Smart People Learn From Smart People

Without question, Gandhi is one of the most revered figures in history. Almost viewed as a saint in India, his legacy has become one of peaceful resistance to injustice. Gandhi began his activism in South Africa in the early 1900s after seeing the way he and other minorities were treated by racial class systems instituted by the British. After returning to India, he began to practice an ascetic lifestyle by dressing in the traditional garb of the Hindu faith — a homespun loincloth and shawl made from Indian cotton. Having firmly decided to fight the British rule of his beloved country, Gandhi instigated one demonstration after another, spending significant time in jail and whipping up strong support from his fellow countrymen. After the British finally left in 1947, Gandhi continued to work toward peace between Muslims and Hindus until he was shot to death in 1948 by a Hindu fundamentalist.

Gandhi’s example far outlived him, however, and eventually inspired one very important man: Martin Luther King Jr. MLK went on to radically change the way the US treats people of color using this very same methodology of nonviolent resistance.

As we all know, Gandhi changed the course of Indian and British history by forcing the imperialistic nation to leave. Using a philosophy of love, Gandhi ousted one of the most powerful countries in history, shocking the world. A new example was set.

Success leaves clues.

MLK’s Adoption of Gandhi’s Movement

With a precedent made, it was no wonder that oppressed peoples in America came to know Gandhi’s teachings and the power they held. With blacks held down by institutional racist policies and practices, it didn’t take MLK long to realize it was the ultimate weapon to fight against the system of segregation that was so entrenched in America. Needless, to say, he was triumphant.

MLK had this to say about the Gandhian methodology:

“In the summer of 1956 the name of Mahatma Gandhi was well-known in Montgomery. People who had never heard of the little brown saint of India were now saying his name with an air of familiarity. Nonviolent resistance had emerged as the technique of the movement, while love stood as the regulating ideal. In other words, Christ furnished the spirit and the motivation while Gandhi furnished the method.”

The Worldwide Effect on Civil Rights

History is replete with violence and examples of war’s catastrophic destruction across the globe. Yet perhaps we can take solace in the fact that some of the biggest ‘wins’ of the 21st century came not from the size or destructive power of weapons, but the human spirit. Because of the examples of these great men, nonviolence has become the tool used by those who wish to affect positive change in a world that so desperately needs it. A tool that, without a shadow of a doubt, is both spiritually righteous and morally sound.

Moreover, statements of a nonviolent doctrine are in each of the major world religions, from Buddhist prohibitions on taking life to Taoism’s invocations of water wearing away rock, to Mohammed’s ban on violence in his model society at Mecca, to Moses’ “Thou shalt not kill”, Jesus’ “Turn the other cheek.” and of course, the Hindu principle of ‘ahimsa’ or ‘doing no harm’.

THE GOLDEN RULE

As we move forward as a species and a people, we may find the power of love to transform the world is limitless. Certainly a small group’s ability to control a much larger group can only happen when the latter accepts it — and so ultimately they can shake it off when they so choose.
