PETER BERGEL – The Occupy movement has opened space for a national â€“ even international â€“ dialogue on the kind of world we want to live in. It has empowered many citizens to find the audacity and courage to think outside the box â€“ to consider sweeping solutions that were off the table a few short weeks ago.
GEORGE LAKEY – I am happy to announce that a four-year project is now ready for release to you: 430 cases (and growing) of campaigns from around the world that used nonviolent direct action.
TODD DIEHL – As September 11, 2001 reaches its 10th anniversary, I would like to propose an alternative: Love Your Enemy. We have all witnessed the actions of a nation focused on hate and revenge. Now it is time to move our hearts and turn our focus to actions based on love, reconciliation, and healing. As Martin Luther King, Jr, said, â€œIt is love that will save our civilization; love even for our enemies.â€
