London Pacifism and Nonviolence Discussion Group meeting.
The meetings are at the same time and place on the second Tuesday of every month.
One aspect of this topic is that pacifists, like anyone of conviction and conscience, are liable to find themselves up against the legal structures of the society they live in - given the nature of these societies. How can pacifists deal with this?
And on a deeper level, how can any legal system, if it relies - ultimately - on the threat of violence to enforce it, be compatible with a pacifist worldview? But in that case, how can those committed to nonviolence organise a co-operative, but not coercive, form of society?
The topic will be introduced by someone fresh from a couple of days in the dock.
Please try to arrive promptly by 7pm.
