In these challenging times, we remember our need for courage, creativity, wisdom... and humour!
And in this age of rampant information, 'infotainment'
and blatant misinformation, we might add...
the knowledge, insight & intuition needed
to understand what is true and real.
We dedicate this website to the deepening of our
understanding of the true role and potential of humanity
to create the world we want to live in.
Through words, images and inspired actions, Dialogue seeks: to reveal the rapacious systems and schemes working against the interests of people and all living things on Earth; while also supporting and empowering, in print, online and in our communities, the 'imaginal cells' of our individual lives, to help us create and nurture the better world that we know is possible.
This website is being developed for the readers
and writers of Dialogue magazine – and for all who are seeking new
perspectives and deeper understanding about what is going on in our world… in
order to put their/our daily lives on a path that will help create a healthy
and harmonious future for our planet. We envision – and are working to create! – an interactive website that will
be updated frequently with posts from the readers/writers and new visitors to our web forum, in the form of: letters,
essays, cartoons, poetry, photos, art, alerts, events, blogs, comments, recommended reading (books, links & websites),
videos ~ and any other creative format you dream up!

Penny enjoys the Springtime Sun while Dialogue publisher Maurice King enjoys a good book, on his patio in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, BC.
As a volunteer-based alternative media, Dialogue features articles written and suggested by its readers across Canada and beyond.
Previously published from Quebec and Ontario, Dialogue magazine (since 2001) is compiled from the home of its publisher, Maurice King, and its editor, Janet Hicks King, in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, BC.
If you are in the neighbourhood, you are welcome to come by for a visit! [Tel. 250-758-9877; 6227 Groveland Dr., Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, BC]
Our goal is for this website to provide an
interactive resource to support and enhance the communication and empowerment
mission of Dialogue magazine.
There are many inspiring and informative sites on the Internet (our priority
list contains 37 so far!) and our goal is to develop our web location as a home
that brings together all the perspectives that 'truth-seeking troublemakers'*
and creative activists might need or want to know – or want others to
know - ideas that are
important for moving us in the directions we want to go!
[*i.e. thwarting the plans of those working
against the interests of the people and planet!]
Through the original articles and referenced material and links on the site, we hope to encourage: critical thinking, deep understanding, ‘radical imagination,’ heart-centered consciousness, creative activism and effective local strategies ~ and a sense of humour to see us through difficult times!
If you have any ideas and suggestions for special features (and links to other sites) that you would like to see included here, please email me (Janet) at: email@example.com
If you are a Dialogue columnist or writer, please email a biographical note and photo or favourite image, so we can build the page that will feature your contributions. Thanks!
While under construction, this website is being hosted as dialogue2.ca – but it will soon be moved back to www.dialogue.ca . Thank you for your patience – and even more, for your help – while we build and develop a new interactive website for Dialogue magazine. We hope you will join us in this exciting adventure by forwarding your suggestions, input or images.
Thank you, Janet

"The civilized have created the wretched, quite coldly and deliberately, and do not intend to change the status quo; are responsible for their slaughter and enslavement; rain down bombs on defenseless children whenever and wherever they decide that their "vital interests" are menaced, and think nothing of torturing a man to death: these people are not to be taken seriously when they speak of the 'sanctity' of human life, or the 'conscience' of the civilized world." - James Baldwin, Source: page 489 of COLLECTED ESSAYS (1998), from chapter one of "The Devil Finds Work" (orig. pub. 1976)
"Since world war two we've managed to create history's
first truly global empire. This has been done by the corporatocracy, which are
a few men and women who run our major corporations and in doing so also run the
U.S. government and many other governments around the world." - John
Perkins, 2005, author of the book titled 'Confessions of and Economic Hit Man'
In the struggle of Good against Evil, it's always the people who get killed. - Eduardo Galeano
"It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely." - Leo Buscaglia, author and university professor (1924-1998)
