“War and Peace in the Trumpian Era”
with Michael Klare
Even if Donald Trump had not been elected, the world would probably be experiencing a greater risk of great-power conflict due to a variety of pressures (China’s rise, Russia’s adventurism, America’s fear of decline), but with his ascension to the presidency the risk is increasing. This talk will assess the forces that make friction and conflict among the great powers more likely, and consider what can be done to minimize these risks.Author of 14 books, Michael Klare is the Five College Professor of Peace & World Security Studies and Defense Correspondent of The Nation magazine.
Music by Fabiola Mendez, cuatro & Zack Auslander, guitar
Join us for a friendly lunch after the program.
A recent article published in the New Yorker caught the attention of one of our members: “Break-In at Y-12: How a handful of pacifists and nuns exposed the vulnerability of America’s nuclear-weapons sites.” We’d like to share it with you below, just click on the image to read it.
The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources. We are working together with HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team) to become more energy efficient, which will keep the congregation more comfortable, lower our energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of our building.
