Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Michael Knox about how to end U.S. wars by honoring Americans who work for peace.
The United States is built on a culture of war. We are used to glorifying the soldiers who fight and kill, the weapons that devastate, the presidents that recklessly endanger, and the symbols of patriotism and chest-thumping that accompany declarations of American greatness. Speaking out against war has earned accusations of being anti-patriotic, naive, and idealistic. But what if we could change our culture from one that upholds war to one that upholds peace?
Michael Knox, PhD, Psychologist and Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at the University of South Florida. He is also the founder of the US Peace Memorial Foundation and the author of ENDING U.S. WARS by Honoring Americans Who Work for Peace.
