Would-be bully gets #KOKESHED (nonviolent communication in action)

Ever been threatened to a fight by someone who outweighs you by about sixty pounds of muscle? It doesn’t happen to me often, but last Friday, it happened in Linden, NJ with a former cop and soldier who didn’t like me “disrespecting the military.” My greatest hits always surprise me (I didn’t think the Jefferson Dance Party video would do very well) but this one seems to be going at least a little viral. People want to cheer for brains defeating brawn. Let’s just hope that this holds true on a bigger scale because we have much more work to do! Speaking of which, we’ve got less than two months left on The American Campfire Freedom Tour. This weekend is a big one with stops in Philly, DC (area), and Baltimore. Please check out our schedule for details and share this video:

For those of you who want to learn more about the technique I used in this video, please check out the book Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg. It’s just 200 pages and will improve all of your relationships, especially those with angry people!
