Audio: 10 Ways We Pretend War Is Not a Crime and How to Change Them

Recorded by Dale Lehman / WZRD and posted at Radio4All (listen here). Or listen below.

This is a keynote talk by David Swanson for the West Suburban Faith-Based Peace Coalition at their Peace Essay Contest Awards Presentation on August 27, 2019, the 91st Anniversary of the Kellogg-Briand Pact.

It was Swanson’s 2011 book, “When the World Outlawed War”, an inspiring but forgotten story from the 1920s of how people created a treaty to ban all war — a treaty still on the books but ignored, given to Frank Goetz, the Coalition’s just past President and Peace Essay Contest coordinator, by peace activist Kathy Kelly, that inspired him to establish the Peace Essay Contest, now in its 7th year.
