    Exclamation School Assignment (HELP)

    Ugh so I've been doing my SOSE assignment for about 4 hours now. I've been sick and when I went to school today I was told by my teacher that a draft is due tomorrow even though he said it was next week .
    We have to write an essay on how Satyagraha was used by Martin Luther King. We were given 3 points to write a paragraph about I've done every one except the last which is "Doesn't multiply injustice" <------- what does that even mean O_o??? I'm pretty confused. We have to use 2 pieces of evidence to support the argument and I don't know which to use because I don't even understand the point Evidence include's Montgomery bus boycott,I have a dream speech ect

    Nope that's it, we have to support the argument that Kings use of Satyagraha doesn't multiply injustice. Its really confusing me

    By multiply injustice it means creates more injustice overall.

    If I remember right Satyagraha was first used by Gandhi and was the usage of love and nonviolence as tools for social reform and protest. Therefore the question means how did MLK's approach to obtain social reform through nonviolence did not cause more injustice inflicted on people than they may have had otherwise if they protested violently. Questions with negatives are confusing and should not be allowed, IMO.

    At least that was my interpretation of the question.

    Satyagraha, by definition, cannot multiply injustice as the entire goal is to convert the agressor into a cooperating with the solution.

    "The essence of Satyagraha is that it seeks to eliminate antagonisms without harming the antagonists themselves, as opposed to violent resistance, which is meant to cause harm to the antagonist. A Satyagrahi therefore does not seek to end or destroy the relationship with the antagonist, but instead seeks to transform or “purify” it to a higher level. A euphemism sometimes used for Satyagraha is that it is a “silent force” or a “soul force” (a term also used by Martin Luther King Jr. During his famous “I Have a Dream” speech). It arms the individual with moral power rather than physical power. Satyagraha is also termed a “universal force,” as it essentially “makes no distinction between kinsmen and strangers, young and old, man and woman, friend and foe.”[14]

    Gandhi contrasted satyagraha (holding on to truth) with “duragraha” (holding on by force), as in protest meant more to harass than enlighten opponents. He wrote: “There must be no impatience, no barbarity, no insolence, no undue pressure. If we want to cultivate a true spirit of democracy, we cannot afford to be intolerant. Intolerance betrays want of faith in one's cause.”[15]

    Civil disobedience and non-cooperation as practised under Satyagraha are based on the “law of suffering”,[16] a doctrine that the endurance of suffering is a means to an end. This end usually implies a moral upliftment or progress of an individual or society. Therefore, non-cooperation in Satyagraha is in fact a means to secure the cooperation of the opponent consistently with truth and justice."

    Here's the link to this article: Satyagraha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you read it I think you'll get a pretty good picture.
