About Me My passions are stoked by the inequality and injustice that I witness in the world. My coping strategy is nonviolence. Nonviolence has two parts, non-cooperation but also constructive program (as Gandhi called it). Much of my time is spent training others in the skills needed for non-cooperation, but at the same time I'm engaged in sustainability issues which I see as the future direction for feeding and housing the people of the world.
