"War never serves peace" - Eugen Drewermann

1 post / 0 new

"War never serves peace just as lies never serve truth and cats are not dogs."

"We wage war against the nature that we exploit and against the starving whom we drive into misery. As soon as one says war, we fall back thousands of years to the Stone Age and lose the option for the future."

"Pacifism is not somethng that is only a trend of the times. Pacifism is a conviction of high moral quality and holds up against the propaganda lies of the electronic media and print media."

Should public radio program in the public interest?

NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but they're barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest.

Only one month ago, a national New York Times/CBS News poll found that half of all Americans think that global warming is already having a serious impact. Sixty percent of those surveyed even said that protecting our environment should be a priority “even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”
