Originally Answered: Is a peacefull nonviolent active revolution possible on a world wide scale?
Yes. Be mindful a core of demonstrators can define nonviolent direct action, and a minority of violent demonstrators can gain the news coverage. What you ask requires a charismatic leader(s) that can train people to have discipline over emotional provocation. A skilled grassroots organizer(s) on a global scale defining a specific issue that requires the time and attention of the establishment. Since YouTube is available and podcasts are attainable, it is possible to bypass organized media that will edit and put a spin on the issue, but not entirely. The internet is a useful organ, much like the newspaper used to be for the opressed Jews in Hitler's Germany, or the underground railroad during Slavery in this country. Organization, a clear definition of the cause, if you will, party discipline meaning more indians than chiefs and a coordinated channel of communication, then the struggle. Understand that governments will employ subversive tactics to undermine any movement that threatens to supplant them. It would be viewed and studied for it's potential and methodically attacked. This "Revolution" could not go on with out a exit strategy. The sustainability of any movement must be viewed with precision, wheather a Civil Rights Movement or a Troop Surge in Iraq. Very, very difficult, but certainly possible if done by committee. One other fact, the source of any use of money has everything to do with the extent anyone can make a case. The question is, who is willing to give their life and make ultimate sacrifices for the good of humanity. People of evil intent are willing to go to this extreme, I am not so sure people of good will have the voice and the spine, inside government or on the activist side of the equation.
