Stop gun violence! –> Stop nuclear weapons!

March 24, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Stop gun violence — Stop nuclear weapons The link immediately above says this: Guns are designed to kill one person or dozens.  Nuclear weapons are designed to kill millions or hundreds of millions. Guns and nuclear weapons are rooted in similar problems: • Anger and fear cause someone to shoot a gun – and also to build and launch nuclear weapons. • A temporary impulse can shoot a gun – or start a nuclear war. • Big business corporations build guns and nuclear weapons for profits. • Manufacturers of guns and nuclear weapons bribe and lobby Congress to continue building […]

“Voter-Owned Elections: Replace Special Interests’ Big-Money Financing.” This is necessary in order to really solve our nation’s health care crisis.

March 23, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s November 2009 TV program is still timely now! It focuses on how big money has corrupted our elections, so we need to empower voters to replace the “special interests” that fund our elections. As a case study about this, we pay special attention to our grossly inadequate health care system. Universal Single-Payer would be a much better alternative to our current system, but insurance and pharmaceutical companies pay big money to political candidates in order to prevent the government from replacing our current bad system with a great alternative. To watch the interview with two […]

TV: “Sell Off All Fossil Fuel Investments Now”

March 18, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

The April 2018 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” explores an important aspect of the climate crisis that has been largely neglected. If people pay attention to this aspect, we can protect the climate and also save ourselves from serious financial losses. The climate crisis has forced the world to start significantly shifting away from coal and oil. We must shift away from all fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) much more rapidly in order to protect Planet Earth – and all of us – from catastrophic climate disruptions. Sharply reducing our consumption of fossil fuels will financially hurt the […]

Watergate book & film “All the President’s Men” is highly relevant now!

March 13, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Last night I watched the feature film “All the President’s Men,” which accurately lays out the Watergate scandal and the criminality of Nixon’s administration.  I had watched the film a number of years before and read the book many years before that. Now it is more relevant than ever, especially because: — The extremely corrupt Trump regime is violating the Constitution and the rule of law — News media nowadays do not dedicate themselves to investigative reporting and seeking the truth, nearly so much as they did before — Media consolidation — especially by right-wing owners — has created enormous […]

Korea’s People — Both North and South — Want Peace

March 3, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Unlike many nations that are comprised of several ethnic groups, Korea’s people — both North and South — are all the same:  They are Koreans.  One ethnic group.  The arbitrary line that divided their nation in the early 1950s has absolutely no basis in ethnicity or culture or geography or any other understandable justification.  It was imposed upon them to provide a temporary division related to the Korean War from the early 1950s. The Korean War never ended.  We’ve had a cease-fire but no formal peace treaty. The Korean people — both North and South — have family members on […]

Prevent Trump’s war against Iran

March 3, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Decent people must prevent Trump from starting a totally unnecessary war against Iran. Obama helped the U.S., France, Germany, United Kingdom, Russia, China and Iran use diplomacy to create a deal that stopped Iran’s nuclear weapons program. This Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has been working very well. The only people who oppose the JCPOA are Trump and hawks who have always wanted war against Iran. George W. Bush lied and falsely claimed that Iraq was building certain weapons. Bush rejected diplomacy in order to start his war against Iraq in 2003 – a war we are still fighting. […]
