When nations go to war, governments, civilians, and soldiers are negatively affected. According to activist and author David Swanson (War is a Lie, When the World Outlawed War) there is no logical reason for war—the suffering overwhelms any potential good. He’ll offer an overview of America’s most recent wars and the lessons that can be learned from them. Swanson, a 2015 Nobel Peace Prize nominee, will also offer practical ideas about what can be done to end war and give peace a real chance.
