American Militarism and Alternatives to War: A Comparative Analysis of Pragmatic and Principled Nonviolence

January 2006

Are there ways to defend oneself, resist aggression, and confront a military invasion or brutal dictatorship that are more humane and effective than violence? In this paper, I argue that an alternative does exist – in what is commonly referred to as nonviolence – and explain in layman’s terms what it is and how it works. In the last chapter, I examine how nonviolence was successfully employed by everyday people against the Nazis during World War II in several different countries, since many consider that to be the last “just war.”
