    Mahatma Ghandi - a take you likely haven't seen before

    Mahatma Gandhi was not qutie the non-violent man we've been lead to believe. He preached violence when you have no other choice or when you lacked the courage to be non violent. Yet he was firmly against cowardice.

    It's quite an interesting read.

    What is the credibility of this source? This seems against anything I've ever read...

    I don't know the credibility. But I checked on google and these quotes keep coming up so I'm guessing this is accurate.

    It makes a lot of sense though. He was a pacifist, not a coward.

    Amazing isn't it though. The difference between pacifism and cowardice. So many of our lovable leftists claim to be pacifists but they're really just cowards.

    I only glanced at someone else's post to get the spelling, and it felt right when I typed it, so whatever.

    I don't get it, it all makes perfect sense to me. Maybe you should try reading it properly, Smeg.

    There you go again with the unnessary insults. One can only hope you don't do that in public.

    LOL, so that counts as an insult now? You sure like that martyr thing.

    Gandhi was the champion of nonviolence to the end. But yes, he taught that when you do not have the choice of pursuing nonviolence, then you should defend yourself and justice with all means available to you, even violent ones.

    Those quotes appear in other books by him (and compilations of his statements). You can go to amazon.com and use the "search inside this book" function to find a few of them.

    Smeg taking potshots at "libruls" yet again and then complaining about unneeded insults is pretty f****ng funny.

    I think Smeg read all of three words per paragraph in those articles. It sounds exactly like the Gandhi I read about.

    Ahh. That's what I was waiting for. A critique of the character of people you have never met outside the internet.

    And in the spirit of this thread; takes one to know one!

    According to a BBC documentary i have seen in the past there are other sides to the man as well, more darker sides. The thing he did with the naked 12 year old little girls for instance.
