This is part of a continuing series exploring ways that Solitary Pagans can connect not only with the Greater Pagan Community, but how we can connect with our local communities and bring our unique perspectives and beliefs into the fabric of those communities.
Few words elicit dread the way that “jury duty” does for a lot of people. Personally, I find this drive to “get out of” jury duty to be disturbing as I have always wanted to serve on a jury but have never had the chance. I personally think this anti-jury duty perspective is based on the quite unrealistic way that juries are portrayed on television and in movies. I think most of the rest of it is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the importance of jury duty and how it works.
