The same sense of “parallax” pertains to the TV programs as to this blog. We encourage people to see things from fresh perspectives. When the opening music comes up, I welcome the viewers and say something like this:
I’m Glen Anderson, producer and host of this TV series, “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives.”
This series explores a wide variety of issues related to peace, social and economic justice, the environment, and nonviolent social change.
We especially provide opportunities for the public to hear voices and viewpoints that are rarely heard in mainstream media.
Mainstream media, politicians, and culture see the world in conventional ways. The Establishment is stuck in how they see the world. In order to solve problems, we need to see things differently. This TV series – “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” – can help us see things differently so we can solve problems at all levels from the local to the global.
This series is called “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives.” Here is what the word “parallax” means. Put one finger in front of your nose and another finger farther away. Close one eye. Then open that eye and close the other. Your fingers will seem to move. This is called a “parallax” view.
This TV series invites you to look at issues from fresh perspectives.
