Bart Gruzalski's most recent book is On Gandhi. After 9/11, Bart lectured across the country about a nonviolent solution to terrorism. Bart writes poetry, teaches meditation and urges folks to check out Green presidential Candidate Jill Stein. Our current Duopoly is leading us to economic and ecological disaster.
