This week's episode features an interview with Peter Gelderloos. Peter is the author of "How Nonviolence Protects the State", "Anarchy Works" and most recently of "The Failure of Nonviolence: From the Arab Spring to Occupy."
In this hour Peter discusses the arguments in "The Failure...", surmises the efficacy of nonviolent civil disobedience mass movements since the end of the Cold War, looks at some of the main and most visible supporters of the NVCD and what a more verdant struggle might look like.
