Does nonviolent civil disobedience


only work in a country with a free press?


 


Can a nonviolent movement


survive against an information censoring violent opponent?


 


Nonviolence is fine as long as it works

Yes. Sometimes.

NO! NO! NO! Never! But then at this point in history there is the Internet and it will allow the people to get the news as long as it stays out of government control.

Nonviolence seldom works except to gain sympathy of the public for the cause of the non-violent activist. Sympathy is in direct proportion to the violence used against the non-violent. Non-violence is ALWAYS a prelude to Violence.
