[P]assive resistance is… obtained by self-suffering, self-purification. Violence ever fails.
Passive resistance is always moral; never cruel. And any activity which fails in this test … is undoubtedly not passive resistance.
I’m continually impressed by Gandhi’s writings and an finding much solace there. Yes, as a Hindu his aims and understandings about liberation may differ but it is the self same commitment to living life by the rule of universal love and sympathy.
