Biden should take these smart actions toward nuclear disarmament in his first 100 days

January 19, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Trump radically escalated the dangers of nuclear war. Biden can reduce those dangers IF WE URGE BIDEN TO TAKE SMART ACTIONS.   This morning I was one of more than 400 persons who participated in a worldwide Zoom meeting conducted by the Arms Control Association (www.armscontrol.org).  They titled this event, “Nuclear Challenges for the Biden Administration in the First 100 Days.” They efficiently presented a lot of information from several experts.  They recorded the Zoom event and will post it to their website reasonably soon. Recently the Arms Control Association presented their new report, which was titled  he speakers will […]

FRI JAN 22: Street-corner vigiling supports the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

January 9, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons goes into effect on FRIDAY JANUARY 22. Huge international support exists — especially throughout the global South. None of the nine nations with nuclear weapons supported this treaty when the United Nations General Assembly adopted it overwhelmingly (122 nations!) in July 2017.  The Trump administration vigorously and maliciously opposed it. Now that enough nations have ratified the Treaty, it will go into effect on January 22, 2021. Please see this flyer, which provides information and invites you to help publicize this historically powerful event in whatever local community you might live in: […]

Now We Empower Ourselves to Achieve Bold Goals

The January 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV program will help YOU make progress on the issues YOU care about. Many of our nation’s problems had existed for a very long time.  These include racial injustice, economic inequality, environmental problems, a foreign policy that is both cruel and violent, and some dysfunctional aspects of our electoral systems.  From 2017 through 2020, Trump made these and other problems even worse.  Really, this goes beyond partisanship.  Many of our nation’s problems are long-standing and bi-partisan.  The American people have values that are better, wiser, more compassionate, and more progressive than either of […]

Non-profit orgs provides resources and truly smart proposals for a peaceful U.S. foreign policy

December 15, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

For four years Trump made the U.S.’s cruel, violent, counter-productive foreign policy even worse.  Joe Biden will most likely retreat from some of Trump’s worst foreign policy blunders, but Biden has a decades-long track record of supporting wars and recklessly cruel, unjust foreign policies and unnecessary military weapons. Therefore, returning from Trumpism to “normal” is NOT ENOUGH!  We need a TRULY PEACEFUL foreign policy, not “American Exceptionalism” and what Senator William Fulbright called “the arrogance of Power.”  We must replace the threats of violence, the actual wars, the bloated budgets, and the contempt for international law that have defined U.S. […]

Biden should take these steps for peace.

The U.S.’s foreign policy has been provoking people into becoming terrorists.  We need to push Biden into boldly changing that persistent pattern.  If the Biden administration really wants to stop fueling chaos and terrorism in the world, it must radically transform the CIA.  https://www.nationofchange.org/2020/12/14/will-bidens-america-stop-creating-terrorists/   Sign petition urging Biden to End Trump’s Coercive Measures Against the International Criminal Court: The International Criminal Court has been investigating the actions of all parties to the war in Afghanistan and potentially investigating Israel’s actions in Palestine.  Trump has always refused to be held accountable for his crimes and other mistakes.  This is consistent with the U.S. […]
