“If the U.S. government system can only go to war through an artificial event, then this leads to a startling conclusion: the days of war itself are numbered. If only a highly-charged emotive stimulus will get us to permit war, then that means war is naturally fake. The masters of war show us this themselves. They dig their own graves.”
—Slingshot to the Juggernaut
from Chapter 19: “Revolution Means a Spiritual Solution to a Spiritual Problem”


“Visualize a new kind of country, one that is about empowering its citizens and the citizens of the world rather than intimidating them. Imagine the United States as a country best at figuring out how to meet the needs of all parties in a conflict. Instead of being number one at war, we become number one at fostering peace.”

—From Opening Invocation to the Slingshot to the Juggernaut









Slingshot to the Juggernaut
National Tour Info!



We want to book fun, politically empowering, spiritually enriching, democratic events in which Sander will facilitate a discussion and speak about the subjects in his new book, Slingshot to the Juggernaut.

Itinerary
 
Sander will speak about the book, read it, sign it, answer questions, sing songs about it, listen to people share about their lives. At some gigs, where appropriate, he will lead a group meditation or visualization for world peace. Sander will also be traveling with an acoustic guitar, playing a few of his new indie punk/folk tunes.

Here is a piece of prose that describes Sander, and his book:

Sander Hicks, founder of Soft Skull Press, and star of indie doc "Horns and Halos" is the author of the new "Slingshot to the Juggernaut: Total Resistance to the Death Machine Means Complete Love of the Truth."

It's a book about peace and nonviolence through deep investigative journalism about 9/11. Hicks finds the liberating effects of examining political corruption in the USA.

Sander has personally confronted Dick Cheney, Rudy Giuliani, Eliot Spitzer, the Shreveport FBI, and perpetrators of the anthrax cover-up. The book has a positive second half, in which Hicks discovers Zen, sobriety, Gandhi, the historical Jesus, and the Truth Party as a way out of a time of secrecy and violence.

For a longer version of the Sander biography, may we recommend the version written by the good people of Bloomington, Indiana.

Here are some leading quotes from the book:
