One Two Punch

from 300.00

There were two kinds of nonviolent training. Some training was in classic Gandhian nonviolence, learning why (and to some degree, how) to peacefully face and defuse hatred and violence with courage and compassion.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The main purpose of training in philosophical nonviolence was to shape the individual person's attitude and mental response to crises and violence.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On the other hand, the main purpose of training in tactical nonniolence was to learn the practical techniques of participating in, organizing, and leading, nonviolent direct action demonstrations, — and how to protect yourself from being maimed or killed while doing so.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

These two kinds of training were not mutually exclusive, nor were they in opposition to each other,  — frequently they were combined.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

But a given training session usually emphasized one or the other.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In the early years of the Freedom Movement, the late 50s and early 60s, philosophic training predominated, but by 1963 most of the training was tactical rather than philosophical.
