Gandhi as a Model for the Arab Spring

Gandhi as a Model for the Arab Spring | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Gandhi proffered a new way to fight. "We will fight against their anger--not provoke it," Gandhi says in the movie. Non-violent non-cooperation is indeed fighting. As in all fighting, there is pain. Only rather than inflicting physical pain, Gandhi took others' anger and though his pain the others would feel pain. "Through our pain, they will see their injustice. This will call them pain." It prompts them to as questions about themselves--uncomfortable questions with even more unpleasant answers. This new way of fighting is not in the interest of governments. If their opponents do not turn to violence, governments such as the Egyptian will be inclined to actually tempt the non-violent protesters to violence because it is a government's currency. Ironically, governments are on firmer ground when their opponents turn violent because government is fundamentally a means of legitimately ordering societal violence. In dealing with non-violent civil disobedience, governments are not in control; rather, the protesters are acting at their choosing to provoke a reaction that will make the injustice transparent to all. This locus of control gives the non-violent the upper hand. Rather than joining government on its axis, non-violent civil disobedience fights not to punish for weaknesses that we all possess, but to change minds and hearts. It is thus active rather than passive.

Bahrain نبيل رجب torture in bahrain التعذيب في البحرين

The evil Khalifa regime is engaging in a torturous terror campaign against the Shia majority in Bahrain. The Khalifas rob their nation and privatize its wealth, they violate all norms of human rights against their citizens, and they imprison/torture/murder all people who dissent from their myopic, selfish vision! Please help in all ways possible!
