Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Formulas for ending war are as old as war itself; yet war continues. What is the missing realization, the breakthrough that will lay to rest, once and for all, humanity's war-mongering impulse? Perhaps it is the awareness of our own fascination with war, and the creation of "a better game"--some exciting endeavor that is decidedly more benign. So says Bob Fuller, co-founder of the Mo Tzu Project, a small band of private citizens who, like their namesake, a fifth-century B.C. Chinese philosopher, travel to sites of political strife (Poland, Northern Ireland, Kenya, Israel/Lebanon) and attempt, as individuals, to mediate disputes. If you have longed for a day when the end of war is conceivable--and who hasn't?--you owe it to yourself to listen to this conversation. (hosted by Michael Toms)
Robert Fuller, Ph.D. is a physicist and former president of Oberlin College. He has consulted with Indira Gandhi, met with Jimmy Carter regarding the President's Commission on World Hunger, and worked to defuse the Cold War in Russia when it was known as the USSR. As Fuller reflected on his career he realized that he had been, at different times in his life, a somebody and a nobody. His periodic sojourns into “Nobodyland” led him to identify rankism - the abuse of the power inherent in rank - and ultimately to write the book Somebodies and Nobodies: Overcoming the Abuse of Rank. He has become a recognized leader of the dignity movement to overcome rankism and keynoted a Dignity for All conference hosted by the President of Bangladesh. His many other accomplishments include co-authoring the text book Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics.
