The post-gandhian age, but the persistence of non-violent tactics…

July 21st, 2018 · No Comments

We have often been critical of gandhi here, and noted that modern democratic revolutions were often violent affairs: revolutionary wars. That is not to propose violent tactics. Violence is too often counterproductive to be a real option. And the legacy of bolshevism turned millions into ‘gandhians’, supposedly.
We should navigate the issue dialectically, with an eye on history, In any case, violence on the issue of meat eating would seem grotesque. But those who might disagree are rising to the fore…
In any case we need to recall the histories of the struggle for freedom and not kowtow to sanctimonious gandhi fakes.

We have critiqued gandhi here many times. The case of mlk and the civil rights movement was exceptional. We should not infer that non-violence is the only way to social change. The american revolution and the birth of democracy were not non-violent. The abolition of slavery in the us was especially violent.
