Colman McCarthy: Founder, Center for Teaching Peace
Steven Scully: Adjunct Professor, University of Denver
Nathaniel Mills: Teacher
Chris Malone: Professor, Pace University, Political Science

Students from the University of Denver and Pace University participated by broadband feed in a distance learning class.

Colman McCarthy joined the class for a discussion of war, violence, and peace. He talked about how he teaches peace. Topics included mediation, conflict resolution, the philosophy of pacifism, and techniques of nonviolence. He also talked about countries that the U.S. has attacked in the past 20 years. He answered students questions.

This course is a partnership between C-SPAN, The Cable Center and the University of Denver. The copyright for this program is held by The Cable Center.

Colman McCarthy is Vegan and Anti-Choice But he said some interesting things about non-violence. Then I went to do my laundry and read an article about Columbus and the genocide of the peaceful Taino. Yes, non-violence has worked in some cases, but if your apponent doesn't think you are really human you'll just die.

The Center for Teaching Peace doesn't appear to have a web site, which does not bode well for it.

I caught this story on NPR and I want to get notes on it before I lose it.
