My friends at The Metta Center, which focuses on nonviolence education, sent me a holiday card. The card is more like a Mahatma Gandhi action figure. Gandi was, of course, a cornerstone of the peaceful action which resulted in India’s independence from Britain in 1947.
The cutout cards are produced by the Unemployed Philosophers’ Guild and they stand up on four legs. There are philosophers, writers, activists, scientists, composers, and many others. The (Unemployed) Philosophers’ Guild sells its cards and other products online. (The online store was broken when I tried it today, but they’re also sold in many stores.) It’s worth a visit to see the promotional videos. Cute.
