Nonviolent protest doesn't work without there being at least some threat of violence behind it. Gandhi and the Indian protest were the last stop right before another full Sepoy rebellion that in the post WW2 cold war climate, Britain would not be able to stop. MLK's protest were the last stop before racial warfare in a U.S. still struggling to prevent the expansion of the USSR.

I'm not downplaying what either man has done. I'm just saying that when trying to get political change on the level both of those guys worked towards then widespread political violence and terror has to be at least a possibility.

It's so easy to say the only reason civil disobedience worked is because there was threat of violence behind it, because virtually any protest movement has the threat of violence behind it.  But that doesn't detract from the fact the civil disobedience in the '60s was THE biggest factor in the civil rights movement gaining real wins. 

You're not saying anything profound, and it seems like you are dismissive of the civil disobedience championed by MLK in a thread honoring him.  In other words, you're a real piece of shit.

Do you deny that the Soviet Union had an influential role in the government's response to the movement?

Here is documents straight from the government.

He'd be so proud at how far we've come. This truly represents the apex of civil rights.

I think we should all appreciate Martin Luther King Jr. All the people. Both sides. At the very least we should all thank him for the day off.
