This year (2016) marks the 50th anniversary of the BLACK PANTHER PARTY and MD brings in special guest, LARRY PINKNEY an ORIGINAL BLACK PANTHER to discuss how the PANTHERS are viewed in today's society. Did the BLACK PANTHERS start out as community organization that eventually got away from their principles? How did the PANTHERS feel about MARTIN LUTHER KING'S approach of NON-VIOLENCE? Did the FBI's COINTELPRO infiltrate to bring down the Party or did their own in fighting between HUEY P. NEWTON & ELRIDGE CLEAVER play the biggest role in the demise of the party? At the top of the 2nd Hour, for the MONEY & POWER 15, we ask how did the PANTHERS finance their BREAKFAST PROGRAM and provide 20K meals weekly for the youth, as well as the sickle cell testing for the community?

The beginning of Black History Month has been already crowded with new entries in our long history of violence and inequality. Yet even while we mourn, honoring the grief and rage of the recent murder of Tyre Nichols, officials in power have been quick to remind everyone that protests must be “peaceful and nonviolent” and that there is a “right way” to protest. However, people's anger and grief at injustice is not the root problem. What is “out of hand” is a system that depends on police brutality and systemic racism. And the best way to prevent violent protests is to create a just, equitable, compassionate society.

Eva is the operations lead for the startup non-profit Pax Fauna. Pax Fauna exists to design a more effective social movement for animal freedom in the U.S. Eva has been organizing in the animal freedom movement since 2015 when she started working with Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) in Chicago, where she focused on building community, writing protest music, and compiling the movements' songs into an online songbook used by advocates around the world. She started working full time as DxE's legal coordinator in 2018, managing the organization's many legal cases, organizing trainings, and orchestrating large artistic demonstrations. Building on a background in Kingian nonviolence, Eva is a dedicated student of #nonviolentcommunication and is committed to bringing NVC's repertoire of creative problem-solving tools to the work of building a better culture in the animal movement. In Sentientist Conversations we talk about the two most important questions: “what's real?” & “who matters?” Sentientism is "evidence, reason & compassion for all sentient beings." The video of our conversation is here on YouTube. We discuss: 00:00 Welcome 01:39 Eva's Intro 02:48 What's Real? - "Growing up I definitely loved the supernatural... ghosts... god... mystical things" - Raised #episcopalian, baptised, church "I remember really enjoying that" - Considering confirmation but "starting to feel a little bit sceptical" - 5th grade: Debating people online about religion - "A sudden realisation... I don't actually believe all of this" - Looking for purpose - Identifying as an #atheist & focusing on the harms of religion (unaccepting, destructive, family rejections) - "I still don't believe in anything that can't be falsified" - "I'm really connected to the needs that can be met by religion..." working in an end of life hospice - "My own spirituality... characterised by #nonviolence" a Kingian perspective, nonviolent communication - Meeting the needs (community, morality)... without the supernatural - Valuing acceptance & care for others led to hostility vs. some religious ethics - #yoga & #meditation then finding "a more secular form of meditation" - Using supernaturalism as a metaphor - Naturalistic "spirituality"... "a felt sense of purpose" 13:20 What Matters? - Non-violence: Getting away from black & white "right and wrong" thinking to "thinking about needs" - Finding creative alternatives to meeting needs without violence - Needs & strategies to meet them - More fundamental needs: safety, sustenance, freedom from suffering - #maslow 's hierarchy, Scott Barry Kaufman's sailboat @ThePsychologyPodcast - Protective use of force.

Sulaiman Khatib grew up in a small Palestinian village, on the outskirts of Jerusalem.  At the age of 14, he and his friend received long jail sentences for stabbing and injuring two Israeli soldiers. In the jail library he studied the history of the Jewish people, and began to understand that there were equally compelling narratives to both sides. A reconstructed perspective of non-violence, further impacted  by hunger strikes in jail,  seeded his future dedication to peace and reconciliation work. In 2005 he cofounded the Combatants for Peace, an organization created by Palestinian and Israeli former fighters and victims of violence. Combatants for Peace is modeled on humanistic values of empathy, forgiveness and mutual respect for a future of peace on the sacred homeland that both Palestinians and Israelis love, fighting not each other - but the common enemy of hatred and fear. Nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize, his transformative journey and visionary optimism is rooted in a deep love of the land, ancient wisdom, and spirituality.

In Episode 158 of the CounterVortex podcast, Bill Weinberg notes that the Russian Socialist Movement has issued a call for solidarity actions with anti‑war activists in Russia on Jan. 19. This is the date when left activists Stanislav Markelov and Anastasia Baburova were gunned down by far-right militants in Moscow in 2009. Today, the Vladimir Putin regime is persecuting activists such as Alexandra Skochilenko—who faces a long prison term for producing public art on an anti-war theme. Instead of responding to this call for solidarity, the ANSWER Coalition and other exponents of the "tankie" pseudo-left have called a rally against aid to Ukraine, and implicitly in support of Putin and his war aims, for Jan. 14 in locations such as New York's Times Square—perversely, in the name of Martin Luther King. The Ukraine Socialist Solidarity Campaign repudiates this pseudo-anti-war rally, urging: "No exploitation of Dr. MLK Jr. to support war criminal Putin!" Debunking the Russian propaganda that portrays Putin's aggression as a defensive move against NATO encroachment, Weinberg demonstrates that the principles propounded by Dr. King in his courageous dissent from LBJ's criminal war in Vietnam now mandate that we direct our protests at Vladimir Putin. Speeches and essays discussed: "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the Silence" by MLK, 1967; "The Social Organization of Nonviolence" by MLK, 1959; "My Pilgrimage to Nonviolence" by MLK, 1958; "The Doctrine of the Sword," by MK Gandhi, 1920; "Looking Back on the Spanish War" by George Orwell, 1942; "I'm a Ukrainian Socialist.

Hung-Yok Ip's Grassroots Activism of Ancient China: Mohism and Nonviolence ( Lexington Books, 2022) examines Mohism as a movement in early China, focusing on the Mohists' pursuit of power. Fashioning themselves as grassroots activists, the Mohists hoped to impact the elite by gaining entry in its community and influencing it from within. To create a less violent world, they deployed strategies of persuasion and negotiation but did not discard counterviolence in their dealings with the ruling class. In executing their activism, the Mohists produced knowledge that allowed them to hone their nonviolent strategies as well as to mount armed resistance to aggression. In addition, the Mohists paid significant attention to the issue of personhood, constructing a self-cultivation tradition unsparing in its demands for overcoming human conditions that would impede their performance as activists. This book situates Mohism in the history of nonviolent activism, and in that of negotiation and conflict resolution. Jessica Zu is an Assistant Professor in the School of Religion at USC Dornsife.

Hung-Yok Ip's Grassroots Activism of Ancient China: Mohism and Nonviolence ( Lexington Books, 2022) examines Mohism as a movement in early China, focusing on the Mohists' pursuit of power. Fashioning themselves as grassroots activists, the Mohists hoped to impact the elite by gaining entry in its community and influencing it from within. To create a less violent world, they deployed strategies of persuasion and negotiation but did not discard counterviolence in their dealings with the ruling class. In executing their activism, the Mohists produced knowledge that allowed them to hone their nonviolent strategies as well as to mount armed resistance to aggression. In addition, the Mohists paid significant attention to the issue of personhood, constructing a self-cultivation tradition unsparing in its demands for overcoming human conditions that would impede their performance as activists. This book situates Mohism in the history of nonviolent activism, and in that of negotiation and conflict resolution. Jessica Zu is an Assistant Professor in the School of Religion at USC Dornsife.

 The Non-violence or Ahimsa was first introduced from the Hindu-Religion.Ahimsa or non-violence was created for the Braman (Priest) and Sannyasins (Monks) to live a peaceful life in a remote resort. That makes sense.Afterward, Buddhism, Jainism, and Christians had the fatal idea to integrate Ahimsa for everybody in their Religion… And this was one of the biggest mistakes that Religions have ever done!! If we look at the history of India and Tibet:In the 3rd Century B. C “Ashoka The Great” made Buddhism the state Religion of India. In the sixth century A. C., the Huns invaded India and destroyed  Buddhist monasteries. Afterward, the Muslims in the 12th century overtook India… The very downfall for India was Buddhism.What happens to Tibet? The same, conquered and destroyed from China… Do we need more evidence?If somebody or a country stick to Ahimsa, they rather more invite offenders or an invasion… The other Buddhist countries didn't practice Ahimsa and could defend themselves.Even so, the Buddhists are not vegetarian, and that is a contradiction to Ahimsa. The Christian countries made and make wars after wars and killed so many people even in the name of their Christian God that it is hard to believe in their scriptures (Bible). I can't believe in any scriptures when the rules are broken from the Religions Leaders!The worst was the witch-hunt that torched millions of innocent women in the name of the Christian God! If we compare both Religions with the Hindu scripture, we must admit that the Hindu Religion is well designed.Killing or harming of people are not allowed for the Priests (Brahman) and Monks (Sannyasin). Threatening without fighting is allowed to defend themselves. The Warriors (Kashitras) should be the ruler, Civil servants, and soldiers of the country.For the Hindus, it is impossible that a Brahman should rule the country. Because a Brahman has to be peacefully when their country is attacked. For Instance, the Dalai Lama or any Bishop would be inadequate to rule a country… Because their Darma is to be peacefully in any situation and this will never work out for any country. We can also learn from the Hindu scripture that punishment is necessary as it is to live a high morality as the leader. When the leader is immoral the subordinates will become unethical over time.We need punishment to teach people to become better… The Hindu system recommends the punishment should go in steps harder when the delinquent doesn't obey…For instance, your kid is beating up your other siblings.1.) In a friendly voice, you explain that this is not good and that he should not attack other kids.2.) In an unfriendly voice, you remind him what you have said before.3.) In an angry voice, you repeat what you said.4.) You threaten your kid that he will not get any pocket money if he continues.5.) You threaten your kid to hit him when he is doing it one time again.6.) You hit your nasty child…Non-violence (ahimsa) would not work out to educate a nasty child/delinquent…   My Video: Why does non-violence not work? https://youtu.be/lZbCiKk17iYMy Audio: https://divinesuccess.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/Podcast.B/Why-does-non-violence-not-work.mp3

Non-violence rejects the use of physical violence to achieve social and political change. Instead, it uses civil resistance as an alternative to armed struggle.  The philosophy of non-violence matters now more than ever as we try to make sense of what's happening in countries with ongoing civil unrest. It can be a beacon of hope that will guide us to better and more peaceful times.  Take inspiration from these famous peaceful protests and pivotal leaders in the non-violence movement.

This week, Nonviolence Radio brings together four voices, each one exploring a different aspect of nonviolence. We hear from religious scholar, activist and writer, Francesca Po; advisor to the Secretary General of Pax Christi International, Marie Dennis; pastor at Clackamas United Church of Christ, Adam Erickson; and senior lecturer in the Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies Program at DePaul University, Ken Butigan. Their varied interests help us to trace the deep roots of nonviolence in our history; to understand how contemporary, post-New Age ‘Self Religion' breeds curiosity and tolerance; to see the ways the Catholic Church is becoming (again) a source of and support for nonviolence education  and finally, to recognize that the ‘scapegoat mechanism' rests on a misunderstanding of scripture and can be fruitfully replaced with an empowering model of nonviolent action.These four speakers, given their distinct perspectives, enlarge and enrich our understanding of nonviolence and reveal it to be a dynamic and powerful force, one with a long past and an increasingly mighty present.

Morgan continued today with the 3rd mark of the early church, non-violence.  Edwin Stanton was an enemy of Abe Lincoln.  He took every opportunity to embarrass and humiliate Mr. Lincoln.  When President Lincoln was elected, he selected Edwin Stanton as his Sec of War.  Many advisors thought this was foolish and tried to convince Pres. Lincoln to select someone else.  President Lincoln's response was "He is the best man for the job."  Pres Lincoln could have retaliated.  He had the power to destroy Edwin Stanton, but instead he placed him in a position of power.  He rose above hate.  When Pres Lincoln was killed, Edwin stated "He was one of hte greatest that ever lived."  He chose redemptive love.   In today's world, hitting back is expected and celebrated  We take turns takign shots at each other.  We are socialized by retaliation and revenge.  We are socialized that violence is the best solution.   Jesus is calling us to be counter-cultural.   We reviewed all the scriptures basically stating an "eye for an eye."  Lev 24:17-22, Exodus 12: 23-24, Deut. 19: 21.   These were created for the courts of law for Justice.  They were also created to prevent revenge by the victim because our natural response has always been retaliation.   Jesus said these laws are for the courts but not my disciples.   "An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."  Ghandi Matthew 5: 38-48....Jesus tells us to take a different path.  Vs 39 talks about turning the other cheek.  Backhanded slaps were to humiliate and shame, yet we are to turn and allow the other side to be hit.   Vs 40 we are told if someone takes your shirt to give your coat as well.  This also shows us to not be wrapped up in possessions.   Vs 41 states if we are told to go a mile, then go 2.  Ethnic Jews oppressed by the Roman empire often had to carry a pack for a mile.  Jesus said to carry it for 2 miles.   All 3 of these are humiliating and offensive.  How are we to respond?   Romans 14:21.  We are to bless those who persecute us and live in harmony with one another.  We are not to repay evil with evil.  "I will repay" says the Lord.   3 things we can do:   #1:  Lay down your rights.  America is all about "our rights."  Our primary allegience is not to the USA, it's to Jesus.   We are to be a peple willign to turn the other cheek for Jesus.  Gal 5: 13-15 #2:  Respond in a surprisingly creative and generous way.  This takes spiritual maturity.  Do not just fight or flight.  Respond courageously with love.   Morgan used Rosa Parks as an example.  She didn't stand down.  She had dignity and made a decision to respond with creative resistance.  When we retaliate, we demenish our humanity in the process.  Vs 43 commands us to love our enemy.  It is seen as patriotic to hate your enemy.  If you only love those like you, you are no better than anyone else.  Christians are to be known by their love.  We are to pray for those who have wronged us.   Vs 45:  God doesn't just care for you.  He died for all of us....the abused, the abuser, the lunched, the lynch mob, the oppressed, the oppressor, etc.   We have all hurt people.  God's love is for everyone.   Practical take-aways to cultivate a life of non-violence:   Spend time in prayer and silence.  Who has wronged you?  Pray for them. Be mindful of your narrative intake and how it is impacting your thoughts and actions.   Know yourself.   Non-violence is not about effectiveness, it's about faithfulness.  We can't advance God's kingdom through the sword.    https://redeemerwichita.church/

It's often said that religion is a cause of war – but can it also be a cause of peace?  --- “Part of what makes religion such a powerful motivator in support for peace, is also what makes it a powerful motivator in support for violence.”  An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.   This principle of retaliation, that a person who has injured another should be penalized in a similar way, and to a similar degree, forms the basis for many codes of justice around the world. But Jesus had a radically different approach.   Turn the other cheek, and go the extra mile.   In this episode of Life & Faith, we dive into the world of peace building with Dr Maria J Stephan and Susan Hayward from the US Institute of Peace.
