The July 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you and other people make more progress when we work on issues you care about.
Many of the issues we care about are HUGE issues in which WE are the UNDERDOGS. Powerful forces created the unjust status quo — and powerful forces sustain the injustices we are trying to eliminate.
Because we are the underdogs in these big issues, we need to empower ourselves and bring many people together so we can organize large nonviolent grassroots movements to solve the problems and create peaceful and just societies at the local, national and global levels.
But often people feel powerless – as if we are too small and the oppressive powers are too big. We need to empower ourselves – and we can empower ourselves if we are grounded in profound nonviolence and if we have the skills and strategies to organize winning campaigns.
Thurston County’s people with cable TV can watch it 13 times throughout July 2021 on channel 22 (every Monday at 1:30 pm, every Wednesday at 5:00 pm, and every Thursday at 9:00 pm).
