War No More: The Case for Abolition

Video of Debate: "Is War Necessary?"

I finally got a video of the debate I did on whether war is ever necessary.

To edit it or put it on Youtube I need somebody who has a program called Tegrity to upload the video to Youtube from which I can download it. Please let me know if you can do that.

In the meantime, you can watch the video here. To get to the start of the debate, you have to jump ahead about 12 minutes by sliding or clicking at the bottom of the video. To get to my initial remarks, you have to jump ahead about 36 minutes.

Enjoy.

Let me know what you think.

Hold onto Your Hats

ColdType Magazine& The Reader(Scroll page for issues - latest at top)

Issue 79

HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS: Our cover story is a whimsical photo essay of barber shops in Johannesburg, South Africa, by Alon Skuy. We’ve also got two long book excerpts: the first – from James A. Mitchell’s The Walrus and the Elephants – offers a glimpse of John Lennon’s life as Hippy Messiah after his arrival in New York City in 1970; the second comes from David Swanson’s finely-reasoned War No More. We’ve also got conflicting opinions on whether Israel is or is not an Apartheid State from Uri Avneri and Jonathan Cook; while Chris Hedges wants to get the real class war started, David Edwards looks at the treatment of Glenn Greenwald by the British media, John Pilger writes about the new ‘Great Game’, and David Cromwell is intrigued by reaction to British comedian Russell Brand’s call for revolution. Plus much more.BEING THERE: Our second offering, BEING THERE – 40-pages of street photography by ColdType editor Tony Sutton - shows that, despite what you may think, not all Canadians are boring.
