New Theory, Old Practice
Nonviolence And Quakers
BY GEORGE LAKEY
"Nonviolent action has three major applications: social change, social defense, and third party nonviolent intervention. Trailblazers, both Quaker and not, have shown that nonviolent action can be a tremendously powerful way of expressing our testimonies. Learning the differences and dynamics of the three applications, and therefore the possibilities of strategy, enables us to become even more the kind of practical idealists that made Quaker leaders in countless movements." - from the Author's Notes.
