Martin Luther King, Jr., said these things about various issues

January 8, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

When people refer to MLK as the “Reverend Dr.,” they are recognizing that he did indeed earn a Ph.D. in philosophy in addition to completing formal theological studies and being ordained.  He thought clearly and wisely.  Below I’m sharing with you some things he said about several different issues — and always grounded in humane ethics.     On April 4, 1967, King spoke about the Vietnam war and overall U.S. foreign policy to an audience at Riverside Church in New York City.  Many of the things he said there have been quoted widely.  He explicitly denounced the injustices and […]

Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW): 2nd anniversary of going into effect is Jan. 22, 2023

January 8, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Yes, it REALLY IS POSSIBLE to abolish nuclear weapons!!! In July 2017, nearly 2/3 of the nations in the U.N. General Assembly (122 of 193 nations) approved the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) so it could go out to the world’s nations for ratification. By early January 2023, a total of 68 (one-third of the nations in the United Nations General Assembly) had RATIFIED a treaty to TOTALLY ABOLISH ALL nuclear weapons, so this treaty is in their national laws!!! It went into effect for those 68 nations on January 22, 2021.   Now the world is […]

Martin Luther King strongly opposed nuclear weapons — and publicly since 1957

January 2, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Martin Luther King, Jr., understood the connections among a variety of issues and how they intersected with race, economics, peace, and so forth. He publicly stated his opposition to nuclear weapons many times.  He wrote this in an Ebony Magazine article way back in 1957:  “I definitely feel that the development and use of nuclear weapons of war should be banned. It cannot be disputed that a full scale nuclear war would be utterly catastrophic. Hundreds and millions of people would be killed outright by the blast and heat, and by the ionizing radiation produced at the instant of the […]

Three Steps to Nuclear Disarmament

December 24, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The January 2023 program on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series provides fresh information and insights toward abolishing nuclear weapons. Besides facts, we provide a positive “can-do” attitude with practical strategies.  We explain things clearly enough so people who do not already know much about nuclear weapons will easily understand and become enthusiastic about abolishing them. One truly expert guest – Tom Rogers – helps us explore this topic.  Tom Rogers retired from the U.S. Navy in 1998 after a 32-year career as a submarine officer.  He commanded a nuclear attack submarine during the Cold War.  When the Cold War ended […]

Nuclear Weapons and the Peace Movement

November 21, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Below I’m attaching an essay I wrote that fleshes out the 6 points I made very briefly in the speaking engagement about the need for a grassroots peace movement to abolish nuclear weapons:     The U.S. has been provoking nuclear weapons since 1945.   Nuclear weapons exist in the overall context of U.S. foreign policy. We must de-militarize our foreign policy overall as well as abolish nuclear weapons.   The problems came from the top down, so solutions must come from the bottom up. Only a nonviolent GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT can change our foreign policy and abolish nuclear weapons.   […]

Nuclear weapons: How the U.S. provoked the arms race, escalated it, and trapped the world in nuclear terror

November 19, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Ever since 1945, the vast majority of Americans believed what the government said about nuclear weapons.  Not only did the politicians tell us what to believe, but – as always – the mainstream news media reinforced the official government messages.  Here are some crucial steps in how the U.S. trapped the world in nuclear weapons: #1. Since the 1940s, the U.S. government – and mainstream news media – have been telling us that our nuclear weapons are a “deterrent” that prevent nations from attacking us.  Actually, the U.S. military could repel any attempted invasion without using nuclear weapons. #2. The […]

Biden, etc., are stuck in a manic Cold War obsession that could destroy the world in nuclear war

November 10, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Biden filled his foreign policy positions with appointees who share Biden’s Cold War mania and bias in favor of militarism — instead of honest diplomacy and peace. For example, he appointed Anthony Blinkin to be his Secretary of State.  The State Department is the federal agency in charge of directing U.S. interactions with other nations.  Presidents should appoint to that position persons who are solidly committed to peace, honest diplomacy, etc.  Biden appointed Anthony Blinkin, whose career has focused on URGING OTHER NATIONS TO BUY MILITARY WEAPONS MADE BY U.S. CORPORATIONS.  That is how Joe Biden sees the role of […]
