TV: “Racial Disparities in Criminal Justice System: Problems and Solutions”

November 20, 2017 GlenAnderson 0

Everybody knows that the criminal justice system in the United States is full of problems.  Some of the problems are well known, but our society and our political system seem unable or unwilling to solve them.  Yet workable solutions really do exist. The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s February 2014 TV program examines some of our criminal justice system’s problems — with a special emphasis on the racial disparities — and we also look at solutions. Three knowledgeable guests help us explore the topic: • Larry Jefferson has 17 years of experience as a defense attorney in King County and in […]

TV: “Militarism Is the Problem, Not the Solution”

During mid-2014, Thurston Community Television (TCTV, www.tctv.net) was replacing its production equipment, so we repeated a great program that we had aired in November 2012 and was still fully relevant now in 2014 — and up to the current day. To watch this 1-hour interview, click HERE. To read the brief summary below in .pdf format, click HERE. Since World War II – and especially since the Soviet Union collapsed more than 20 year ago – the US has been the world’s #1 military power. And, indeed, the US has used that military power continuously since the 1940s in many […]

TV: “TPP: A ‘Free Trade’ Scam Worse than NAFTA”

In mid-2014 Thurston Community Television (TCTV, www.tctv.net) was replacing its production equipment, so we repeated the great interview about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which we had aired in November 2013.  It was still relevant in 2014, so we aired it for our September 2014 program.  Public pressure had slowed down the TPP, but we had not yet stopped it.  “Free Trade” scams continue to be promoted by the U.S. government and big business.

TV: “De-Militarize U.S. Foreign Policy”

November 16, 2017 GlenAnderson 0

The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s October 2016 TV program critiques U.S. foreign policy, especially how – instead of providing national security – the U.S.’s military violence actually makes us less secure! The program also helps us understand why the government keeps using military violence. In our daily lives we know that violence is wrong and counter-productive, but the U.S. government routinely threatens and uses military violence all over the world. At the end of this hour we propose nonviolent and socially just ways to achieve more profound, holistic “security” not only for our nation, but for the entire world. You […]

TV: “Nonviolent Grassroots Remedies for Our Current Crisis”

November 16, 2017 GlenAnderson 0

People who support human rights, civil liberties, environmental quality, the climate, and other humane values were stunned by the November 2016 election and fear radical damage to these aspects of our civilization and ecosystems. While the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s December 2016 TV program (see www.olympiafor.org/tv_programs.htm) does an excellent job of helping people understand people’s feelings and other realities related to the election, our January 2017 TV program helps us figure out where to go from here. Many people fear radical damage to human rights, civil liberties, the environment, and other necessities, and so forth. Some people feel overwhelmed and […]

TV: “Protect America’s Best Values from Attack”

November 16, 2017 GlenAnderson 0

Watch the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s March 2017 TV program, which helps our viewers and our nation resist the attacks that are being inflicted upon our nation’s people, environment, and democracy. We can withstand this storm if we stay grounded in the best values that our nation has affirmed since the 1770s – and if we act upon our best values to protect all of our people, our environment, and our democracy. Furthermore, this kind of grounding can also help us avoid getting stuck in reactive, defensive mode. Grounding in good values can actually empower our-selves to make progress. Most […]

TV: “Political Despair or Empowerment: It’s Your Choice!”

November 15, 2017 GlenAnderson 0

Watch a 1-hour interview about how to cope with the political despair so many people are feeling after the November 2016 election. This month we’ll discuss the anxiety, fear and despair that many Americans are feeling about our nation’s current political crisis – and what we can do about that.  Many people have been alarmed by the cruel attacks coming from the federal government and other right-wing sources. As a result, some people feel overwhelmed with anxiety, fear and despair. Besides doing things to take care of ourselves, many Americans also are choosing to empower ourselves, work together, and use […]
