My first-ever bit on Huffington Post just went up—”Who Carries the Burden of Peace?” It’s an attempt to talk about the place of nonviolence talk in the Gaza conflict and, ultimately, to challenge those in positions of power to push harder for peaceful solutions. Loyal readers will recognize parts of my recent essay, Can Nonviolence Govern? on which the Gaza piece is based.
This whole idea of writing political op-eds doesn’t totally sit well with me. I’d much rather be a spinner of pretentious reflection and ambiguity than an über-wonk. As always, I’m eager for reactions and critique, so bring it on.
