One acts by leaking information unlawfully, the other by taking law into his hands. Both in their minds are doing the right thing. Is itjust the U.S. problem, or is it the global problem of have’s and havenot’s? Isit the problem of technology growth and our inability to deal with it?
About ten years ago I started the Non-violence Award for promoting non-violence in youth. My dilemma is that we talk about achieving peace but with violence. Our Governments give example to youth about achieving peace globally with violent means. I believe we get the ‘peace’ wrong. Peace must be achieved peacefully or with non-violence means and without causing social disturbances.
Can we rid society of violence while making firearms easilyavailable at the same time?
I recently have found two graduate students who have decidedto work with the Award, and re-launch it globally again. Getting a few journalists on board shouldn't hurt.
Your thoughts are welcome!
