Norman Finkelstein: Sobre Gandhi, no-violencia y Palestina


Entrevista a Norman Finkelstein sobre Gandhi, su concepción de la no-violencia y el contexto Palestino. Muy interesante lo de aclarar la visión de Gandhi sobre la no-violencia (demasiada gente tiene una visión "osito de peluche" sobre el tema). También interesante la crítica Gandhiana a la actitud Marxista-Leninista de "guiar a las masas".

Algunas citas "curiosas" de Gandhi:

"My nonviolence does not admit of running away from danger and leaving dear ones unprotected. Between violence and cowardly flight, I can only prefer violence to cowardice..."

"Nonviolence means you’re supposed to march into the line of fire smilingly and cheerfully, and get yourself blown to bits."

"Don’t be a coward and go to jail, because you’re afraid to get killed. Don’t use jail as a pretext to get away from getting killed. You better get your skulls cracked. Otherwise, I don’t want to hear from you."
