Nagler on Egypt’s nonviolent revolution

In this new interview, Michael Nagler, president of the Metta Center for Nonviolence Education, offers his thoughts on the nonviolent movement that has just toppled Hosni Mubarak in Egypt after 30 years of dictatorial rule.

Nagler wisely argues that to solidify this nonviolent victory, the positive energy in Egypt must now be channeled into constructive work focused on building an authentic democracy and addressing the widespread poverty that plagues the country.
