There seems to be plenty of people with better reasons than this to have a reason to fight the government, but if this is how we fight it then we will end up with anarchy.

When the blacks fought for civil rights in the 60s, Rosa Parks simply refused to move to the back of the bus, Ghandi and Martin Luther King also showed what can be done peacefully, without guns and racist rants.

If only Mandela had folliwed their example. In regard to India not much has changed. The government oppresses the poor and violence is widespread. Only difference is no Englishman pulling the strings. Man will never change by his own power.

Yes, another legacy of the Raj.  We are grateful for the trains, though. 
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

Dunno about all that. Just know it worked when it counted the most.

Well, aside from the bit about 'racist rants,' our friends back in 1776 believed in armed insurrection.
It worked, too.
...and our friends back in 1822, 1831, and 1859, all of which didn't work.


There is no way to know that other non-violent means would have worked, and very well may have eventually,  but there is also many others such as terrorist acts and race riots that accomplish nothing more than revenge and fear.
