Episode Description: In this talk, Father John Dear, a Catholic priest and long-time nonviolence and peace activist, echoes the words of Martin Luther King Jr.: “It’s either non-violence or non-existence.” Reflecting on the imminent threats our planet now faces, Dear says that the only hope is, “a global, grassroots, bottom-up, people-powered movement of active, provocative nonviolence–the likes of which the world has never seen before.” He invites us to, “rise to the occasion,” and urges that we, “become our best selves, like Dr. King did. Be the people who are going to do what we can to stop non-existence. To chose and help humanity chose active nonviolence.”
