Great people achieved great things through the philosophy of non violent resistance. Mahatma Gandhi is said to have been it's first advocate, MLK was another, Rosa Parks and others. Nothing will be achieved by what we are seeing in the US at the moment except more suffering and heartache. The violence we are seeing is just a huge, nasty toddler tantrum from an opportunistic mob. I feel so sorry for those protesting rightfully in the midst of this.
