I was blown away by this book, tip fro xmas reading. Basically to obtain real sustainble goals and changes the direct way is very really the best path. That's too me it's another way to put into great practice one of my mottos SIMPLE NOT EASY
Like Ceresole did not put it's goal in creating a great movement but was reaching for Peace... the same way in no more war we are going to get there in oblique paths
The book is called "Obliquity: Why our goals are best achieved indirectly" by John Kay. Below you can find an introduction into the basic ideas by the author himself:

so I have one question were as NO MORE WAR did we failed already? and more in general in what ever part of SCI or any other organizzation where did you fail?
when are we going to make a failure report of our team and of our movement?
From the last seminar from which I still want to write a report for you at one point, here some thoughts I had around different concepts and words surrounding non-violence. They will hopefully provide some food for thought, ideas or inspiration or you can use them as a starting point to draft your own definition against ;)
These are working definitions I use in seminars and for myself to gain deeper understandings - these all are work in progress and worthy of discussion, not fix and may not even represent my current opinion on them :)
What is nonviolence?
Any interaction which does not limit the possibilities of other beings without their free-willed consent.
Mohandas K. Ghandi developed a more elaborate concept of nonviolence based on three attitudes:
The dedication to not injuring any being.
The search and proclamation of truth and only truth while keeping in mind that one’s own truths may very well not be the truths of others or even be grounded in some form of objective truth.
Taking suffering onto one self instead of causing it to others. To Ghandi this was very important when trying to make others understand truths, as together with not wanting to hurt anyone, suffering can only be exerted onto yourself. Never upon others. View full article »
