What is non-violence without violence?
If violence is defined more broadly as the limitation of a person's
options by another person, then non-violence becomes the creation and
implementation of options for a person. If I want to be more
"non-violent", I help another person see options they did not know they
had. Instead of saying someone is being "non-violent", which requires,
in a real sense, the existence of "violence", I would say someone is
being an "option amplifier", which is a positive, proactive way of being instead of "non-violent", which is double-negative and reactive.
