Nonviolence

If I was to give a speech on nonviolence, because I'm a gamer, I would say it like this: You can beat any game the system throws at you. The problem is though, if you are violent to defeat violence, the system is still the winner because violence was their goal in the first place. The way to beat the system is not to play their game. And as soon as you stop playing their game, you've won.

All you have to do is live the better example, live nonviolently and make your life very loud so the system can hear you no matter where you are. So basically, advertise the fact that you are nonviolent. Obviously the books I'd recommend on truly living nonviolently are: Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Love by Marshall Rosenberg, Instead of Medicating and Punishing by my Mom, Laurie A. Couture and any speeches that Gandhi wrote. These would set up a pretty good basis and start you off on a literary path of a whole host of awesome people.

People have been saying for years and years and years, "Nonviolence!", but its only been really recently, with my Mom being one of the forerunners, of people seeing nonviolence and compassion towards children as a way to save the world.
