 He was in a suit and tie too.

I guess respectable politics didn’t work during that time or before then but…I guess someday, somehow it will work, at least according to those who still believe in this crap.

I think people miss the whole point of civil disobedience and the art of it.  It is not supposed to be peaceful in the way that we think of as peaceful. It is meant to disturb, to fluster, to get a reaction.  Everywhere Martin went he was sure their was a video camera?  Why?  So that when a police officer arrested him, or beat him, or tear gassed him that it would be captured and sent out on the national news.  And after it is on the news people get sick of it. Sick of the inhumanity.  And they come down to help or call their congressman to make it stop.

Peace doesn’t mean not doing anything.  Peace, in the terms Martin meant them, was to hold a mirror up to American society so they could see themselves clearly.
