Time to Abolish NATO

Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire discusses why it is time to abolish NATO and dismantle the military-industrial complex that is eroding freedom worldwide. As war crimes by the U.S./UK/NATO axis expand into civil conflicts that could be handled diplomatically, says Maguire, militarism becomes an impediment to human rights and democracy.

Militarizing our societies, she notes, makes violence acceptable; while this is the norm promoted by governments, corporations and media, it is a norm that must be strategically opposed by those who seek a world of peace. This ideological challenge, created by powerful elites that profit from war, is most pronounced in the fraudulent “humanitarian wars” which epitomize the aberration of militarism that must be abolished.
