“Once I know that I can remember whenever I like, I forget.”
Violent attempted revolutions fail twice as often as non-violent ones. Resorting to violence means you are playing on the enemy’s turf, and he will probably eat you alive. Whereas no matter how many people the army kills, it cannot eliminate a determined non-violent opposition. It takes great patience and huge courage to follow that strategy, but that is actually how non-violent movements win.
