Rioting and revolution (Martin Luther King, Jr.)


It is time to bring back peace and to reflect on the events of late and what has led up to them and what has fueled them to spread beyond the London neighborhood. Show them that a sense of community can overcome all obstacles. What they destroy, you can rebuild. What has been shattered can still be put back together. A civilized people will always win out. A famous American by the name of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said the following, “The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.”
