All of these people attempted to utilize the concept of civil disobedience to fix an issue, without involving a fight. Even though, if one group of people believe in peaceful protest, the opposing party may not. Like Gandhi said, to accomplish this, one must prepare himself to take abuse. These people have shown the world that things can be fixed without a conflict. Sometimes making the best choice may feel wrong, but surpassing that, and taking a huge step to bring change, makes you a true hero.

Although racism has been the root for many horrible historic events such as: the Holocaust, Slavery and the Civil War, throughout the last couple decades, societies have learned to accept and embrace rather than annihilation.

Groups such as Neo-Nazi’s, who push for the re-establishment of the ideology of Nazism and praise the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler.
Yes the older generation may have seen some of the world wars and may have served in the military but they don’t really know about the current events and breaking news like the newer generation with phones and other technology does. If I were to ask my grandparents about what they think shaped our country i believe that they would say something to do with discrimination or the world wars.

However, in Steven perspective, he didn’t believe that should have been the solution to it because there could have been another way out.

From ancient times religion was the cause of many wars. It divides people is not along class lines, and by the way in which God you believe. The problem is not only that the various religions fight among themselves, but also there are many different currents in one religion. Also agnostics and atheists have a negative attitude to the fact that religious movements affect their lives. This applies to cases when the authorities go on about the religious communities and somehow distinguish members of religious communities from the general mass of people.

Non-violence is acting without physical confrontation. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the many people that solved situation without using violence.
