Aftermath of World War 2 Document 169: This document shows a way to go against laws without being an extremist or harming others with physical violence. One of these is passive resistance, in which Gandhi is an example, because he protested against the taxation of salt from the British, and strived for the independence from the British. The trick to passive resistance, is to not obey the laws that you know is wrong. This causes soulforce, in which one sacrfices oneself by accepting the punishment of not following the law that they feel is wrong. According to the document, this kind of resistance is more powerful than using weapons or force against those that pass the laws that one disagrees with, because those that do violence bring new laws which they feel everyone should abide by. Document 177: This document talks about how war by using violence is sometimes necessary in certain situations for people to win wars, but has a high cost. This cost for example is the return of more violence from the other side which yields more deaths. An example of this is colonization and the outlook that people have about the opposing side and how colonization doesn’t unite natives but divides them. So then, settlers think that all natives are the same and all natives think that all settlers are the same, which has been an ongoing trend in history. Frantz Fanon wrote about this, as well as comparisons to views in Algeria and the effects of colonization on individuals as well as the government, and that violence causes an ongoing circle of hate between leaders and those under them. (That if the people are over the government, the government suffers, and when the government is over the people, the people suffer.) So, violence causes psychological decolonization making nations independent and nationalistic. Europe did the opposite because they colonized different areas making foreigners wanting a repayment for what Europe had done to them. SIU Online Doc. 19.3: This document was by Jomo Kenyatta from Mount Kenya. He talked about how important his culture was, and that the Europeans could not comprehend its importance, because his culture defined who he was, as well as his family, morals, and life. The Europeans didn’t see that as an importance, but felt it was important to build up Kenya for an economic purpose to benefit themselves, in turn thinking they were helping Kenya when they were really crushing and stealing away what was most important to the Kenyans. They changed their government, enforced their progressive ideas, and try to civilize them to their liking.
