    Nonviolence is about SCALE and PARTICIPATION. The reason direct and sometimes violent action is necessary now is the lack of OUTRAGE on the part of the dulled masses. Examine the difference in relative public outcry of the Exxon Valdez tragedy versus the lackluster grumble of the BP disaster. As the crowds diminish, the volume has to be turned up..

    It’s hard to argue with Peter Geiderioos in ‘How non violence protects the state’. This guy makes sence in a way I’ve not heard anyone in a long time.

    Gelderloos is awesome! He presents a very insightful argument and describes the way non-violence is another tool used to pacify, subdue, and co-opt movements. He definitely makes a great argument and outlines his thesis by noting that non-violence can be used effectively as long as many other options, strategies, and tactics are used hand in hand with certain non-violent tactics.

    Peter: brilliant! The example of Gandhi as being the least threatening of resistance leaders is classic. People in such positions, including M. L. King (and there are many examples throughout history) can only exist when there is a large number of others supporting the leader. King didn’t do it alone and there was much violence before the civil rights movement became successful. There is much literature, old and contemporary, to be read on this subject.
    Bring down the gangstas!

    very good explanation about the problem with the non-violence rhetoric!!

    i think one thing should be said. people are using ghandi as an exemplar for the right way to resist and they identify him with THE non-violent resistance, yet this is a distorted picture of ghandi’s ideas. gandhi wasnt a pacifist, he did said that non violence is a better option if its possible but for him it was a coward and manipulative rhetoric to speak about non violent as a must in a world where those in power use it to suppress and torture all the rest. i think that part of the argument that is used to refute the non-violence bullshit should include point about the fictitious ghandi who’s an invention of hollywood and bunch of hippies. gandhi is actually on our side of this debate.

    Norman finkelstein stress this point alot in his speeches, about what gandhi really said and the way people depict him

  • [...] Even so, I want to start asking questions about view on violence and non-violence.  Let’s start in semi-familiar territory.  That popular underground, the anarchist thought/s on the subject.  Being from The Evergreen State College, the first three words associated with my school are: hippie, tree-huggers/environmental terroists, and anarchists [you can see the linear progression, no?].  And sometimes homo haven [not enough sadly].  Now while there’s sure to be many anarchist views on violence, I ran into this video that seems to be part of a web radio/news series.  It’s called “the resistance is blowing up.” [...]
