The American Peace Movement
Forward and Backward from the '60's
Hippy is an establishment labelfor a profound, invisible, underground, evolutionary
process. For every visible hippy, barefoot, beflowered, beaded, there are a thousand invisible members of the turned-on underground. Persons whose lives are tuned in to their inner vision, who are dropping out of the TV comedy of American Life.

The Non-Violence Web
"In trying to understand the philosophy of nonviolence, it is important to keep in mind there is no living, vital philosphy which does not have "holes" in it. Nonviolence does not answer all questions. It is filled with contradictions. Nonviolence is many things, but if it is not a search for truth - a search that is never ended - it will fail."

That which you have been given is but a fleeting comfort of this life. Better and more enduring is that which Allah has for those who believe and put their trust in Him; who avoid gross sins and indecencies and,
when angered, are willing to forgive; who obey their Lord, attend to their prayers, and conduct their affairs by mutual consent; who bestow in alms a part of that which We have given them and, when oppressed,
seek to redress their wrongs.
[Al-Qur'an, Sura: 42 (Ash-Shura), Ayat: 36-39]
