Gandhi

Rev. Dr. James Lawson, who MLK Jr. called “leading theorist and strategist of nonviolence in the world,” on Satyagraha

On July 20, 2009, Rev. Dr. James Lawson and Dr. John G. Cobb Jr. participated in a panel discussion at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles entitled, “War, Violence and Religion: A Dialogue and Call to Action.”  The conversation was wide-ranging and, often, quite profound, but I was left wanting for discussion about the role of lies and deception in the historical orchestration and ongoing cultivation of wars.

 

Attention Activists: It’s Time to Grow Up, By Jesse Richard

Jesse has a point . . . . Maybe "satyagraha" is where we need to be . . . launched, ironically, on 9/11/06 by Mahatma Ghandi and implemented again by MLK, Jr in the 60's . . .

Attention Activists: It’s Time to Grow Up
By Jesse Richard

This is a message to all the well meaning people out there who try their best to make this world a better place, but in fact have no impact on the world, whatsoever. It is time to take your activism seriously.

The time has come to stop your ineffective tantrums and get serious. There are two ways to effect change when it comes to government: passive resistance and revolution. Our republic is broken and we no longer have representatives in government. Constantly asking our elected representatives to legislate on our behalf is not only a waste of time, but also totally unnecessary being that we have a government that no longer represents us.
