“The Non-violent Life:
- Real non-violence to yourself.
- Practice non-violence to all human beings, and all creatures, and all of creation.
- Have one foot in the global grassroots movement of non-violence.”

Governments find it hard to do the right thing for their people – why?
There are those who say that the idiots running Western and allied governments (the “civilized” countries) are pitching the world toward a pair of disasters, the full realization of either of which, in its most extreme form, would likely change life on earth for the worse for most folks, whether it’s the continuing, unabated nuclear meltdowns in Fukushima or the continuing, unabated political meltdown over Ukraine that risks nuclear war. There are also those who don’t say that these leaders are idiots. We’ll see how things turn out.

Dear President Obama:
As you ponder your potential moves regarding President Vladimir V. Putin’s annexation of Crimea (a large majority of its 2 million people are ethnic Russians), it is important to remember that whatever moral leverage you may have had in the court of world opinion has been sacrificed by the precedents set by previous American presidents who did not do what you say Mr. Putin should do – obey international law.
