    Hi Arthur,

    If you liked this, you’d probably like the column I write for WagingNonviolence.org, which is directed to people wanting practical information that will help them be the most powerful they can be in these times. The online publication archives over 125 of my already-published brief articles, all the way from what to do if somebody attacks you violently, to how to build a group that experiences community as it campaigns for change, to what to do when a white supremacist or neo-fascist group comes to your town. As you know, my approach is about positivity, not prophecies of doom, and that’s why people so much like my latest book How We Win.

    Hope our paths cross soon! I’m traveling a lot, considered by my Meeting as travel in the ministry for equality and nonviolence.

    George

    Thank you so much for this. I feel moved to act in non-violence, but sense a similar lack of cohesive goal in expressing opinion publicly. Crisis/opportunity, indeed!
    How funny that the Puritans called Quakers “Raging Wolves”!
    Hope to read your book. Just finished Solnit’s “Hope in the Dark”. We the people must act – you and Naomi Klein join my hero list, with Rebecca Solnit!
