: Non-violence is about TACTICS and RESOLVE, not morality.
Agreed entirely. It is suicide to be violent at the wrong moment. Violence is not pretty but it happens.
I might add that I really liked the point that communism is about translating ethics into social relations, that is a great point but I think there are those here that would disagree and blast you for not adhearing to the sacred word of Marx-Lenin-Trotsky-Mao, for it is written that we know class morality only and all that is important is the holy means of production.
Ignore them and perhaps they'll fossilise like the other dinosaurs.
