“Therefore I suggest that the philosophy and strategy of nonviolence become immediately a subject for study and for serious experimentation in every field of human conflict, by no means excluding the relation between nations. It is, after all, nation-states which make war… We need to make a supreme effort to generate the readiness, indeed the eagerness, to enter into the new world which is now possible… So we need to see that peace represents a sweeter music, a cosmic melody that is far superior to the discords of war.”

–Martin Luther King Jr.
