Nonviolence is the Only way OWS will last ~ Google ~ Gene Sharp's Manual of Nonviolent protest ~ used in Burma by the Monks, In Tunisia, & in Tahrir Sq. Many Many of our fellow 99% are watching ~ in fact those police are part of the 99% & only with a Majority of the 99% will we succeed ~ keep to the higher ground of Nonviolence!!!!!!!

Non violence protesting by the masses will draw more awareness to all the flaws we have in our system. And everyday OWS is growing and gaining more coverage

YES! YES! YES!

A short, toothless, bespectacled man dressed only in a kind of oversized diaper DEFEATED THE BRITISH EMPIRE through nonviolence and his famous fasts.

True nonviolence is not for sissies: it is the path of the brave.

truly to be a Nonviolent Warrior is still being a Warrior!!!

Absolutely! Spartacus, who led the Revolt of the Slaves against the Roman Empire, is one of my heroes and WAS of course a true warrior. But I suspect that his Revolt failed because he was not as clever and introspective a warrior as the man in the oversized diaper. Gandhi's sense of timing and strategy was equal or superior to that of the greatest generals in history.

May the OWS Movement follow the Path of the Sacred Warrior!
