on my way to Yangon, but would like to send result of my years of study of Gandhi and King - a letter to my mentor Noam Chomsky of MIT:
Please comment: until March I am your appreciative jay janson
WHY King Had to be Silenced and Not My Prof. Noam or Any Chomsky Students
Dear Prof. Noam,
watching videos of my dear professor's lectures.
Since my enlightenment, what i notice even more than the erudition and charming and warm presentation is a firm stamp of amiable helplessness, ‘because that’s the way things are’ acclimated acceptance and a sense of appreciation for being knowledgeable about the crimes against humanitythat engulfs others more than us.
No fury or determination aroused, and Prof. Noam's scientific presentation and his 'What can one expect but these causes effected and these effects caused,' Buddha demeanor seems to project the idea that‘they’ have usperiod.
King was too dangerous to let stay alive and talking, because he, in wrathful anger ,accused rightfullyUS, WEas beinghorribly responsiblefor the crimes against humanity in the name of maintaining the predatory investments of our wealthy. And he included himself, anguishing over his previous silence that he called "betrayal."
Prof. Chomsky's educating thrust against aTHEYandTHEM, of a nicely delineated corporate conspiracy has been no threat toTHEM.
King's focused his anti-imperialism on OUR mass-murdering of millions and OUR plundering the vulnerable for OUR own blind benefit and like any good preacher cried out for US We to stop doing this.
Prof. Noam's excellent exposing corporations and government.
But King dismissed the government as "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world" and SPOKE toUS WEbeing responsible for being fully capable of making these crimes against humanity unacceptable and inoperable thru non participation non support and conscientious objection. Once King was silenced, almost all Americans went back to pointing his or her finger away from themselves.
We come away from rereading Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break Silence admonished, ashamed, angry with ourselves and prone toDOsomething.
I come away from my teacher's lecture, beautifully informed, disheartened, frustrated as powerless to stop whatTHEYare doing toUS, but with a compensating feeling of knowing just how we are being played.
Now we have MP of UK Parliament George Galloway, Ex Prime Minister Mohamad Mahathir in Malaysia, Archbishop Desmond Tutu in South Africa and a growing number of writers and prominent people in Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Mexico and other Latin American nations, President Ahmadinejad in Iran, and Julian Assange openly calling for prosecution of US crimes against humanity.
Antiwar movement goes on exposing, clarifying, complaining and protesting each new US crime against humanity as innocents, steadfastly avoiding calling for the investigation and prosecution of US crimes against humanity with in depth indictments.
No intention to save one single life that will be taken in Africa or Middle East. ‘the US Antiwar movement has no clothes.’
I saw the video of your learned lecture on YouTube yesterday on 'Diversity and Democracy in India.' The very next day, it is a great surprise to find your comment here. I feel myself very fortunate to have in reach of the company of such a learned scholar who happens to be interested in Gandhian Studies. To open up to you about my longing, I would like to share my Gandhian experiences, if you will be kind enough to accept my friend's request.
Hello jovita is my name i was moved to write you for a heart2heart discussion when i came across your page.so If u dont mind,write me directly with this mail ID, (email@example.com)i will send u my photo
I have just now read your message to me dated from February. I joined the Gandhi-King community in late January and promptly went back to my busy schedule and did not return heer until yesterday. It is great to meet you, Dr. Yadav. I'm in awe of your level of Gandhian scholarship. Last night I read your posting on Gandhi and singing. I will now go back and read them all.
It is wonderful to connect across continents. In my work I strive to connect Kingian Nonviolence derived from the lifework of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to the arts. To do this I recently founded Public Art Connect with a mission centered on nonviolence consciousness. I am trained in Kingian nonviolence by Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr. King of course was greatly influenced by Gandhi and so Gandhi is also very important for this work. How can I learn more about your work? Please suggest specific links, especially as they may connect to my work here in New Mexico in the Southwest United States.
Thank you for your message, Dr. Yadav. I am a documentary filmmaker with an interest in Gandhian nonviolence. I am working with the Metta Center for Nonviolent Education on a documentary film about the subject. You can find information about Metta here: http://www.mettacenter.org/ I look forward to learning more about your work. Peace.
Thank you for the message. I would send you an important messge and I would ask you for the publicity.
