armentPRESENTATIONS: Three Options

economicsThe Golden Rule Society

goldenrule This presentation is dedicated to discussions on the economic and political future of humanity. As in the past, our society is evolving, indeed, very quickly. How do we organize? Are capitalism and socialism giving way to a new system? Can the ancient wisdom of the Golden Rule be at the center of a new paradigm? “The Economics of Peace: Freedom, the Golden Rule, and the Broadening of Prosperity” is only a starting point. From the Arab Spring to the Occupy and Tea Party movements, the “What now?” solution to economic disparity and power politics has largely been unarticulated. This Facebook site will feature excerpts from the book on how the Golden Rule ethic and a technology-driven global consciousness are causing epic shifts in our economic and governing systems. Yet the book is not the final word on these lofty and important matters. What do you think? How does the Golden Rule or other ethical memes play in our future? Here is a starting point for determining our future.


elementsThe Virtuoso of Peace

Thirty nonviolent methods are brought to life with heart-wrenching and inspiring stories of how seemingly intractable conflicts were transformed into conditions free from the ravages of violence. An important role of storytelling is to convey essential knowledge from one generation to another, and now nonviolence has a storyteller with the ability to engage, entertain, and inspire. Companion presentation to "The Elements of Peace: How Nonviolence Works."



International Cities of Peace

There are many new avenues to work for peace in our homes, communities, and our nations. International Cities of Peace is an association of cities of peace that Arment founded in 2009. These cities, counties and communities around the world have self-defined their citizenry through official Proclamations or grassroots efforts as cities of peace. Arment blends the extensive and inspiring work of this global nonprofit with other aspects of peacemaking, including the case studies in "The Elements of Peace: How Nonviolence Works."
