Author David Swanson at ArtRage
April 25, 2016 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Anti-war organizer, Author of War is a Lie and blogger David Swanson will speak in Syracuse to celebrate the publication of the second edition of his book, War is a Lie. His goal is to abolish the institution of war.
War Is A Lie is a thorough refutation of every major argument used to justify wars, drawing on evidence from numerous past wars, with a focus on those that have been most widely defended as just and good. This is a handbook of sorts, an engaging, always informative manual that can be used to debunk future lies before the wars they’re deployed to justify have any chance to begin.
David is an extraordinarily energetic and engaging speaker. He is the host of Talk Nation Radio, the author of three other books on ending war, the campaign coordinator of Roots Action (www.rootsaction.org) and is on the coordinating committee of World Beyond War (www.worldbeyondwar.org).
