Today I was reading about the black American civil rights movement, and how Martin Luther King, Jr. encouraged activists to protest peacefully. They did sit-ins and peaceful marches. And many, many times, these peaceful, passive protesters were beaten, attacked with dogs, water-hosed, tear-gassed, and worse.

I don't think that power shifts without a fight.

But it is true that peaceful protest is more effective at evoking empathy for the victimized, especially if the force in power uses violence against them in response.

back in the 90's when I was still a child.And there was no al gore.Life was still good I would go to the mall with my friend.And we would play video games go to the toy store and get a pretzel and talk.Before our movie.There were 100 store's 95% full.now when you go there.There is maybe 5 stores Jcpenny's marshalls american eagle and radio shack and the movie theater.and then the food court.It will be interesting to see where this economy will be in another 20 years.I'm guessing there won't be one.
