Enemies of Peace is a documentary film that serves as a warning sign of the
impending threat of escalating war, specifically in the Middle East. Although
the rhetoric about North Korea has dominated media coverage, the danger of war
spreading further across the Middle East region is especially imminent
considering the ongoing conflicts in Syria and Yemen and the recent power-plays
and shifting alliances among Gulf nation leaders. The massive proliferation of
arms sales to several Middle Eastern countries by our government over the past
several years in addition to the increasing number of U.S. Military bases and
direct U.S. military involvement in the region illustrate the deepening
involvement of the U.S in a widening conflict zone.
Sadly, our governmental officials as well as the public are not sufficiently
informed in regards to the dynamics of the conflicts in the region. Enemies of
Peace points a spotlight on the instigators, aggressors and funders of these
catastrophic wars as well as their motives. Featuring some of the best and most
knowledgeable scholars, journalists and activists on the subject, Enemies of
Peace offers insights and solutions not often expressed by the mainstream
media.

Unfortunately, the peace movement in our nation has deteriorated in recent years
and one of the goals of Enemies of Peace is to help empower activists to bring
the principles of peace, justice, cooperation and diplomacy back into politics,
international relations and the collective consciousness.

It is up to an informed populous to become active citizen journalists and spread
awareness of these issues on a grassroots level. With direct action, there is a
chance of putting a stop to the wars that our country is presently involved in
and those that are being planned by the military industrial complex and
individuals who truly are enemies of peace.

It is time to enter a new era of peace and cooperation across the planet if we
as a collective humanity are to survive.

The Myth of Free Will -Book
The Myth of Free Will -Book
Contribution: $25.00

THE MYTH OF FREE WILL expands on the powerful ideas in the first edition by
offering 50 more pages of quotes and short essays on free will. The contents are
divided into six chapters: 1) But It Seems So Real! 2) The Myth & Causality 3)
The Myth & Morality 4) The Myth & the Brain 5) The Myth & Naturalism 6) The Myth
& Me. There is a quiz, eight lessons, illustrations and a glossary. Contributors
include Thomas W. Clark, Daniel Wegner, Steven Pinker, Daniel Dennett, Sam
Harris, Richard Dawkins, Michael Shermer, William B. Provine, Paul Bloom,
Antonio Damasio, Francis Crick, Eric Kandel, Robert Sapolsky, Arnell Dowret,
Read Montague, Lee M. Silver, Matt Ridley, Ginger Campbell, V.S. Ramachandran,
Douglas Hofstadter, Kurt Vonnegut, Tamler Sommers, Mark Twain and Albert
Einstein. Author Susan Blackmore contributes a nice foreword, in which she says
we can live without free will, and do better, personally, morally and
practically. In all, 50 leading thinkers are represented. The book strives to
answer the question, Who is saying we don't have free will and what are their
credentials? It's mostly an anthology, definitely not a philosophy text. It was
written for a mainstream audience, for people who wonder: Do I have free will?
If not, why does it feel like I do? And it was written for people who understand
that free will is a myth (the choir) and want to share this understanding with
friends who might feel disturbed or intimidated by the subject
