“Active Nonviolence in Daily Life” — My speaking engagement includes practical and religious aspects

November 6, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Olympia’s Westminster Presbyterian Church invited me to speak there about “Active Nonviolence in Daily Life” on Sunday October 8, 2023. I prepared a message that solidly delivered on the topic they gave me.  The audience liked very much – and they told me so.  Although this was a speaking engagement rather than a sermon, one person said it was the best sermon they had ever heard.  Much of what I said will be new to the friends and family members to whom I’m sending this e-mail. I shared: Insights into understanding profoundly what nonviolence is – and why it is […]

The “War on Terror” actually provokes more terror — and other problems, including mass migration

August 22, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

What the War on Terror Has to Do With the Rise in Mass Migration:  The war on terror has led to the displacement of at least 38 million people, many of whom fled for their lives as fighting consumed their worlds.   For two decades, presidents in BOTH big political parties have been escalating the U.S.’s “War on Terror” in Africa, but this has produced more violence, wars, terrorism and even national military coups.  Pentagon says terror attacks in Africa increased 300% over last decade  As the United States has quietly expanded its military footprint in Africa, the violence […]

War hawks promote war with China. We must PREVENT that!

March 4, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Much smart research — and many smart articles — have exposed the hard reality that much of the U.S.’s foreign policy is driven by military weapons manufacturers that profit by promoting our militaristic foreign policy. Also, many politicians promote nationalism and militarism as a way to rally voters to cheer for them.   Now powerful forces are rallying the U.S. to support a war with China — or if not an actual war, at least the steps leading up to war.  They don’t seem to recognize that wars fail to solve problems.  Also, they don’t seem to realize that the […]

Slash the Military-Industrial Complex. Cutting the Pentagon Budget in Half Would Finally Force the Generals to Think

February 28, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Here’s an interesting article about this:   A new book says Eisenhower was right:  The US military budget is ‘a theft from those who hunger.’  The book also provides information about protesting for peace.  See this:   A new effort in the U.S. House would reduce wasteful Pentagon spending and redirect funds to critical basic needs. The first few short paragraphs of the article I linked below say this: Today Reps. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Mark Pocan (D-WI) reintroduced the People Over Pentagon Act, which would cut $100 billion in defense spending and reallocate the funds to human […]

TV + online: “Smart Strategies to Organize for Peace and No Nuclear Weapons”

February 23, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The March 2023 program on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series provides fresh insights and smart strategies to help us achieve peace in the world and abolish nuclear weapons worldwide. In this TV program, I address these main points: Point #1.    The U.S. has been provoking nuclear weapons since the 1940s. Point #2.    Nuclear weapons exist in the overall context of U.S. foreign policy.  To achieve peace, we must debunk the MISTAKEN ASSUMPTIONS that have trapped us in endless wars and the suicide of nuclear weapons. To get out of those traps, we must think clearly and creatively – and de-militarize […]

House Republicans use the phony-baloney “debt ceiling” to hold the U.S. hostage and cut programs we really need

February 4, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Mainstream news media keep giving credibility to Republican propaganda about the “debt ceiling.” The “debt ceiling” is NOT in the Constitution.  It is simply a law that could be repealed, but Democrats keep failing to take that necessary action.  Congress has routinely increased it — including in every year of the Trump regime — but when Republican Newt Gingrich had power in the House and when Democrats Obama and Biden have been President, Republicans act like terrorists and hold our nation hostage and threaten to shut down our government because they want to cut spending for programs we really need, […]

The “debt ceiling” is a Republican scam to prevent funding programs we need.

January 25, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The media are currently obsessed with the “debt ceiling” and are grossly distorting the realities! The “debt ceiling” is NOT in the Constitution.  It’s just a law — a law that has been changed many times. Republicans keep using it to bully Democrats into cutting Social Security, Medicare, and other important programs that people really need.  Republicans NEVER call for cutting the Pentagon budget. Spending is one side of the ledger.  The other side is TAXES.  Republican who are worried about deficits and the public debt NEVER call for raising taxes on RICH PEOPLE or BIG BUSINESSES.  They want to […]

Click to tell Congress: Cut the Pentagon Budget! Fund human needs!

January 18, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

It’s the 62nd anniversary of Pres. Eisenhower’s warning against the “military industrial complex.” Now marks an urgent moment to act. Right now, we’re hearing calls to CUT government spending, but too many in Congress think social programs should face the ax, NOT hundreds of billions for weapons and war. We cannot accept this as our fate. Let’s break this cycle and redirect resources towards programs that truly benefit ALL people.  Now is the time for action. To curb the military industrial complex’s influence in our government, tell Congress to cut the Pentagon budget, NOT funding for social programs.     […]
