The news talk about refugees or migrants all the time but miss the important point. Perceived (or real?) threat for Europeans is not so much the newcomers taking locals’ jobs – I think deep inside many feel that whoever is better suited for the job should have it, that’s fair. The threat is that the migrants or refugees probably came from places where violence, crime and human rights abuse were the norm. They might hate that situation themselves yet this is what they used to. Is there a chance that they won’t be able to leave this terrible baggage behind and will want to discriminate or even kill?

This is worse than terrorists explosives if that can happen.

Nonviolence … does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent, but to win his friendship and understanding. The nonviolent resister must often express his protest through noncooperatoin or boycotts, but he realizes that these are not ends themselves; they are merely means to awaken a sense of moral shame in the opponent. The end is redemption and reconciliation. The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, while the aftermath of violence is tragic bitterness.

Don’t be afraid of the mob. Don’t be affraid of ones who punch if you say something they don’t like. Be honest. Be thoughtful. Be provocative if you think it is needed.

People who punch because you don’t want to pretend that you like their imaginary friend are the worst on this planet.
