During the summer of 2014 Israel’s military conducted yet another massive assault on Palestine, especially Gaza, the small southern part of Palestine that borders Egypt. Israel’s military attacked innocent civilians and civilian infrastructure (homes, schools, etc.), and even a United Nations refugee camp. As usual, mainstream U.S. news media, politicians and government officials grossly misrepresented what was really happening. They put nearly all of the blame on Palestine and made it seem that Israel’s government was merely defending itself. They implied equal danger […]

Most of the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s TV programs examine substantive issues such as nuclear weapons, foreign policy, or economics by laying out the hard facts. But in some months – including November 2014 – we look at the world around us through inspiring stories and the values and insights that guide our lives. Olympia FOR’s November 2014 interview begins by recognizing that the world’s problems result from a dominant worldview that is selfish and harsh. It causes problems for people and for the environment. To solve these problems, we need the opposite […]
The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s June 2017 TV program focuses on a crisis that Congress and Obama and Trump have been making much worse. But this crisis has been largely ignored by mainstream news media and the general public. Decades after the Cold War ended, the U.S. is recklessly provoking a new nuclear arms race! It’s bad enough that our government continues its dangerous intentions to use nuclear weapons. But now our government wants to replace our thousands of nu-clear weapons with horribly expensive new ones. Some of these are designed to be more usable – more likely to actually […]
In mid-November 2017 I compiled some recent important news and information about nuclear weapons. Read the article at this link: 2017 Autumn news
The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s October 2015 TV program celebrates highlights about the FOR’s 100 years of accomplishments in the United States. The national FOR has accomplished much, but usually has been too modest about promoting itself. The FOR works well with other organizations and wants to accomplish good work, regardless of who gets the credit for doing it. As a result, although the FOR is not very well known, it has actually accomplished quite a lot during the past 100 years. This TV program highlights only a few of the fascinating pieces of the past 100 years, but we […]
Usually the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s TV program focuses on one specific issue, but for April 2016 we share some stories of people who have acted boldly and nonviolently for peace, social justice, and the well-being of the human community. These stories come from many parts of the world. Some happened long ago, and some only recently. Too often we hear news of violence and oppression, but not often enough do we hear about people who have acted boldly and positively to correct the problems. When all we hear is bad news, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and to become […]
Fifty years ago the U.S. was massively escalating the war in Vietnam. Recently the Pentagon launched an expensive propaganda campaign to whitewash what really happened and to glorify the Vietnam War as a noble effort. The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s May 2016 TV program counters that with truthful information that the Pentagon does not want you to know. Two guests – Larry Kerschner and Mark Fleming – help us explore this topic. Both guests served in the U.S. army in Vietnam. Both went back to Vietnam recently for peace-related purposes. Both are active with Veterans for Peace (VFP) and with […]
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 […]
