intro’d to Jamila via her 2015 tedtalklive – The secret to effective nonviolent resistance
the idea that non violent struggle is equiv to street protest is a real problem
if violence is the only choice.. people will use it
non violence works by… identifying the institutions that an opponent needs to survive and then denying those sources of power..
and/or.. giving everyone.. something else to do.. no?
isolated actions do very little if not part of a bigger strategy
it’s time we challenge the way we think about conflict.. let’s
violence as a tool of conflict could be…abandoned.. replaced w weapons that are more effective..
greatest hope for humanity lies not in condemning violence .. but in making violence obsolete
