> What about a person NOT allowing themselves to be blackmailed and coerced?
Anyone can be blackmailed and coerced. Our world economy is a testament to that. One reason
it's so easy to blackmail or coerce people is because so many are in complete Denial that it can
ever happen to them. Yet it happens countless times on a daily basis.
> People are helpless victims of this?
Some people are, yes. In order to not be a victim, helpless or otherwise, one has to first
acknowledge that we live in a world that pretty much runs by coercion and blackmail. Being in
denial of that guarantees helplessness.
> Didn't Gandhi believe in non resistence
>like allowing everything and everyone to just be?
Gandhi was an ACTIVIST, not a retard.
Do you think I made up the quote about coersion and blackmail too? Or are you just choosing to
believe whatever you feel like, since that "works" for you?
