Frida Berrigan reflects on King: racism, militarism, extreme materialism

Saturday, April 10, 2021
7pm EDT

Frida Berrigan is the guest of the Cleveland Nonviolence Network to examine whether we are  heeding King’s warning about the triplets of evil: racism, extreme materialism, militarism.

 “When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered…A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth…A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

—“Beyond Vietnam” (April 4, 1967)
