    Interesting. I have to side with Ted Rall — A crowd of non-violent protesters, even a huge one (think back to the 2003 protest against the Iraq war) will not change the policies of a national government or a large corporation. Threat of harm will. Governments and corporations are quite coldly logical in that way. They lack the human qualities which respond to love- they are quite simply incapable of caring.

    This is not unlike an individual’s negotiation with a corporation over, lets say, salary. Appeals to doing the right thing are useless. Threatening to quit works (Assuming that it would be costly to train a replacement).

    The debate is a cogent one. Your first speaker was far off the mark in saying that it is not.

    The question was “Can a non-violent social movement remain non-violent in the face of a repressive empire?” I think it should have been “… in the face of a repressive government and media?”

    My answer would be not only can it not remain non-violent but it cannot succeed violently or non-violently. All it is good for is letting off steam as a non-violent movement. With violence, it only creates more violence by the repressive government, which has better weapons.

    In other words, I am a pessimist. I see no hope for restoration of our Constitution, weak document that it is. Our Bill of Rights has been destroyed. We do not even have a Magna Carta as do the British. Once precedents have been legitimated through acceptance by the branches of our government, congress, the Supreme Court, which are supposed to check the usurpations of the executive branch, of the President, there is no way of undoing that without criminalizing the President and his associates. We have seen that in the case of the GW Bush administration, its criminal behavior with respect to torure, with respect to aggressive warfare, have not led to punishment. The criminal behavior of the Obama administration will go unpunished as well

    The matter is closed. We are no longer a republic with a limited government and individual rights. That day is gone as it was when Julius Caesar took over the Roman Senate.
