Analysis in Walker’s Article Walker’s article makes two claims that, upon further analysis, are either innately contradictory, or at best do not accommodate each other in the way Walker wishes them to do.

Claim 2.: ...our real struggle is supernatural (2) Walker is perfectly correct when he judges Prohibition to have failed because of the way in which it addressed compliance with the law rather than conviction of the heart; indeed, it is this insight that is behind Claim 1.
