This requires exercising our imaginations, investing in peace education, and rethinking global economic and security systems. Only then will we defeat the evil triplets, “shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society,” and foster positive, sustainable peace.

International Peace Bureau Statement: A Prophetic Voice for Our Time – Honoring MLK Jr’s’ April 4, 1967 “Beyond Vietnam, Breaking the Silence” Speech

Fifty years ago, on April 4, 1967, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a speech which rings across the decades. It is among the most remarkable expressions of prophetic moral, intellectual and spiritual courage. In his speech, King broke ranks with pragmatic critics within the U.S. Civil Rights movement who feared the political blowback of denouncing President Johnson’s catastrophic war in Indochina, and named the greatest obstacles to freedom in the United States – and the West: the triple evils of racism, militarism and extreme materialism. Like the wisdom of the Prophets of old, King’s words and call for a “revolution of values” are as incisive and inspiring today as they were five decades ago.
