More on Yourofsky and violence

I think I may have posted this link in the comments in my previous Gary Y post, but it deserves to be showcased here.  It is eloquent and beautiful and thought-provoking and needs to be shared widely.

The most poignant words for me were “pacifism is activism without the ego”.  Beautiful.  And watch the videos–who would you rather listen to:  Angry Gary Y or Thich Nhat Hanh?  People who are at peace with themselves draw others to them.  Gary Y needs to learn to stop being an immature man-child and embrace PEACE.

If you support Gary Y, I encourage you to read the linked article in its entirety–don’t give in to anger and be petulant.  The author is more than fair toward Gary but makes just points about his behaviour.
