_ Greece — Home-state founding Planetary “Marathon” Olympic Game

_ 2016 Nonkilling, Nonviolence, & Civil Disobedience Course Outline or Syllabi Online

 _ Greece — Home-state founding Planetary “Marathon” Olympic Games

 In Greece — the first torch-bearing nation-state hosting the now planetary Olympic Games — The most proactive Greek nonviolence groups have concerned the right to refuse to kill; Such as in I Refuse “conscientious objector” publications & Greek feminist groups tirelessly questioning NATO‒Greece.  A leading Greek Olympian “Gandhian” & Parliament Member–MP – Grigoris Lambrakis, MD, inaugurated local & global torch-bearing peace “marathon” dissent — Supporting demilitarization, the UN, and abolition of militarized NATO & Warsaw Pacts through Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament–CND & Non-Aligned Movement‒NAM networks.  Lambrakis & Mikis Theodorakis started what would become an annual Peace “Marathon” from Marathonas to Athena, Greece — Immune as a Piraeus–MP from police beat-downs & lock-ups, he had to run & walk that first April 1963 marathon’s last few miles alone to finish it.  After a subsequent Lambrakis’ Thessaloniki peace marathon advocacy speech, Thessaloniki police adjoining the northern NATO‒Greece epicenter tortured & killed Lambrakis.  By the following April, in 1964, a half million people gathered to commemorate Lambrakis in the Marathonas Marathon.  Fundamental to the world’s Summer Olympics, annual Marathonas & Athens Classic “Marathons” have since memorialized Lambrakis.  Greek students have continued to struggle against compulsory NATO‒Greece prison or conscription laws.  In 1973, e.g., a NATO-oriented 1347/73 regime decree authorized brutal conscriptive impressment of “antinational” male students.  Initially, Athens Polytechnic University–Polytechnion science & technology students nonviolently withstood the militarized police; Irrespective of their classroom access to explosive laboratory chemicals.  At the outset, a NATO - Greece “Colonels” dictatorial regime had to return recently-conscripted, shaved, & brushcut students back to the Polytechnion campus; And yet, in November 1973, NATO–Greek “Colonels” ravaged the Polytechnion campus with guns & tanks — Killing scores, wounding hundreds, & arresting 7,000.  The “Colonels” lapsed shortly after. For related Olympic issues carried-on through a torch-bearing peace “marathon” generating a ground-breaking Olympic Truce, historically, please see, e.g., https://www.olympic.org/olympic-truce; Stefan Hollstein, Olympic Interpreting: A Guide to the Olympic Movement for Conference Interpreters (Maîtrise: Univ.

By-and-large NATO “Med” – Crete–Chania-Souda Bay–Greece & Rota–Spain – bases have vitally-projected serialized U.S. Oil gulf wars — Basing nuclearized submarines & aircraft carriers for extended surveillance & even Guantánamo-style torture rendition; Synchronized by a Larissa, Greece, EU Operations Headquarters–OHQ & a trans-corporate Thessaloniki oil war “nerve” epicenter base.  Weathering such hegemonic oil-war conflict, war resisters in 1940s-1980s NATO-Greece & Spain faced grim imprisonment decades for refusing to kill for the state.  One 1970s Athens Quaker, e.g., coped with over two decades in-jail or exile as choices; Dismal choices like those also in Turkey or Israel.  After 2000, digitally-forged nonviolence campaigns began reversing war resisters’ sentence times from “decades” down to “years” in-jail.  Though the hyper-militarized NATO “Med” bases would sequentially-project global oil wars across states like an Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, & IsraelPalestine; All logistically-coded in U.S. SE Asia war-era agendas.  Puerto Rico & NATO–“Med” bases would exhude uncontrolled carcinogenic “superfund”-level pollution — Endlessly-challenged across the Mediterranean by eco-nonviolence from Rota, Seville, Thessaloniki & Chania-Souda Bay.  Author lived & worked in Greece, Spain, & Turkey various times, for months at a time, in the mid-late 1970s; Spending a day, e.g., with the girlfriend of the Quaker war resister in Athens and also with an elderly Catalan editor & publisher in Barcelona Visiting the Montjuich (Montjuïc) wall where Franco-NATOSpain firing squads in the 1930s & 1940s executed that Catalan editor’s friends & colleagues en masse, as top leaders of a democratically-elected Azaña regime.  Mass execution estimates then stretched into million or so total killed in Spain.  He managed to impede Catalan executions by personally-interceding directly with the Queen of the Netherlands.  His son drove the Author through mountains above Barcelona to the Montserrat Monastery refuge, a cultural Catalan sanctuary which Franco-NATOSpain partisan paramilitary executions failed to overpower.  See “Montserrat Monastery,” http://www.barcelona.de/en/barcelona-excursions-monastery-montserrat.html; and “Manuel Azaña y Díaz, President of Spain,” http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/46714/Manuel-Azana-y-Diaz;Shut down NATO - A WRI Campaign against NATO,” http://www.wri-irg.org/campaigns/shutdown-nato; “Country Report and Updates: Greece,” http://www.wri-irg.org/programmes/world_survey/country_report/en/Greece; “Country Report and Updates: Spain,” http://www.wri-irg.org/programmes/world_survey/country_report/en/Spain; & “Country Report and Updates: Turkey,” http://www.wri-irg.org/programmes/world_survey/country_report/en/Turkey.  In Google Search Translate, one can input, e.g. Greece + μη-βία (nonviolence) + thessaloniki + νατο (NATO) + “κόλπος της Σούδας” (Souda Bay) + νατο url.  For Spain, see especially http://desobediencia.es/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Gu%C3%ADa-de-Acci%C3%B3n-No-Violenta.pdf or http://desobediencia.es/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Gu%C3%ADa-de-Acci%C3%B3n-No-Violenta.pdf; & Red Antimilitarista y Noviolenta de Andalucía, https://redantimilitarista.wordpress.com/category/antimilitarismo-y-pacifismo/; https://redantimilitarista.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/enlaces-denip.pdf; http://www.ahimsav.com/; http://ahimsa.ahimsav.com/todasweb.htm (Histórico Revistas Ahimsa); Women in Black, Sevilla, “Una Resistencia Feminista Antimilitarista en Red de Alternativas Multilugares: 20 Años de Mujeres de Negro en Andalucía Mujeres de Negro,” 8 Revista Internacional de Pensamiento Político (Sevilla, 2013), 369-384; http://madrid.womeninblack.org/; & http://pensamientopolitico.org/Descargas/RIPP08369384.pdf; Along with http://www.mrg-valencia.org/spip.php?rubrique8; http://desobediencia.es/; http://www.nodo50.org/objecionfiscal/; http://www.derechoderebelion.net/introduccion-a-la-objeccion-fiscal/ (war tax refusal videos); http://www.elotropais.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=38&Itemid=42, (NATO-Rota).  See also http://antiimperialistiko-blog.blogspot.com/2010_04_01_archive.html; http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=el&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fantiimperialistiko-blog.blogspot.com%2F2010_04_01_archive.html&sandbox=1; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Souda_Bay; and https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=el&tl=en&u=http://taxalia.blogspot.com/2014/09/blog-post_227.html&usg=ALkJrhhoOHK9IuQ39msFTxgyZ-Cw3Ma9YQ.

Old ancient or classic Greek demos “democracy” inherently-authorized only about 1% of the total Greek “people” then for “voting” — That 1% or so “voting” utterly-excluded slaves, women, immigrants, war resisters, or farmers unable to travel to “voting” in Athens’ Constitution Square–Syntagma.  Not all that different from “voting” in an oil-war-ruled Saudi Arabian gender-élite regime or NATO–Israel “voting” in apartheid Palestine.  In old Greece, principally Scythian slaves & slave-masters would train the core Athenian police force system.  From 15 – 30% of all the Greco-Roman people — about two-thirds of all Roman slaves — were moreover “branded” with collective Greek slave names.  Marketing over 10,000 slaves per day — Delos, Greece anchored Roman Empire slave markets across the Mediterranean; Boosted by pirates from Sicily to Cilicia.  Undergirded by a “Holy” Roman Empire, Greek-Scythian police tutorial systems would likewise pattern Mamluk slavery policing a thousand-year Ottoman Empire.   Astynomia, Αστυνομία, is the contemporary Greek word for police Combining Asty (for city) & Nomos (law); So “Police” derives from Greek & Latin politeia & politia words, respectively-specifying “voting” city-state citizens.  See Moses Finley, Democracy Ancient and Modern (Rutgers, 1973), 15 & 51; Moses Finley, Ancient Slavery and Modern Ideology (NY: Viking, 1980), 82-86; Moses Finley, “Slavery and the Historians,” Social History (1979), http://hssh.journals.yorku.ca/index.php/hssh/article/viewFile/39014/35396; David Lewis, Greek Slavery in a Near Eastern Context: A Comparative Study of the Legal & Economic Distinctiveness of Greek Slave Systems (Durham, England: Durham University PhD Diss, 2011), http://etheses.dur.ac.uk/3299/1/dlewis_thesis.pdf?DDD3+; Jane Webster, “A Distant Diaspora: Thinking Comparatively about Origins, Migrations & Roman Slavery,” African Diaspora Archaeology Newsletter 13/1 (March 2010), 2; http://scholarworks.umass.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1895&context=adan;Keith Fairbank, "The Strength of Rhodes and the Cilician Pirate," 6/1 - 15 Studia Antiqua (June 2008), 87 ff; http://scholarsarchive.byu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1092&context=studiaantiqua; Elizabeth Baughman, “Scythian Archers: Policing Athens,” in Blackwell, ed., Demos: Classical Athenian Democracy, Stoa: A Consortium (2003), http://www.stoa.org/projects/demos/scythian_archers.pdf; Brown & Morgan, Arming Slaves: From Classical Times to the Modern Age (Yale, 2006); Stella Tsolakidou, “Police in Ancient Greece,” 2013 May 30, http://greece.greekreporter.com/2013/05/30/the-police-in-ancient-greece/; and Elizabeth Gould Davis, First Sex (Penguin, 1975), 54-55; http://the-goddess.org/Wicce/TheFirstSex.doc; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Island_of_Delos; http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/530.  Some international relations diplomatic historians consider the Delian League to have been a primary forerunner of the UN Security Council.  See also http://heindorffhus.motivsamler.dk/worldheritage/frame-GreeceDelos.htm; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cilician_pirates;  http://www.greecetraveler.com/index.php?page=Ancient-Delos; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delos_Symposium; https://adrieltrott.com/2015/07/15/delos-island-of-islands-or-more-beasts-and-sovereigns/; http://www.greektravel.com/greekislands/delos/; & http://www.lonelyplanet.com/greece/cyclades/delos/sights/historic/ancient-delos.

2016.1–6 Report on Apartheid-Nonviolence 101

  

Cyclical Data-driven Wheel of Life Nonviolence–Civil Disobedience Feedback Flow Apps ‒ Methods Phases in a Chart and Three Enlarged or Expanded Tables

           

            What “apps” work as nonviolence – civil disobedience methods?  What data-driven flow dynamics narrative phases differ from evidence-driven “cause-&-effect” stages?   A Mary Joyce-led – collective Google-Plus project online, below, seemed to indicate that at least 40% of Gene-Sharp-cited methods can be applied through apps; including trade union & eco-feminism issues.  If advancing forceful, coercive, conflictive, & powerful nonkilling means–ends, data-driven nonviolence may override discretionary war casualty costs that foreshadow wasted militarized opportunities.  Explicit nonkilling & ecofeminist data flow skillset checklists stretch, for instance, from a nonviolent War Resisters International–WRI to green consensus group action manuals or handbook charts & checklists — for direct action groups like a Greenpeace, Ruckus, Livermore, or Nonviolence International.  An aging primal warlord-oriented mythos or theory-driven scientific paradigm, overlaid with a Euro-centric corporate-nationalist warlord evidence-driven scientific paradigm, has determined consensual human power by whose vote counts.  All the same, a scientific data-driven planetary paradigm may re-value myth & evidence-driven paradigms; As growing affinity groups from familial units to banking, corporate, cooperative, trade union, property owner, & militarized elite, (e.g., “soviet”), groups determine whose digital vote counts.  Narrow app-web data searches result in writers like a Gandhi & Thoreau.[1]  Wider app searches trend toward mobility options, from bike-sharing, car-sharing, city car-share, car2go; self-driving cars, ride-hailing-sharing, & transit mapping-schedules, to ride-hailing-sharing.[2]  A futurist renewable, scientific, cytogenetic-driven & interplanetary-resonant, so-called quantum zero-point energy consciousness paradigm may drive e-voting groups to better articulate civil disobedience for restorative earth justice, unifying cosmic thought & wellbeing.[3]

            Narrating data-driven nonviolence can be symbolized in feedback flow, expressed as civil disobedience phases in a chart & three tables, below, which reflexively-demonstrate: 1) Co-creative nonviolent cultural negotiations to deflect‒unmask injustice with envisioned goals, strategy, & objectives mobilized by participants; (Reveal why attacked, how oppressed).  2) Prefigurative nonviolent direct action to articulate nonviolence, without pre-judging “enemies” engaged over voiced goals; (Reinterpret truthful narratives).  3) Nonviolent restorative (earth) justice to engage truth-force through preparative training to meet community needs; (Truth-seeking justice).  4) War tax resistance ― planet-building security ― to overcome structural “poverty” violence, plus locally-based police & peace teams, despite war budgets, covert bribery, &/or surveillance intimidation, consistent with parallel consensual economics; (Co-creating consonant equity).  And, 5) Cooperative cultural insight to promote participatory democratic local & global organization, as planet-building feedback to de-escalate reactive violence; (Demilitarizing apriori battle-ready targets).  Such a Wheel of Life strengthens inertia-momentum toward institutionalizing intergenerational civil disobedience viability, as in Flow Chart 5 below:

 

Flow Chart 5: Data-driven Wheel of Life Nonviolence–Civil Disobedience Feedback Phases

  

            Given contextual contrasts ― and data dynamics flow on what some call planet Earth, as a militarized 1% exploit the other 99% — oppressively-reflecting undercut human needs in education, employment, health-medical opportunities, & housing shortages — there may be no civil society without civil disobedience.  Data-driven nonviolence – civil disobedience may provide a continuously-effective grasp of mutually-beneficial & -responsible force, conflict, power, & coercion.  What might be scientifically-called cyclical data-driven nonviolence training paradigm phases have been culturally-absorbing linear evidence-driven stages for some time, as will be more fully-articulated in Tables 10, 11, & 12 below.  Early planetary expressions of such a cyclical (“quantum”) paradigm emerged with practical Gandhian eco-feminist insights, through a Satish Kumar, via Schumacher College in England already by 1969.[4]   

            So, as amplified or delineated by enlarging color-coded data flow chart dynamics above into three tables below, graphically — these cyclical phases can be gamed, mapped, & mobilized via App–Url & Goals‒Results — as five Cyclical Wheel of Life Phases in three Nonviolence Civil Disobedience Feedback Tables.  Briefly, nonviolence–civil disobedience phases act to: 1) Organize & negotiate to unmask injustice; 2) Take prefigurative direct civil disobedience action; 3) Restore (earth) justice bioregional rule of law; 4) Pay for war (tax) resistance, simplifying a wholistic (parallel) economy; and 5) Inspire cooperative, cultural planet-building feedback renewal.[5]  Manageable download examples, by phase, follow from Google (1), iTunes (2), and other app–web sources (3) to mobilize these five phases ‒ methods.[6]  Such a cyclical, data-driven “apps” paradigm for nonviolence & ecofeminism, viewed through a civil disobedience lens prism, overshadows linear-positivist writers like a Gene Sharp, as follows, in Table 10:

Phase 1

 

  Phase 1  Nonviolent Cultural Negotiations that may deflect‒unmask expected violence with relevant, overall vision, strategy, & objectives inspired by co-creative participants; Unmask injustice, organize & negotiate justice apps, as to, e.g., transportation, sexual assault, & crisis-mapping.  Focalizing educational human needs.  (Why attacked, how oppressed). 

 Phase 2

  

Phase 2   Prefigurative Nonviolent Direct Action that may re-narrate nonviolent stories with appropriate tactics without blaming “enemies” — working to resolve conflict, consistent with vision; Prefigurative direct civil disobedience action, as to, e.g., resolving arrests or kettling (street jail) with Swarthmore dBase-like apps (including “social” media).  Focalizing employment human needs.  (Reinterpret truthful narratives).

  Phase 3

Phase 3  Nonviolent Restorative (Earth) Justice that may empower truth-force to restore (earth) justice with bioregionally-appropriate rule of law; Restorative (earth) justice community rule to employ, e.g., witness, green mapping, Cradle Count, & Brazilian Bolsa apps.  Focalizing health-medical human needs.  (Truth-seeking justice).

 Phase 4

  

Phase 4  War Tax Resistance (Parallel Greening of Planet) that may overcome structural violence, despite covert bribery &/or intimidation, with direct action consistent with dialogue consensus over discipline & principles; War (tax) resistance for parallel economy to engage, e.g., censorship, anonymity, BDS, & tax-currency apps.  Focalizing housing human needs.  (Co-creating inter-group & e-media equity).  And

Phase 6

 Phase 5  Nonviolent Cultural Insight, (e.g., Cordoba & Kwakiutl cultural samples), that may synergize proactive, participatory democratic local & global organization, without excessive violence side-effects.  Cooperative planet-building mobilization feedback for, e.g., Crabgrass, Firechat, Storymaker, & anti-SOPA-like apps.  Focalizing local–global human rights criteria.  (Devalue-ing apriori battle-ready dogmas).

 

 

Phase 1:  Unmask injustice, organize & negotiate focalizing educational needs apps ‒ phases ‒ methods Nonviolent Cultural Negotiations that deflect‒unmask expected violence with relevant, overall vision, strategy, & objectives inspired by co-creative participants; Unmask injustice, organize & negotiate justice apps, as to, e.g., transportation, sexual assault, & crisis-mapping.  Focalizing educational human needs.  (Reveal why attacked, how oppressed).

Given digital flow dynamics, data-driven nonviolence outcomes accentuate access to food, water, first aid, & interactive community organization basics, coupled with optimizing mobility skills-training.  Sharing hermeneutical, data-driven decision-making & mutually-beneficial ideas prioritizes human needs & rights means – ends criteria.  Mesh or web apps may also compress aggregators, e.g., for: sleep, banking, befriending, dating, language, music, photo, shopping, payments, weather, workouts, GPS, foraging, investments, location, maintenance, pollution, prognostics, reminders, surveillance, translations, diagnostics, anatomy, astronomy, entertainment, anti-smoking, audiology, cardiology, ophthalmology, productivity, physiology, bike-sharing, car-sharing, book readers, map directions, self-improvement, school texts, touch-surgery, digital dissection, appointment minders, bike–door locks, trading & currency, humanitarian emergencies, pay-by-phone, ride-hailing-sharing, building & construction, menu & ordering, & transit-travel routing-scheduling….[31]  Diplomatically, locally‒globally, data-driven insight happens as if increasingly-more disposed to appraising planet- over nation-building.

            Downloads beyond ‘Droid GooglePlay or Apple iTunes may bring up AppBrain, AppsZoom, GetJar, Samsung, SlideMe, Amazon, Mobango, Opera, & Soc.io as phone-mobile app sources.  Comparatively world-order-leaning Google-‘Droid, though, not only started out of Intel-trained Susan Wojcicki’s garage.  She also became the Youtube, DoubleClick, & Google Books founding CEO, while channeling as much as 80% of Google-Alphabet’s long-term marketing income, (according to Forbes Journal).  Besides co-raising her five children, she’s co-piloted mobile ‘Droid tech for over half of all Google traffic.  In the long run, planning for the future, Linda Avey, Susan, & Anne founded 23andme, as run by Anne ― Anne being Susan’s younger sister, who married & divorced Google-co-founder Sergei Brin ― to sequence cytogenetic family genomes for medical foresight, publicized by, e.g., Oprah Winfrey in “roots” dialogue.  Even though the U.S. FDA “outlawed” 23andme, shortly-before Walgreens & CVS could market it in a simplified form ‒ 23andme transmutes U.S. health care “outside” the U.S.  In any event, Susan Wojcicki also saw fit to bestow on Tzipi Hotovely, Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister‒Knesset, Google’s “comprehensive review mechanism” to censure allegedly-violent (BDS?) Intifada-related online videos.[32]  Outside of StartPage Search, apps “beyond” Apple-Google could reflect more future nonviolence or anti-dependency needs & outcomes options.

            Change, however digitized ― within a legal-cultural violence-to-nonviolence means-ends spectrum for resolving conflict ― suggests World order-oriented “data” still leans more toward conservative “natural” moral law or norms; Anti-dependency, toward revising “natural” positivist law; and Nonviolence, toward contextual contract law.  Fundamentalist natural law world order advocates disenfranchise voters to justify slavery or segregation.  Revisionist “natural” law, positivist-oriented devotees safeguard private property & justify “free market” bargaining contract rules.  In turn, nonviolent-oriented advocates prefer to innovate or renovate contextual contractual rules that increase or liberate bargaining freedom, all so as to curb marketplace “anomalies” like opportunism, wrong facts, & caste or apartheid insults ― with nonkilling.  Hierarchally-arranged World order “data” tends toward anarchic, corporativized militarization; Anti-dependency approaches, toward less-hierarchically-rigid, less-centralized militarization; and Nonviolent approaches, toward consensual consciousness-raising & problem-solving, with less reified anarchy.  Civil disobedience “data” may thus anticipate “breaking” of law(s), so as to invest in “higher” planetarily-conscientious contextual laws that inspire & reaffirm divine force or essential power.  Planet-building nonviolence logistically takes grass-roots-level time, effort, & practical teamwork experience, a step at a time, much like building green, zero-step, universally-designed, fire-resistant structures ― outlining goals & enacting planning with strategic feedback.  Nonviolence‒Nonkilling academies arose within a Harvard University-associated Albert Einstein (Nonviolence) Institute–AEI, (via Gene Sharp), & a University of Hawai’i Center for Global Nonkilling-CGNK; (via Glenn Paige), for evidence-driven, dyadic‒interpersonal, and class- & culturally-tuned methodologies.

 

 

Data-Driven Paradigm Eclipsing Evidence-Driven (“Sharp” Pre-Digital) “Nonviolence”

 

            Positivist, evidence-driven nonviolence training, by definition, started with alleged cause-&-effect linear stages — rather than data-driven flow phases — transforming cooperative & non-cooperative planning alternatives.  In a word, linearly-apt nonviolence & civil disobedience trainers viewed change in stages, not as cyclical phases.  Rooted in an evidence-driven scientific paradigm — long-term nonviolence trainers, such as a George Lakey, have experienced nonviolent civil disobedience training stages firsthand; Then again, such would also envision “chambered nautilus” & accelerated “break-away from patriarchal rigidity” phases.  Data-driven training may underscore planetary flow dynamics, such as embracing affected opportunity & shadow costs within the inner child — to meet human needs, to encourage consciousness-raising, and to enable reconciliation before confrontation.[33]  Retrospectively, if nonviolence ‒ civil disobedience training stages do mobilize as cyclical, data-driven phases, as expressed below — then the staged framework of Gene Sharp’s 199 methods may generally, more-or-less, be abridged into five stages, re-phrased thereby; Upgrading from “stage” to phase, by placing oft-cited Evidence-Driven 198 or 199 Methods of Nonviolent Action — from many websites — into a Table 11: Data-Driven Paradigm Apps ‒ Methods ‒ Phases Eclipsing “Gene Sharp”-patterned Evidence-Driven (Pre-Digital) “Nonviolence” ‒ as re-phrased below:

A Mary Joyce-led – collective online spreadsheet work project exemplified one attempt to blend nonviolence methods in both data & evidence-drive paradigms, that is, to upgrade the evidence-driven 198 or 199 methods influenced by Gene Sharp, comparatively — with data-driven apps listed via Google-Plus, side-by-side.  The former, older, linear, evidence-driven paradigm conveying positivist-oriented methodology had also favored national-oriented stages, over the latter’s planetary-building-oriented dynamics.  Of course, some events like weeding a garden or “hitting” the streets need to be done physically.  What follows below – condensed, integrated, & synthesized ― summarizes the Joyce collective Google-Plus project, which also by-passes, by omission ...., those “Sharp” methods not practicable in current apps.:[34]  Articulated in a Table 12: Combining Linear Evidence-driven Paradigm with Cyclical Data-driven Paradigm Apps ‒ Phases ‒ Methods for Nonviolence – Civil Disobedience, below:

            Contrasted with terms like civil-rights, -resistance, or -organization ― cognitively-inclusive terms like “civil disobedience” will further-evolve as “big” data-driven, (eclipsing evidence-driven), key or touchstone terms — As planetary data-driven hermeneutics “overrule” evidence-driven debate in nonviolence discourse.  For instance, Erica Chenoweth & Maria Stephan’s epic, evidence-driven Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict yields aptly-noble nation-state samples of less-violent conflict resolution results; Finding that nonviolence (& violence) better resolve international conflictive events in about 50% (& 25%) of the time, internationally, respectively.  But, under polarized state repression, noble intentions may be co-opted when exercizing civil disobedience, restorative justice, war tax resistance, or cultural consciousness toward planet-building — Especially where “foreign” wars by TNC-militarized nation-states “exceptionalize” or criminalize-by-protracted-war world oil-relevant zones.  Viewing such oil-relevant conflict-resolution through ― e.g., a NATO – U.S. State Department-biased ― world-order evidence-driven paradigm, as to, for instance, Cuba, Mozambique, Palestine, Vietnam, Argentina, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and South Africa or Korea, (North & South), will turn-out differently than might a data-driven nonviolence or anti-dependency-oriented conflict resolution analysis of the same conflicts. 

            Other than states like an Iceland or Costa Rica, and leaders like a Cory Aquino, Hillary Clinton, Mahmoud Abbas, or Aung San Suu Kyi, and, at times, a Barack Obama — few states or state leaders have yet to even risk using words like nonviolence in public statements.  In the interim, an anti-dependency-oriented Cuba or a neutrally-oriented Costa Rica claim neither to need nor want militarized U.S. security.  Costa Rica likewise pioneered ratifying a gender parity Equal Rights Amendment in the Americas.  Both states have likewise led world-class struggle to nationalize their banking systems so as to avoid TNC exploitation, as did Costa Rica in nationalizing its banks in 1914 & 1948 and Cuba in 1960.  Atypically, worldwide, most of all, various states like a Costa Rica, have claimed to have abolished culturally-entrenched conscriptive- and omnicidally-militarized systems.[35]

_ Paradigmatic Nonviolence, Anti-Dependency, & World Order Future Approaches

So could international relations dialogue overcome human needs & wellness shortcomings, by way of nonviolence & nonkilling?  A potential nonviolence – conflict resolution approach or outlook paradigm, outdoing world order & anti-dependency views, might reflect reality like the Venn Diagram below: Venn Diagram 2: Paradigm Approaches, Along Spectrum from Less to More Omnicidal Violence); Starting from Rainbow Paradigm …  (Source cites below):

   

   
Singular figures of planetary import like a John Meynard Keynes (economist) or William McDonough (architect) have mixed world order & nonviolence; a Florence Kelley, nonviolence & anti-dependency.  Data-driven divestment-disclosure campaigns toward zero-point energy, enhanced by planning of equitable futures & subsuming of near death experiences, may not likely happen without global civil disobedience suppressed by massive regime arrests.  To that end, Carl Jung presumed that a kundalini chakra-driven collective subconscious impelled 1930s Gandhian liberation (Purna Swaraj) scale-level campaigns; invigorating souls or chthonic anima.  Civil disobedience may unmask oppression & redress injustice — break state laws in favor of what might be called planetary laws — so as to force mutually-responsible consciousness-raising, empowered by recognizing & overcoming injustice in bad laws. Yet U.S. laws lack provisions for acknowledging “electronic civil disobedience” or validating online protest as “free” speech.  If disrespecting civil disobedience, even environmentalists like a John Muir, (exiled as an 1860’s War draft dodger, first to Canada, north of Lake Huron, & then to California), endorsed indigenous “removal” to promote national parks.  Contrariwise, iconic Henry David Thoreau & Aldo Leopold resisted war taxes.  “Austerity” policy-making, denoting a Cartesian-Newtonian world order, bleeds-dry “green” planetary energy paradigms.

To wit, Keynes’ most influential international relations work, The Economic Consequences of the Peace, (1919), critiqued oppressive post-WWI Versailles treaty pre-conditions, as inciting 1940s (WW II) wars.  Keynes’ 1940s economic theories led England’s fiscal battles to withstand European fascism & nazism; throughout what amounted to his conscientious objector service years.  He also chaired 1944 World Bank (& IMF) negotiations for the Bretton Woods system.  However the U.S. & Soviet Union sidelined his U.N. proposals for a world Bancor currency, in a globally-regulated banking system, with an International Single Currency Clearing Union, and for reasonable federal lending before so-called austerity measures, to support viable business over long-cycle losses.  In short, Keynesian-style economics contend that high unemployment follows inadequate aggregate sales demand or profit margins, & so requires state intervention to moderate “boom & bust” business cycles; latter underscored by Joseph Schumpeter & Joseph Stiglitz.  Time magazine (1999) observed that: “His radical idea that governments should spend money … [that they had failed to equitably tax for] … saved capitalism.”  In contradistinction, Florence Kelley translated Marx & Engels primary anti-dependency work over both men & women in-depth, i.e., the Condition of the Working Class in England (1845) into English, but Engels refused to pay her for it as promised as a woman; She also tried to enable one of Marx’s daughters, Eleanor, after she had married a Caribbean black man, to avoid suicide; when her father, Karl, more-or-less disowned her for her own interracial marriage.  Kelley could not draw Marx & Engels into significant environmental dialogue either.  A Quaker lawyer, better known as the first U.S. factory health inspector (OSHA …) — where more factory workers have died “on-the-line” than soldiers in “foreign” wars — Kelley thus also organized coalitions for health care, consumer rights, & a 40-hour work week, while abolishing child labor, nation-wide.

Forster, & Lytton Strachey.  Most comprehensive library Author ever encountered concerning Keynes met during work a Quaker carpenter, so as to pay for a PhD degree, in the home of John & Miriam Holsen.  Darrell & Mildred Randall, cited previously as to struggle against apartheid in Southern Africa, also knew the Holsens, since John served as a conscientious objector in Angola during the Korean War.  John led World Bank Country Studies programs, (Ambassador status), before being recalled from retirement to lead efforts to rescue Russia after the Berlin Wall “fell” — Miriam & that Quaker carpenter’s wife then taught advanced math in an Afro-American DC ghetto, Anacostia, high school, producing scholarship-funded, academically-competitive, & university-bound students.

 

_ Nonviolence–Civil Disobedience Approaches in Iraq 

 

During a 1920 Revolution, an Iraqi Women’s Awakening Club affected water, literacy, & suffrage concerns.  Water concerns, like Ilisu Dam, one of twenty-two Southeastern Turkey-Anatolia planned dams, still menace the Tigris River watershed, Iraq’s core water supply.  Iraqi ecological groups, such as the Save the Tigris & Marshes Campaign, address such dams and high cancer & birth defect cluster rates near military bases.  Iraq’s Organization of Women’s Freedom has mediated divorce, inheritance, polygamy, & child marriage issues; Sheltering women facing gender violence, especially bad near Hawija & Karbala military bases, where teens & children encounter major accumulative cancer, polio, & brain atrophy trends.  Under occupation contexts, a so-called Jaafari Law, March 2014, however, reversed women’s rights in divorce, inheritance, polygamy, & child marriage.  A 2005 Parliamentary Order 8750 radically-froze General Federation of Trade Unions of Iraq bank accounts.  By 2010 conflictive Iraqi nonviolence momentum had enabled pro-democracy protests in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square, & resonated in 2011 “Arab Spring” Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, & Egypt Cairo – Alexandria waves of protest.

British & U.S. occupation promised liberation & independence, but aimed to replace military elites & marginalize basic Iraqi human needs; In effect offsetting-paralyzing ethnic & sectarian strife, to manipulate oil cost–access.  Triggered to control oil, currency, & military elites, effected “transitional” U.S.-focused administrative laws overrode state power to tax or govern such issues as water & minorities, like Turkmen, Yazidis, & Christians, (Chaldean or Assyrian).  The top U.S. commander, Paul Bremer, prioritized appointing 25 exiles to replace Iraqi military elites, so as to dismiss a half-million career soldiers & all past imposed or voluntary Ba’ath party members, including most Iraqi teachers.  By modifying a so-called 1948 Portsmouth Treaty, Iraqi civil disobedience campaigns did briefly-impede British militarization.  League of Nations 1920 Mandates effectively-justified a 1919 Treaty of Versailles that favored England, (& humiliated Germany), using an Iraqi civil service copied from India to control Middle Eastern oil.  A British-French Sykes-Picot Agreement partitioned Middle-East borders, projected by air force hegemony over pliant monarchies, after British soldiers took Basra & Baghdad by 1917.

_ Maturing World Population in International Conflict Resolution

 

Caregiving in aging demographic contexts may be the fastest growing group of occupations in states like the U.S., potentially through something like a “care grid” ensuring, e.g., water, internet, & electricity access.  Various models for organizing caregiving communities range from “Carepod” Collaborative Networks, like Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities–NORC, or a Beacon Hill Village in Boston & Capitol Hill Village in Washington, DC — to caregiving time bank (Fureai Kippu) credits in Japan, for reimbursing those who help disabled neighbors.  Regional initiatives may launch through imported-Euro examples, like a Co-operative Home Care Associates (CHCA) of New York’s South Bronx Cooperatives ― likely the largest worker-owned U.S. cooperative.  As in many other nations, “Social Security” advocacy networks could cap payroll taxes, to finance caregiving from capital interest on investments & stock dividends or real estate rental income, as well as capital gains.  Apps include a “Betty” handheld mobile–web portal, designed by Robert Nascenzi to systematize medications & social service networking.

On February 15, 2003, about 30 million people in about 800 cities worldwide gathered as one, to mobilize planet “earth” to resist oil wars in, e.g., Iraq — prefiguring, designating a maturing world population conscience & amassing the world’s largest such demonstration to-date.  By 2011 November 6-7, about 1,200 people (of 12,000) encircled the U.S. White House, to court arrest over tar sand pipelines.  About 40 Sierra Club members, (including an executive director & board president), also did civil disobedience then for the first time in Sierra’s 120-year history, despite bylaws separating Sierra from civil disobedience-proficient groups like Greenpeace.  Yet such global anti-oil war protests must also contest yellowcake, (densely-dried uranium), mined from Oglala Lakota & Saskatchewan Native AmeriCanadian mines‒wells — shipped through Cameco Refineries in Port Hope, Ontario; Cameco being the world’s single-largest uranium producer, and, thus, the single most dangerous long-term polluter of the Oglala Aquifer, underlying much of the world’s corn & grain potential.  Post-militarization disclosure will likely hinge on divestment from oil-driven wars, nonviolently-foreshadowing “green” civil disobedience consciousness-raising.  Redistributing the cost of even a few dementia-violence-inclined sports stadium franchises could also substantially-reallocate “1%” of the world’s wealth into comprehensive university tuition, if academically-qualified.  Although even presupposing an interplanetary future with ensuing trade & diplomacy would reframe a greater planetary paradigm shift than ascertaining the Americas or a heliocentric star system.  Relative quantum (interplanetary) consciousness might well concern revised views of planet “earth” ethnography, with better understanding of closer, greater star clusters, (like M87 galaxy, Virgo constellation), & intergalactic nuclei, (beyond the Milky Way).

In the 1980s, groups like Greenpeace & the Shoshone Indians motivated, for instance, Harvard-associated leaders like Lisa Peattie, Lewis Vitale, & Daniel Ellsberg, and mobilized John Mack, his family partner, Sally, & all three sons — to do civil disobedience against the Nevada “Bomb” Site, near Area-51 — so as to “liberate” their spiritual well-being.  Harvard’s Lester Grinspoon & Margaret Brenman-Gibson, (latter married to William Gibson, cyber innovator), Ann & Carl Sagan, & a 77-year-old Lawrence Scott, (latter, veteran anti-Bomb activist since 1957), also courted arrest in 115 degree heat.  As a first-generation U.S. Jew, patterned by their living for two years in Japan, Sally advocated using the Nuremberg (Nazi Holocaust) Defense legal strategy for their nonviolent civil disobedience case.  Future planning might include schooling of children for human needs & rights equity–sharing, whatever levels; such as the Macks’ ensuing redirection of “Harvard” dialogue to allow even alleged-interplanetary narratives.  By extension, one might also conceptualize “Nuremberg” civil disobedience strategies to heal psychic numbing to overcome all weapons of mass destruction — “verily”-escalated, so as to put “Greenpeace” into, e.g., CIA, NRO, & NSA offices; and interposition peace teams, (& if extant, grass-roots-oriented “remote viewing”) into: the conversion of covert arms & drug business budgets, reinvestment of drug company profits into holistic medical insurance, and redistribution of “1%” covert, off-shore tax loopholes & classified budgets — into meeting all basic embryonic human needs, including nonviolent defense & demilitarization initiatives.

NASA & military R & D groups also prompt future paradigmatic trends, contrasted with quantum or mutually-supportive “Zero Point”–ZP renewable (non-fossil, non-nuclear) fuel wind, water, & solar energy options.  However, rather than public ZP access or interplanetary overtures, world order futures approaches pilot highly-“classified” funding of works like that of NSA’s Edwin May-led militarily-indemnified remote viewing “intel” projects — Latter spun-off from Stanford Research Institute–SRI’s Russell Targ & Hal Puthoff, or those like the University of Tucson, AZ, or UC–Durham Rhine Research Centre’s Stephan Schwartz.  World order-oriented “futures” pre-select diminishing world population and evolving cytogenetics of disease, e-trade, & communication factor levels; Where consciousness accrues through accentuation of qi (Chinese) & nadi or prana (Indian) lines of force, as it were.  Schwartz, nevertheless, also acknowledges that the most consequential nonviolence track records derive from consensually-funded & organized groups, highlighting Greenpeace & the Quakers (or Society of Friends), who altogether number less than, e.g., 0.0008% of U.S. population; But such small groups have started historic civil rights, nuclear freeze, penal reform, public education, women’s suffrage, slavery abolition, & environmental security planetary campaigns.  Schwartz, in effect, obliquely-advocates what Mohandas Gandhi called satyagraha–“essence” in his last interview before his assassination:  “The essence of who we were … made the British choose to leave India.”  And, so, co-fostered liberation struggle across the so-called Third World.

In the case of William McDonough, writers like Rachel Carson, (Silent Spring 1962), convinced him to work for Greenpeace, originally, where he led a chemistry branch & allied nonviolent civil disobedience action team, which — after factory & firefighting spills devastated Rhine River wildlife over a hundred mile area — chained themselves atop Basel, Switzerland, Ciba-Geigy smokestacks for two days.  The Greenpeace team next met Ciba-Geigy’s director, Anton Schaerli, who responded to their appeal to fund an environmental bio-chemical “enforcement” group, with an “encouragement” agency – which McDonough headed worldwide.  Sequential McDonough architectural contracts encouraged consequent “biophilia” designs like the Herman Miller Hudsonville Michigan-based furniture factories, interfacing workplace & outdoors, so as to enhance quality & retention rates.  Biologist Stephen Jay Gould analogously-described such “biophilia” architecture as form following function — reshaping genes into organic results, blending recycled-upcycled redundancy, upstream, to advance evolutionarily-sustainable consciousness, downstream; e.g., organically-growing buildings or furniture.  Designed around a tree-lined interior as if day-lit “streets” — Herman Miller’s skylights & windows light-up halls, stations, & rail or truck docks.  Herman Miller designs blend indigenous landscape & species, cycling storm & waste water through wetlands, local rivers, & Lake Michigan.  Incorporating Herman Miller “biophilia” designs, Ford Company’s Detroit River Rouge plant next turned room walls & ceilings themselves into ducts to cool & heat ergonomically — for its world headquarters with 200 million ft sq. of “green” roofing & for its satellite plants.  Correspondingly, McDonough built global warming consciousness into the architectural character of an American University School of International Service–AU-SIS center in Washington DC; paralleling a global Green Schools Alliance prototype, Sidwell Friends (Quaker) School.  Nike also merged recyclable-upcyclable “biophilia” rubber into its products.

For Venn Diagram Sources Sites, Please See: Hermeneutical or contextual paradigm approaches relevant in nonviolence may be closer to current molar-hologram quantum physics than historic probability or relativity physics theory.  The latter relied more on measuring irreversible causes & effects of events as allegedly-empirical, observable facts, (i.e., closer to the world order or anti-dependency approaches); See Arthur Eddington, The Philosophy of Science (NYC: Macmillan, 1939), 28-30, 89-91, & 208-223.  Along a continuum predisposed toward neutrality or nonviolence, via Indian satyagraha experience, e.g., Mohandas Gandhi, Mahendra Kumar, & J.C. Kumarrappa chose to compare nonviolence with world order & anti‑dependency counterpoints;  See Kumar, Violence and Nonviolence in International Relations (New Delhi: Thomson [India], Ltd., 1975), 40-101 & 198-233.  For police – peace team insights, through Charles Alphin, Sr., who trained 50,000 U.S. police officers in nonviolent methods; see Alphin, “Kingian Nonviolence as an Alternative to Terrorist & Anti-Terrorist Killing and War,” http://www.oldsite.transnational.org/SAJT/forum/Nonviolence/2002/Alphin_KingianNonviolence.html; );  http://www.mkgandhi.org/nonviolence/policing.htm; http://sevagramgandhiashram.org/gandhi-articles/kingian-nonviolence.php; http://www.mkgandhi.org/articles/kingian%20nonviolence.htm; & https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/peace-non-violence-conflict-resolution-views-dr-mlk-jr-manohar; Alphin, Jehnsen, & LaFayette, The Law Enforcement Workbook (Galena, OH: Institute for Human Rights & Responsibilities, 1996; Mary Hanna, “A [Lansing MI] Peace Team in Action,” 2013 Sept 5,  http://mettacenter.org/nonviolence-for-daily-living/a-peace-team-in-action/; and Alphin & LaFayette, “Kingian Nonviolence Leadership Training,” in Glenn Paige & Joám Evans Pim, ed., Global Nonkilling Leadership (Honolulu, HI, 2007), http://www.nonkilling.org/pdf/forum1.pdf.  Author grateful to David Jehnsen for July 2015 email identifying relevant police nonviolent peace team training publications and for his observation that the Rockford, IL Police Department Command Rank Leadership starting using such in 2015; see, e.g., “Rockford Illinois Chief of Police Chet Epperson,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg94YBYUfz8.  Jehnsen also edited & published works like a Community Mobilization Skills for Law Enforcement manual.  Representing about 80% of the planet’s population, so-called Third World theorists tend to stress an anti-imperialist or anti-dependency approach.  For international relations paradigm approaches, overall, such as positivist, constructivist & structuralist viewpoints, see Sidney Tarrow, New Transnational Activism (Cambridge U 2005), 20, http://www.hse.ru/data/2012/11/03/1249193755/Sidney_Tarrow_The_New_Transnational_Activism.pdf; Tarrow, Tilly, & McAdam, (Cornell, Columbia, & Stanford) “Comparative Perspectives on Contentious Politics,” in Lichbach & Zuckerman, eds., Comparative Politics: Rationality, Culture, and Structure: Advancing Theory in Comparative Politics (Cambridge U, 2007), 7 & 13; http://socialsciences.cornell.edu/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/McAdamTarrowTilly07.pdf; William T.R.

_ Webchart 2: Nonviolent–Nonkilling Training Outcomes

_ Webchart 3: Nonviolent Training Outcome Chart Comparing Interpositioning Criteria

_ 2015 Online Nonviolence ‒ Civil Disobedience Syllabi or Course Outlines

 

Webcharts 2 & 3 aim to seek or provoke dialogue on when, where, & what nonviolent conflict resolution and civil disobedience means in international or planetary … nonviolence applications ― e.g., ecofeminism, cyber-struggle, war (tax) resistance, restorative justice, & global peace teams ― so as to update methodologies beyond currently-verified “199” methods explored in Gene Sharp–Swarthmore College dBase lists.  If understood correctly, Method #199 includes many ways of using bicycle u-locks, pioneered, as it were, by eco-groups like EarthFirst & GreenPeace–Ruckus.  Methods #200 & beyond tend to concern eco-feminist nonviolence-civil disobedience data-driven ways of locally & globally changing consciousness as consensus; Transcending earlier paradigmatic ways of theory- and evidence-driven changes influencing social–national change.  Suggestions welcome — If used in writing Nonviolence 101 Manual, all methods suggested beyond #200 will be fully cited & sourced.

 

_ Webchart 2: Nonviolent–Nonkilling Training Outcomes Chart Comparing Military & Nonviolence–Nonkilling:

Military Teams

Nonviolent–Nonkilling Teams

 

Need to transcend blood-lust & dogmatic militarism typified by imperial or nation-state gladiatorial ‘slaves’ or republican-“citizen” militarization.  Need to join well-trained, intercultural coalition-building with police forces; including restorative justice.

More planetary than international consciousness.  Not as dependent on banks central to corporativized fossil-fuel and arms & drugs business wars.  More likely to know relevant indigenous cultures & languages.  Considerably less-costly deployment per use of “soldier” vs satyagrahi; especially U.S. cost / dead “targets”.

Need for judo (Olympic-level) inter-related unarmed, nonlethal styles of close combat, including submission holds & how to fall with minimum injuries.

Living-working (interpositioning) within context of prolonged or protracted wars.  More integrated into community-based (local-global) needs & rights.  Judo leverage applied organizationally. 

Need to correlate intervention with blue-helmeted U.N. and white-helmeted Arab States-style interpositioning groups.

Defensive – offensive (friend vs foe or enemy) dichotomy not primary in training or practice.

 

Need to standardize gender parity beyond sexual assault & torture associated with patriarchal military violence.

 

More likely to share trust within ranks, vs militarized sexual assault-torture trends.  More equitable gender distribution in teams than in hierarchically-grouped military contingents.

 

 

Need to be highly-mobile, yet not dependent on fossil fuel energy.

 

Less dependent on fossil-fuel-war-hegemony if using wind, hydro, solar ... energy power.

Need to resolve gender & indigenous disparity in host countries.

Not as likely to be drawn into child abuse or prostitution as U.N. peacekeepers.  More likely to deploy gender parity-conscious forces, as in Nonviolent PeaceForce NP-South Sudan.

2015.4-6 Report on Apartheid-Nonviolence 101

  _ NATOIsrael and Nonviolent Restorative Justice

 NATO militarized globally over commercialized fears that a blockaded Oil Gulf would snuff lights & power from Berlin to Tokyo.  So NATO tapped Greek-Balkan-Israeli bases as bridge-heads for getting Middle-East oil.  NATO-Greece in Crete’s Souda Bay, for example, symbolically lies 150 miles (240 kms) from Libya, 200 miles (320 kms) from the Suez, & 300 miles (480 kms) from Gibraltar.  At 22 months, Greek military conscription terms presented NATO with its “highest military/civilian ratio” the lengthiest impressment among NATO states, outside Israel & Switzerland.  Athens has tolerated ecologically-toxic NATO-Israel bases leveraging World Bank & International Monetary Fund debt-load bank-to-bank schemes; but not, so, Berlin-imposed (anti-basic needs) austerity, muddled with Nazi fascist occupation memories.  Under guise of restorative democracy, by retributive warfare & prison hegemony, NATO has assumed that planet security or stability depends on fighting fire with more fires — not water; Fires that replicate war crimes.  NATO-Israel renderings of restorative justice were not, therefore, designed to meet peace with justice needs in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Ramallah, or Gaza; Nor to restoring a Palestinian right-to-vote.  NATO has even threatened Belgium that it would desert Brussels (EU), to demonstrate full U.S. hegemony over oil access, if Dutch-Belgian attorneys continue to pressure against NATO-Iraq-Afghanistan (& IsraelPalestine) cluster bombing of civilians under home planet jurisdiction principles, over war crimes against humanity.  All the while, NATO’s primary ethos, the U.S. nation state, imprisons a higher percentage of its own black & brown people than did apartheid-era South Africa.  Up to 75% of particularly-militarized Washington DC-area black men face arbitrary arrest or jail time, in conditions not unlike Israeli apartheid occupation.  In such militarized U.S. apartheid, 70% of abused working women, principally in militarized families, report late to work, miss three or more work days a month, & need to use work time to access lawyer, shelter, or counselor help.  Subsequently, NATO saturation-bombed states like Libya, Kosovo, & Gaza in Palestine embody suspension of climate change commitments.  If comparably-militarized elites in BRICs states, like Brazil, China, India, & Russia, manage to aid their own homeless “war” refugees, despite polarized hierarchies, oligarchic façades, & marginalized regimes — A global BRICS bankrolling coalition, based in Shanghai, despite Composite–Hang Seng stock meltdowns, could enable Greece to counterbalance NATO-induced debt, and, so NATO-Israel oil hegemony.

By 1995 NATO-Israel-hedged Oslo Accords reified Israeli- (& Palestinian)-militarized law with U.S. oil-driven criteria.  After 1995, U.S. police & intelligence officers trained Fatah’s Presidential Guard & related security elite, especially in Langley VA & Philadelphia PA.  After 1996, the U.S. Central Intelligence AgencyCIA catered equipment & torture training in counter-terrorism, concentrated in Palestinian state modifications of the Israeli Shin Bet (“FBI”) & Mossad (“CIA”).  Like British colonial policing, Israeli-Palestinian state police officers may tend to work apart from where they reside, above all for alleged political prisoner torture protocols; Rendering the Palestinian judiciary rather powerless, vis-à-vis weak legislatures, conflictive Gaza & West Bank legal structures, & unreported FatahShin Bet meddling.  FatahShin Bet arrest as desired, try them through “their” courts, and jail them in “their” prisons; Meanwhile, judges & first-responders fear lax police protection.  Relatively-untrained for policing, military forces compromise professional peacekeeping, with minimal detective & corrective skill-sets, in laggardly-handling of organized crime or penal-judicial follow-up; Skill-sets not prioritized, yet, either, by U.N. International Civilian PoliceUNCIVPOL in serial warfare scenarios.

Planet earth’s tallest (1,312 ft. U.S.-built & -run) radar tower, as Israel’s highest tower, signals NATO-Israel 70 x 260 mile forward base logistics.  The U.S. itself handles eight known military bases, a 5-story “911” operations command center, & a 500-bed hospital to accommodate 20,000 war casualties in Israel; Near Ben Gurion Airport, Herzliya Pituah (coastal Tel Aviv), and Ovda & Nevatim Israeli Air ForceIAF bases.  The US Army Corps of Engineers administers three Israeli office buildings for projects like the Corps’ construction of a 2.5 mile long runway, with 100 support buildings & over 10 miles of roads for one such IAF base; Along with drone maintenance shops, underground jet fighter-bomber hangars, and subsurface command & intelligencesimulation hubs.  Contrasting Palestine mediation & reconciliation goals comparatively-diverge from NATO-Israel goals.  Palestinian Sulha conflict resolution ritualizes regional restorative justice & peacemaking, and accentuates community dialogue to undermine dominant status quo violence.  Sulha restorative justice may advance interdependent liberation to meet human needs & rights, as to residential family employment & property issues.  Sulha’s hardest cases run “afoul” of militarily-convoluted gender or environmental disputes that might disable or overcome NATO-Israel-applied apartheid status quo violence like disputed interloping cellular surveillance and municipal noise, road, or access rules, as well as militarily-squeezed sewage, electricity, or hazardous toxic waste laws; in addition to anarchic, culturally-afflictive uprooting of ancient olive tree groves, formerly-symbolizing “holy” land at peace.  Still, U.N.-related groups in Beirut, Lebanon, even with 1980s Israeli invasions, yet not as ruined as in NATO-Israel Gaza bombing like the UNICEF-Palestine–Jerusalem, Welfare AssociationGeneva, & Norwegian People’s Aid–Oslo — synergize 120 Palestinian refugee training centers for employment, education, health care, & housingmicro-enterprise loan programs.

Palestinian municipalities in Bil’in, Hebron, Jenin, Ni’lin, Bethlehem, Qalqilya, & Ramallah promote local nonviolence campaigns, with protests to neutralize the U.S.-Israeli tax-funded Apartheid Wall via the Association for Civil Rights in IsraelACRI & the Jerusalem Legal Aid & Human Rights CenterJLAC through global Boycott, Divestment & SanctionsBDS advocacy campaigns.  Notably, in due time, such walls have failed defensively, (as in the 1940s Nazi Atlantic Wall), and offensively, (as in the Berlin “Cold War” Wall).  Early in 2009, accordingly, through attorneys in Canada, (Mark Arnold), & Israel, (Michael Sfard or Mikhaʼel Sefarad), the Bil’in village council sued two settler-apartheid-hate-supporting, Brooklyn-based “Canadian” companies, Green Park International & Green Mount International, owned by Israeli-American billionaires Leviev & Boymelgreen, before Canada’s provincial Quebec Supreme Court; Countered by Israeli soldiers radicalizing Bil’in arrest rates, especially children under age 18.  Hence, global BDS campaign objectives correspondingly-spotlight blood conflict Leviev apartheid diamonds & Boymelgreen “Wall Street”-style apartheid.  By and large, NATO-Israeli Military Order 101, (from 1981 Order 947), authorizes arrest & detention of (rather-nonviolent) Palestinian citizens, to incorporate indiscriminately-applied weapons like Scream, Skunk, & Tear Gas.  NATO-Israel wars hurltest weapons on 4 million Palestinians “locked” in Gaza & the West Bank, to authenticate hegemonic oil access & profit wars.  NATO-Israel apartheid-oil-war-prison laws justify occupation in three significant ways, to:

 

1)  Enforce road, housing, employment, education, health care, & private property access barriers;

 

2)  Detain participants in any business, gathering, or publication, criminalizing 20% of the general & 40% of the male adult Palestinian population; And

 

3)  Impress ‘begging’ or plea bargaining to “skip” jail-time if not, often a doubled sentence; But “free” nearly 100% of corresponding Israeli suspects, comparatively-released, without indictment.

 

Apartheid arrest-detainment need not confine alleged non-Palestinians with recourse to Israeli or other courts.
