Use Obstacles Against Themselves
Martin Luther King Jr. told his followers that they would meet “physical force with soul force.” In other words, they would use the power of opposites against their oppressors. In the face of violence they would be peaceful, to hate they would answer with love - and in the process, they would expose those efforts as indefensible and evil. Passive resistance is, in fact, incredibly active. We can use the things that block us to our advantage, letting them do the difficult work for us.
