The Shadow of Peace: Why Violence Can’t (and Shouldn’t) Disappear

Summer of Peace 2014 > Community Peacebuilding > Nonviolence
Broadcast on August 19, 2014
With Tim Kelley

When well-meaning peace activists act from the intention to stamp out violence, they unconsciously create a stable system in which peace is not possible.  Declaring war and violence to be “bad” and seeking to stop them reinforces the current paradigm, rather than creating a new one.  How will the peaceful society of the future operate, if getting rid of violence completely isn’t an option?  Join global change agent Tim Kelley as he reveals the dark side of the peace movement and shows you how to create a peaceful psyche, a peaceful life, and a peaceful world.
