We seek to defeat the evil system, rather than individuals who happened to be caught up in the system. And I think that is a vital aspect with the method of non-violence. Violence defeats individuals, and so often fails to get back to the causal factor. The non-violence goes beneath the surface and seeks to remove the cause or basis which is the evil system itself.
