Peaceful Movements Vs. Violent Movements Nonviolent movements are commonly perceived to be non-beneficial; acts of resistance that barely accomplish anything. People deem them to be a waste of time, because all throughout history, the majority of successful peaceful protests were disregarded, so people presume that acting nonviolently results in no change whatsoever. As a matter of fact, the most successful protests are the civilized ones, because they can impact the public and bring in more followers. Violent protests cause people to lose support for a movement, and they are more likely to result in chaos. Simply put, peaceful movements are the best way to bring about change, and there are various reasons to support that fact. First of all, a nonviolent resistance raises awareness in a peaceful manner, which can easily get more people to join the movement. These type of movements always end up making a revolutionary change, if led by an exemplary model, because they can use their words and knowledge to get their point across. As the leader will demonstrate the appropriate way to carry on a protest without endangering the supporters’ lives. Public heroes are a good way to bring about change, because they can skillfully persuade the general public with their eloquent words (Polster, 2001, p.163). Let us take Nelson Mandela as a prime example: he fought with his words and intelligence rather than his fist, and he ended up destroying the apartheid policy in South Africa. Even though it was a struggle, he still managed to do it non-violently and with great success. From that, one can understand that “Heroes are catalysts for change” (Tollefson, 1993, p.160). In addition, to this day Mr. Mandela is seen as a hero to those who have supported his movement and stand by what he did. Another reason is that peaceful protests are pretty much the only movements that abide by the rules of a government. With that being said, if one does not comply with these rules, no change will occur and the time and effort invested in that movement will have gone to waste. “Simply put if people do not obey, then rulers or corporations cannot rule” (Merriman, 2008, p.165). There is always a system that one has to follow in order for a protest to succeed, and if someone goes against it, they will be condemned for it. If the justice system allowed retaliation that went against the law, the country would be in chaos. Furthermore, nonviolent protests teach people to take a more peaceful approach towards all things as opposed to going violent as a means of a solution. Some people believe that a violent campaign is the way to go, that it is the only way to get a point across and one’s voice heard. On top of that, they believe that peaceful protests are tedious and take too long to show effectiveness and also that they're rarely successful. In actuality, that mentality will result in chaos, because if these kind of protests are accepted, it will teach the public that resorting to violence is okay. Likewise, joining or supporting violent movements means putting one’s life at stake, as the outcome is unknown. On the other hand, NVMs show that peace resolves matters. In conclusion, it is evident that peaceful movements can impact people more successfully than violent movements and are better in the long run. It may be the norm for a country to experience violent protests and have them succeed while others have a completely different history. Just because a violent movement succeeded somewhere doesn't mean that it is fine. They might have accomplished something, but they still compromised something that is more important, which is security. References Merriman, H. (2008). Agents of change and nonviolent action.
