Abstract

There are four ways in which one can deal with an injustice: (a) One can accept it without protest; (b) One can seek to avoid it; (c) One can resist the injustice non-violently; (d) One can resist by violence. To use violence is to increase injustice. To accept it is to perpetuate it. To avoid it is impossible. To resist by intelligent means and with an attitude of mutual responsibility and respect … much the better choice, since attitudes simply cannot be challenged by avoidance, by complete or continuous acceptance, or by stupidity and violence.
