Olympia FOR YouTube Videos on Nonviolence

October 2012 Nonviolence in the Real World http://youtu.be/5gVkB56Ualg Our October 2012 TV program clarifies what nonviolence is (and is not).  It emphasizes how nonviolence is practical at both large scale (national and international) levels and small-scale (interpersonal and family) levels. Not only is nonviolence practical, but it also is strongly urged by Jesus.  This also might come as a surprise to some viewers.  We’ll explain how Jesus was promoting this “Third Way,” and how the Early Church was strongly committed to nonviolence. Our guest is Glen Gersmehl, National Coordinator of the Lutheran Peace Fellowship, which is based in Seattle. Nonviolence really is practical.  For several decades a number of researchers and writers have compiled historical information showing that nonviolence has a long and successful history. 

February 2011 A Nonviolent Society for the Common Good
http://youtu.be/AKbhsb5XpWM In recent years American society has experienced a serious upsurge of anti-government rhetoric, including threats of violence against members of Congress – and in January an actual shooting. The Olympia FOR’s February TV program asks: Are these interconnected? Do they have common roots? Can we find solutions that will resolve these problems and restore our public ethics and our common humanity? How could we reduce fear and violence and build a society that is secure and nonviolent? Our two guests –Larry Kerschner and Becky Liebman are knowledgeable, wise and compassionate about these matters. They explore the problems and generate positive solutions.
