Without the Black Panthers and the Black Muslim movement, Dr. King's peaceful alternative would have been laughed at. The same holds true for Ghandi's peaceful protests as a counterpart to violent insurgency in India.

Dr. King and Ghandi may have been the ultimate examples of non-violence, but they were the other side of the coin, totally co-dependent on the threat of violence by their counterparts for their success.

With all due respect John. This part of the thread should be moved don't you think? I would love to dicuss this with you if Jun decides to move or if you opened up a thread on the topic.

For now...I humbly ask you to reread what you wrote and ask you what logical fallacy you represented...
