At the root of restorative justice: Daily Metta Weekend Video

In this talk about Search for a Nonviolent Future, Michael Nagler gives some examples to show that human beings cannot function equally in a system that maintains punishment as a way to treat each other. Anytime we break human beings into groups like this, we make violence inevitable. When we go beyond those roles and search for a common humanity, we make nonviolence possible.
