Standing Rock Valor and King’s 2nd Principle of Nonviolence

The idea with nonviolence social action is is to change peoples’ minds about validity of an unjust law by taking a principled stand for justice, fueled by love, putting your bodies in harm’s way if necessary, to bring forth justice. The underlying principle is Love – and the people taking actions of “civil” disobedience are to act from a place of love…connected to the Divine Source by whatever name or none… whatever their opponent does. This takes a good deal of self-discipline, training and community-building.
