Classifying and Understanding tactics in Activism

"Look, revolution takes many forms.  For some it is done at the ballot box, for others it involves a gun." 

"I really want to do something, but I'm not willing to yell at the city council, that's going too far."

"Everyone should just do whatever they are going to do and we'll all support it, but I'm sure we can all agree there should be no form of violence. Let's make a pact to only use non-violent tactics."

All activists seem to have an opinion about the use of violence in social change but few seem to give it much thought.  This series is meant to explore the topic and provide activist tools to develop and understand their own attitudes about violence.
