    Yes. They are good, and they should be kept up. The example you provided of the conduct of MLK is clear evidence that this stuff works.

    From what I see the balaclava/baseball bat people are a very small minority
    I've never said anything otherwise.

    There's always going to be someone who uses groups like this for a boost to do what they want, it's a matter of if that's productive to the group or not. But as I've said the police have been given more and more power, so a lot of "Look at what this leftist group did" comes off as "Really?" Just look at the pictures people take of reporters and police taking pictures of one knocked over trash can to condemn Antifa while White Supremacists get a police escort.

    All violence isn't equal. This is especially true of the magnitude of the violent acts committed by far right groups vs far left groups. In ethics, they certainly aren't comparable, but also not in scale.

    Before y'all brand MLK as some ultimate figure of peace or even think about using Ghandi:

    Say it with me: every civil right or justice earned/fought for required some amount of violence or civil disobedience that thus lead to violence.

    No such thing as settling **** with words.

    Your articles say the exact opposite of what you think they do. Both articles absolutely reaffirm their commitment to non-violence. The second extensively addresses the power of non-violence.

    The first article barely omits it, but here's MLK on riots:

    I’m merely convinced that a riot merely intensifies the fears of the white community while relieving the guilt. And I feel that we must always work with an effective, powerful weapon and method that brings about tangible results.

    There's a big difference between rioting and protesting, but for some people they don't see the line.

    People are fine with protesting as long as they aren't required to pay attention to the protesting. Anything that draws attention is labeled as a riot.
