Nonviolent resistance — now more than ever

“We must learn that passively to accept an unjust system is to cooperate with that system, and thereby to become a participant in its evil.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Amazing things are happening today, but still few are paying attention. This is a travesty, because the importance of any and all resistance to the state, any state, if embraced, can only lead to a freer world. This country and the world, have fallen into slavery voluntarily, and therefore have accepted the status quo that is serfdom, instead of clinging to and supporting all manner of dissent as necessary for the survival of man. This truth is avoided by most in order to supposedly get along without conflict, but the conflict only grows in this environment of passivity. When the conflict grows due to the masses lack of courage and indifference, the way is cleared for the destruction of freedom.
Gary D. Barnett

“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”

Frederick Douglass
