“Nuclear Weapons: Updates on the Crisis and Opportunities”
December 19, 2019 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm PST
An event every week that begins at 9:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 26, 2019
The December 2019 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series (cable channel 22 in Thurston County — and also watchable anytime through Glen Anderson’s blog (www.parallaxperspectives.org) provides information about nuclear weapons that most people do not know.
When the Cold War ended 30 years ago, tensions eased, but the danger of nuclear war has increased again recently, so this hour brings you up to date on the currently escalating dangers – and also some new opportunities for disarmament.
Three knowledgeable guests – Bob Delastrada, Joanne Dufour and Mark Fleming – bring us up to date with information, insights and opportunities that you will find interesting and exciting. We report on some exciting new efforts to restrain and reduce nuclear weapons – and some efforts to abolish them altogether. All three guests and the host are active members of the Olympia Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.
We highlight some of the hard realities from the Cold War (policies such as Mutually Assured Destruction and First-Strike, dangers of “command and control,” accidents that nearly caused horrible devastation, etc.) and attempts to reduce the dangers (including the growth of the disarmament movement, the Freeze Campaign, etc.).
We also share insights into the fear-mongering and the government’s attempt to make people feel powerless and subservient to the nuclear Establishment.
After the Cold War ended, some tensions reduced, but nuclear weapons persisted with recklessness but less public awareness. Now Trump has been trashing treaties and provoking a new nuclear arms race that could destroy the world.
All of this serves the military-industrial-political complex. But the disarmament movement now is growing again and organizing for new opportunities to reduce and actually abolish nuclear weapons worldwide. We explore some of the new opportunities at the global, national and local levels.
Our December 2019 TV program covers the first half of this material, and the same guests will cover the second half in our February 2020 program.
We prepared more information than we could squeeze into the TV interviews, so I encourage you to visit my blog, www.parallaxperspectives.org, so you can not only watch this video but also read my article thoroughly summarizing what we said during this interview. The article also includes much additional information beyond what we had time to say on TV. See below.
