The DuPage Peace through Justice Coalition invites you to...
JUST VIEWS: a Free & Open
Monthly Video/ Discussion Progra


Fri April 13, 7:20 pm, 2007 -- The Power of Nightmares


Tonight’s program examines the rise of the "politics of fear". The idea that the USA and other developed nations are being threatened by networks of hidden terrorists was called an illusion by BBC producers in 2004. Their documentary, The Power of Nightmares, explores how two groups, neo-conservatives inspired by Leo Strauss and radical Islamists like Osama Bin Laden, have helped to create this persisting potent fantasy. And how since the 1940s, from Joe McCarthy onward through the Cold War with the USSR, certain politicians have been using fear of imagined threats to gather and wield power. We’ll test these notions, and discuss coping.

These 2nd Friday evening Just Views programs start at 7:20 pm, are sponsored by the DuPage Peace through Justice Coalition and held at the Unitarian Church in Naperville IL at 4 S 535 Old Naperville Road (630/505-9408). Directions: Go (south of Route 88) to the corner of Naperville Road and Diehl. Proceed one block east along Diehl, then turn left/north. Enter the Unitarian Church ahead on your right.

Just Views (JV) shows great films on the big screen about vital peace-and-justice issues on 2nd Fridays monthly for free!  College and HS students are urged to join the adult public. View and then share views from various vantages with citizens and invited resource persons. Each night is a stimulating, informal, stand-alone experience.
