“Re-Thinking National Security” — Read my article or click link to watch my worldwide speaking engagement

A participant in the course I co-teach (along with three other members of the Olympia Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons) told the people at a progressive California-based organization that they should invite me to speak about a peace-related topic to their worldwide audience (about 1/3 of the participants in the U.S. and Canada, about 1/3 in Europe, and about 1/3 in Asia, Africa and Latin America).  They invited me to be the featured speaker for today’s worldwide Zoom broadcast.


On March 10, 2021, I delivered a presentation I had recently developed, “Re-Thinking National Security.”  They recorded this Zoom event.  If you missed it, you can watch it at the following link.  The dark blue rectangle at this link says you need to create a free account if you’re not already a member.  Their topics have been on very interesting topics.

Here is the link to watch my presentation from March 10, 2021:



Also, here is an essay I wrote that is similar to what I said during that worldwide Zoom event:
