to the dictates of conscience and political belief when these conflict with one's duties as a citizen? A number of desertions from the French Army and recent arrests of Frenchmen for helping the Algerian rebel organisation in France have posed this problem for young Frenchmen who may sympathise with Algerian aspirations to independence
Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber , editor of L'Express, who himself was called up a few years ago to fight as a lieutenant in Algeria, talks about his own experience of the clash between conscience and duty with J G. Weightman , Lecturer in French at King's College, London.
