At the University of Tokyo on Nov. 17, 2018, an unusual assortment of Middle Eastern and Japanese scholars met over a conference on "nonviolence as strategy, and nonviolence as future".There is no magic wand that can turn an academic discussion into a solution to an increasingly violent world, except that, perhaps for the first time in history, a symbolic axis of nonviolence ran from Beirut to Tokyo on the strength of the nonviolent nature of the early days of the Arab revolutions.The birth of a Beirut-Tokyo axis of nonviolence is one symbolic response to the characteristic retreat of the human rights agenda globally, and the looming confrontations unchecked strong men are threatening the planet with, namely the return to a state of savage disorder which ended up in a devastating world war.
