I could go on, but the point: If you accept what you believe as true, then may I suggest that you talk to your enemies. At some point, you may arrive at bits and pieces of truth, but to try to put it right would be like trying to reconstruct a cherry pie that had fallen on the floor.

Very TRUE in the sense that the history is ALWAYS written by the Victorious.
First, the world revolution is and will be nonviolent. Most of the major revolutions in world history have been physically violent in nature, involving militancy and the organized use of arms -- hence "world revolution" may ring of violent, armed social upheaval. This revolution, however, will be categorically nonviolent in nature. It will not be necessary to be a pure pacifist in one's personal ideological orientation. World revolutionaries will not have to believe in the absolute immorality or illigitimacy of violence as a means to achieve perceived moral ends, in either domain of personal affairs or social change. But they will commit, in the arena of actual action and activity, to the renunciation of physical force, coercion or violence as a weapon or tactic in any activity connected to the world revolution. The world revolution aims to achieve a nonviolent, peaceful world -- and it will not use or advocate violence as a means to this end. The world revolution has been inspired at its origins by the spirits and moral examples of M. K. Gandhi and M. L. King, Jr., and, for one thing, it would be a gross disrespect to them, the foremost advocates of nonviolence in modern history, to diverge from this cardinal value which they lived, fought and died for.
Betty Reardon, in one of her books on peace education, delineated three levels of social change activity:
1. Reform: changing existing practices within existing structures and institutions
2. Reconstruction: changing and redesigning the social structures and institutions themselves
3. Transformation: multi-level change, including the domain of human values, attitudes, and beliefs
The world revolution is intended to effect progressive social change at all three levels: reform, reconstruction, and transformation.
How will it do this? The basic plan is this. The world revolution will build upon the work of already existing movements, programs, organizations and institutions throughout the world that are involved in progressive social change efforts (at all three levels of the Reardon scheme). The role of the world revolution in relation to the existing projects will be multifold. Listed here are some of the basics, as initially conceived:
a. Attempt to unify, consolidate and coordinate the various existing programs into a larger collective movement of much greater social, political and cultural force.
b. Consolidate an initial world revolutionary constituency -- with sufficient numbers of people so as to be able to influence the values of the rest of the populace as well as to effect national opinion and policy.
c. Enhance the efficacy of existing programs by (a) providing a vast, efficient communication network and activist infrastructure for the sharing of information, ideas, and tactics, and by (b) monitoring the most effective strategies and social change methods/programs and disseminating this information to others in the same field.
d. Bring the work of researchers and scholars together with the work of activists, together with the work of policy-advocates and policy-makers, together with the work of educators, together with the work of writers and authors, etc. -- so that the power and efficacy of each is considerably enhanced.
e. Provide a holistic, comprehensive conceptual framework and context for various programs of social activism.
