A Question for the Day
Paul Marks argues that what’s needed in Burma (Myanmar) is some good-old fashioned armed revolt. Andrew Sullivan excerpts the money quote. As someone who has studied (with awe and respect) America’s birthing revolution, I’m hard-pressed to disagree with Marks, though his argument makes me wonder, more than ever, exactly what it was that made Gandhi’s unarmed resistance so remarkably powerful and effective. Why is it so difficult to replicate Gandhi’s example elsewhere?
