Yes, we really can RE-DESIGN public safety away from typical policing! See many resources here!

May 3, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Finally — after many decades of trying to raise the issue — the general public (including a majority of white people) finally understands that our traditional methods of policing are ENDANGERING rather than protecting public safety.  The systemic racial injustices have become so obvious that the public is willing to consider alternatives to the long-standing status quo. Some localities have been experimenting successfully with fresh, humane, sensible, and cost-saving alternatives. HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES AND OTHER RESOURCES: This substantive proposal came from the National Urban League: On April 26, 2021, the National Urban League released a comprehensive framework for criminal […]

Local governments can oppose nuclear weapons!

March 25, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

It is common for the public — and elected officials and the media — to think about nuclear weapons as a national or international issue FAR REMOVED from YOUR local community.  But actually, if a nuclear war occurs (whether intentionally or by accident, miscalculation or computer error), YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY will be destroyed and LOCAL PEOPLE will be killed.  Therefore, NUCLEAR WEAPONS REALLY ARE A LOCAL ISSUE, so ordinary people and local governments must oppose nuclear weapons! To see what a nuclear weapon would do to YOUR local community, enter your zip code into this link:  And yes, it could […]

Besides Protesting What We Oppose, Let’s Organize Even More Vigorously to Accomplish Positive Goals

December 28, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

We need to keep protesting against the cruelty, corruption, injustice and violence that continually assault us.  But if we spend most of our time and efforts fighting the bad stuff, the oppressors will continue to have the upper hand because they can keep throwing bad stuff at us and we will always be on the defensive. We need to spend most of our time and efforts taking the initiative to organize for the positive goals that we want instead.  We need to be proactive, envision the future we want instead of the current mess, and organize to achieve the positive […]

August 29, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The June 2020 TV program for the “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series addresses the serious problems that we are experiencing and encourages people to boldly envision solutions. People know the status quo is bad – and they want to solve the problems. But nearly everybody is bogged down in feeling powerless.  They don’t feel empowered to solve the problems, and they don’t know how to proceed. This TV program — and the transcript I have posted at this link,  2020.06 BOLD FUTURE — TRANSCRIPT with MORE INFORMATION and RESOURCES — start by confronting the serious problems in our world, our nation, […]

We must build strong, savvy nonviolent grassroots “people-power” movements to achieve social and economic justice, to solve the climate crisis, and to create peace and other major goals. Governments and big businesses are the LAST to figure things out.  (Mainstream news media are the next-to-last.)  They will do what we want ONLY WHEN a strong nonviolent grassroots movement forces them to do what is needed.  Recent history has proved this a number of times.  (In the […]
