Otto Dix – precursor to Picasso’s Guerica. No To War! To Peaceful Transitions (where possible)!

“Gene Sharp Peace Theorizing and the Arab Spring: Tool for Societal Transformation…or the Road to Nowhere?” with Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince. KGNU 1390 AM, 88.5 FM – Hemispheres, Middle East Dialogues. Tuesday, December 24, 2019. 6 pm Mountain Time.

Well friends – Kazerooni and Prince, with Jim Nelson hosting, are back. We missed two programs because of two Colorado fall snowstorms which prevented Jim and I from getting to the studio. But this one is “a go” and has already been pre-taped and will air at the usual time and slot on your dial or streaming station.

Over the next two programs we are going to analyze and de-construct the theories of peaceful activism articulated by Gene Sharp, who over the course of his life became nothing short of a guru for peaceful non-violent social change, and one highly respected worldwide. We will look at both his historical institutional connections as well as a number of a case studies where his thinking was transformed into action.

Ours is a critical analysis of his work. For details, tune in.
