The story of Antoinette Tuff, a bookkeeper who was filling in at the front desk of an Atlanta Suburban elementary school of about 800 students on Aug. 20, 2013, when a 20 year old gunman brandishing an AK-47 with 500 rounds of ammunition in his back pack barged into the office. Ms.Tuff managed to stay cool and using compassion and empathy, she talked the gunman into surrendering to police. In part, what Antoinette Tuff employed was a kind of nonviolent communication that weve covered before on Peace Talks Radio. We also re-visit one of those conversations with NVC expert Jorge Rubio.

This program responds to a criticism that D@W focuses too much on the transition from capitalist firms to worker-coop firms with too little attention paid to the larger social changes needed to get beyond capitalism. Discussion focuses on the broader social changes needed to sustain a worker-coop based economy including a government that administers an economy-wide democratic sharing of profits and resources among the worker-coop enterprises.
