There is an alternative to violence.

We  may think of this alternative as a method of nonviolence, of non-violent resistance, for you see it is possible to achieve justice through non-violence. This method has been made famous in our generation by the work of Mohandas K. Gandhi who lived in India not many years ago, and who used this method to free his people from the political domination, the economic exploitation and humiliation inflicted upon them by Britain. And he, I imagine proved more than anybody else in the modern world that this can be an effective method, in seeking justice, in seeking to break loose from oppression.
