Renouncing War World-wide Gathering Great Geniuses
January 6, 2006
Geniuses of diverse talents with persistent work for human rights are working to set loose tens of millions of people throughout the world to make it ever more difficult and soon impossible to wage war any where on the planet.
Howard Zinn in a recent ZNet Commentary gave notice that Gino Strada, Paul Farmer, Kurt Vonnegut, Nadine Gordimer, Eduardo Galeano are some of the people working on these world-wide gatherings to renounce war. Their full intention is to make world-wide renunciation of war so popular that halting existing wars and not starting any more wars is politically irresistible.
Peaceful non-violent ways can be found to halt and avoid wars especially when the renunciation of war is global and universally unacceptable to tens of millions of people.
The background, experience, depth of commitment, and ongoing accomplishments of the people initiating this world-wide renunciation of war is remarkable.
Here is a recent response to this article from Joseph Eger and more about the symphonyun.org website:
I'm hardly a genius but do have enormous respect for those you've gathered together and would like to add my name and energies.
My recent book is "EINSTEIN'S VIOLIN: A Conductor's Notes on Music, Physics and Social Change" (Penguin Group of publishers) and the message in the book paralleles those of your list, especially Howard Zinn whom I've respected for many years. My 2005 nationwide tour of schools, universities and bookstores led me to believe that there is a great yearning, even in unexpected places, for our message.
