Just mentioning the word “nonviolence” brings to mind two hallowed peace patriots: Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. There is some debate on whether nonviolence is the opposite of war, but in a world where animals are subjected to reprehensible degrees of violence every moment, almost exclusively at our hand, war is only the tip […]
