All Articles

Each of the following articles essentially does one or more of four things.

It provides a brief explanation of violent or otherwise dysfunctional human behaviour in a particular context – such as why someone is a perpetrator of violence, racist or Islamophobic, or why the global elite is insane – and explains appropriate healing and other nonviolent responses.

It explains why someone has become emotionally damaged – such as what caused a soldier to suffer Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – or why someone acquired what is sometimes labeled (not very usefully) a mental health disorder – such as depression or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) – and what can be done to restore full emotional health.

It explains why a widely accepted political, economic or social institution – such as school and the legal system – is violent and causes enormous emotional and other damage, and what we can do instead.

Or it explains why a particular profession – such as psychiatry, the medical industry and policing – is extraordinarily violent and what can be done to eliminate them in favour of superior (and nonviolent) alternatives.
