  •  Not saying there have to be martyrs (0+ / 0-)

    I'm 54 - I've been through all of this already, I know the cost in human suffering our country has perpetrated. I don't need any lectures about it.

    Non-violence is a commitment that no matter what opposition comes, including violence, you will stand there and take it and witness it and keep going.  That commitment necessarily will include martyrs in any large struggle.  

    This is the largest struggle there is.  I hope the opposition isn't violent.  But if they are, it hurts our side and sets us back to be violent, too.  The only hope of winning is through conversion of hearts and minds until so many are on our side that the other side gives up.

    OWS is doing things exactly right.  I couldn't be more proud of them.  With any luck, I'll join them soon.

    Which side are you on?
