Anti-war icon David Dellinger died yesterday. Jacob recounts his meeting with Dellinger a few years ago at Yale. As Ron Jacobs writes: this man had devoted his entire adult life to opposing imperialism and the wars that system demands without ever even throwing a brick at a cop. Like the Berrigan brothers and Martin Luther King, Jr., his commitment to nonviolence was total. At the same time, he understood that pacifism was not passivism.
