Columnists, Writers & Artists in Dialogue

[This section is still being compiled! Thank you for your patience.]

In every edition of Dialogue magazine, dozens of writers express their perspectives and share their insights about the state of our world and their suggestions for a better future.

We currently have dozens of columnists and writers from across Canada, and periodically from the U.S., Ireland, Lithuania, German, Sweden.

This page offers a list of Columnists and frequent writers, with links to their pages (which we are in the process of creating) - where you will find links to their articles. In time, we anticipate a short biographical note about each contributor, and, if they so choose, an active blog from each of them.

Below is also a list (still being compiled) of artists who have been featured in recent editions of the magazine.

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
George Orwell

"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)
