By this article, I wish to declare, once more, my absolute devotion to non-violence and peace.


Nonviolence is the personal practice of being harmless to self and others under every condition. It comes from the belief that hurting people, animals or the environment is unnecessary to achieve an outcome and refers to a general philosophy of abstention from violence based on moral, religious or spiritual principles. [wiki]


If violence is answered by violence, the result is a physical struggle. Now, a physical struggle inevitably arouses in the minds of those directly and even indirectly concerned in it emotions of hatred, fear, rage and resentment. In the heat of conflict all scruples are thrown to the winds, and all the habits of forbearance and humaneness, slowly and laboriously formed during generations of civilised living, are forgotten. Nothing matters any more except victory. And when at last victory comes to one or other of the parties, this final outcome of physical struggle bears no necessary relation to the rights and wrongs of the case: nor in most cases, does it provide any lasting settlement to the dispute”.

(Huxley, 1938. p. 139)


According to my opinion, the problems within a Nation can be resolved exclusively and peacefully by legitimate politics. And any Nation's problems with regard to it's international relationships can be resolved exclusively and peacefully by legitimately regulating the content and the intensity of the bilateral relationships with each and every other Nation.


The economically and/or militarily “strong” Nations have contributed in forming this current world of violence, unjustice, fear, poverty and unfreedom. Those Nations, instead of even thinking to pose threats against innocent and peaceful activists and/or new politicians, they should rush to pave the way for those activists and new politicians in order to clear, peacefully, all the mess the “strong” Nations have caused with their choices and/or their negligence.


The peaceful and legitimate, activists and new politicians, should be left safe and sound, in order to contribute to the peaceful evolution of our troubled world, towards peace, freedom, friendship and frugal prosperity.
