    eBook Nonviolence eBook ✓ Ý stroyki.pro nonviolence free, Nonviolence Kindle One of history's greatest lessons is that once the state embraces a religion the nature of that religion changes radically It loses its nonviolent component and becomes a force for war rather than peace The state must make war because without war it would have to drop its power politics and renege on its mission to seek advantage over other nations enhancing

    eBook Nonviolence eBook ✓ Ý stroyki.pro nonviolence free, Nonviolence KindleI never expected this book to be such a disappointment I noticed so many inaccuracies that I couldn't trust any of the information about subjects that I knew nothing about yet Many claims were made without any type of source Also the simplistic definition of zen at its mentioning in the same breath as Zionism felt like a true disaster to meOppressor violence is spoken about as if it just is It is already there The reaction of the oppressed against this oppressor violence that's what

    eBook Nonviolence eBook ✓ Ý stroyki.pro nonviolence free, Nonviolence KindleMark Kurlansky is an excellent writer He makes a very strong case for nonviolence He sees nonviolence as a political tactic and openly uestions those cases in history that have been routinely touted as examples of regimes which would be impervious to a Ghandi like resistance He singles out the Nazi's and the slave owning southern states of America as deserving special consideration because it is the accepted wisdom that nonviolence would have been ineffective in these two cases There are of course limits to what counter factual histories can tell us if indeed they can tell us anything but despite Kurlansky's arguments I find myself doubting the idea of countering Nazi atrocities with nonviolenceNonviolence can be an effective tactic but two conditions need to be met The world has to be watching and someone somewhere h

    eBook Nonviolence eBook ✓ Ý stroyki.pro nonviolence free, Nonviolence KindleA lovely little book with a nice organizational conceit a list of lessons The author makes arguments that will be impossible to disagree with even if they are hard to put into practice Others are less obvious and might make some readers uestion the assertions made But that's good I found myself uestioning some assumptions I had labored under for some time eg was WWII really a good or even necessary war? The folks who will find this book most useful are those of us who are drawn to the idea of nonviolence and have a strong conviction about its rightness but who still need some intellectual convincing themselves and the means with which to convince others to support this conviction Those who are highly skeptical of nonviolence may not be persuaded by such a thin tome although it will at least raise some interesting u

    eBook Nonviolence eBook ✓ Ý stroyki.pro nonviolence free, Nonviolence KindleGreat introduction to the concept of non violence note not the same as pacifism and shows some great examples where non violence a concept so foreign to our natural inclination that the words for it in every language are only the negative of violence rather than a positive term has changed societies for the better Very inspirational read Humanity can do better And as the author cites William Penn as saying somebody must begin it We can all begin it and we can all begin it in our lives today Do we have the courage to do so?
