There was a lot wrong with MLK and Gandhi, people fail to talk about the fact that "violence" or what people perceive as "violent" is what caused the change
"Violence" and "Non-violence" are tactics
people leave out Chandrasekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh etc
The liberation movement in India failed. The British were not forced to quit India. Rather, they chose to transfer the territory from direct colonial rule to neocolonial rule
There was nothing wrong with Gandhi or MLK.
Not True, non-violence protects the state, a "revolution", if you believe in that, will never be won at the ballot box or through political party power
Then there's the 'next level' angle: That SHARP's / Antifa / etc use violence not even hardly against the system, but intsead mostly directed at everyday fellow citizens that dont agree with them...
and historically speaking that's the domain of OG Germany Nazi Brownshirt types.
