As Martin Luther King said: ‘The biggest threat to humanity is not the evil of the bad people. It is the passivity of the good ones.’ Most people belong to the good ones, it is time for them to speak up and take action.

Destructive tendencies, such as terrorist attacks on innocent civilians & the reactions of diverse EU politicians, who claim we are at war. A rising number of refugees, around 60 million worldwide – most of them in neighboring countries, under harrowing conditions – and the reactions of diverse EU politicians, who threaten to close the borders of nations, who betray the European dream of peace with neoliberal politics. The fear and hatred that power-hungry populists spit out in one-liners and that feeds on itself.

These trends need to be countered by a vision of peace and progress. JES! offers such a vision and at least makes one rethink their biases. Studio nonfiXe wants to make the book accessible for all by spreading a free pdf containing the whole content.
