“Militarism has become the very fabric of our culture”–Blase Bonpane”

An outspoken critic of the American military interventions for decades, Blase 
Bonpane is a former Maryknoll priest who has been director of the Office of the 
Americas since 1983. In this archival video from 1991, Bonpane made the case for 
the U.S. as a militaristic society. It was originally shown on THE 90’s series on PBS 
and shot by Nancy Cain and Jody Procter. 

At 87, Bonpane is still fighting for peace through his work writing books and on KPFK 
radio in Los Angeles.

This video was shot 25 years ago, but it is startlingly relevant in 2016.
