A WORLD WITHOUT WAR is the message from DAVID SWANSON, author, activist and Nobel Prize nominee. David’s many books, campaigns and an upcoming conference underscore his conviction that war can (and must) be eliminated from the behavior of our nations.
David speaks regularly throughout the world on issues of non-violence and conflict resolution without organized warfare. He warns that both major presidential candidates this year are deeply involved with the war-for-profit mentality. We discuss along those lines the current addiction to war that is dragging down the American nation. The annual US expenditure of more than $1,000,000,000,000,000 could easily solve the world’s problems with hunger, injustice and ecological devastation. But our Puritan-corporate establishment has become too deeply tied to a state of permanent war without which the country can’t seem to exist.
In this show we discuss David’s upcoming conference on war in Washington DC. David also talks in fascinating detail about the necessary conversion to toal non=-violence, touching in passing on how a non-violent campaign might have dealt with Hitler’s Nazis.
David is a brilliant, uniquely challenging guest. If you are at all interested in a world without war, don’t miss this discussion.
