Uncle Sam wants you to pledge you’ll only resist his violence nonviolently

Uncle Sam: I want you to submit, shut up, or protest only nonviolently. It's cheaper.At Juneteenth this weekend, I saw the local Justice & Peace table being manned by young graduates of its “Peace Camp.” I resisted asking them if their religio- pacifist training was being extended to corporations and oligarchs, or was nonviolence a prohibition for just them, the social-justice-minded, idealistic youth? How convenient for an increasingly deaf leadership to require that even the most desperate, urgent protestations remain toothless.
