I have been doing politics for 50 years and I now see the futility of any more peaceful effort. As Gandhi said, "The world is not entirely governed by logic. Life itself involves some kind of violence and we have to choose the path of least violence." That "path of least violence" is now gone. Unless there is "divine intervention," I believe we will all be fighting for our lives by April 2012-2013. "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
