strong coherent ideal, and when the ideal crumbles, the nation
disintegrates. American Society had very great ideals in the beginning,
withGeorgeWashington,ThomasJefferson,JohnAdamsandothergreat
patriots providing an ideal framework for the nations foundation. It
immediately becomes manifest when the Americans
proclaimed neutrality and did not side with France, in a war
against Britain. Abraham Lincoln saved the union, and the nation
fought for high ideals i.e., the emancipation of slavery and equality of
man.

freedom in the form of violence, bullying others, in the
development of abnormalities, in the development of mental
problems, and when they grow, they resort to violence, to
express themselves. The nation has lost its ideal. The young
generation, failed to understand the meaning of strength and weakness,
failed to understand the meaning of freedom, failed to understand the
meaningofloveandlife.

has found an antidote to violence. Every contemporary violent
society needs to embrace his philosophy and ideals to save
themselves. He is none other than our Mahatma Gandhi. The gun
toting kids, mass shootings, racial hatreds, violence motivated
by anger, will all vanish into thin air when they learn of this
beautiful philosophy of nonviolence. Below are the six quotes of
MahatmaGandhi,andisthemedicineforeveryviolentsocietytoredeem
themselves.

TheSixquotes:

1.Nonviolenceisaweaponofthestrong.

2. Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is


mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the
ingenuityofman.

3.Theweakcanneverforgive.Forgivenessistheattributeofthestrong.
4.Aneyeforeyeonlyendsupmakingthewholeworldblind.

5. Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with


love.

6.Wherethereislovethereislife.

These ideals had been put to test by Mahatma Gandhi, under the
most violent circumstances, and under the very nose of the British
Empire,whowerethentheglobalsuperpower.Andwhathappenedat
