As far as nonviolence is concerned, it worked perfectly for Gandhi because the Indian pop. outnumbered the white British population by 300 to 1. Half a billion Indians vs. 3million British? That's a train wreck waiting to happen. If I were an English Royal, I'd be on my knees every night thanking God that Mahatma Gandhi was a peaceful man. Had Gandhi been a role model for the NOI, instead of MLK, the world would be very different now.
