Excellent. Non-violent, civil-disobedience, Gandhi-style, certainly has potential to promote social-change.

there are so many ways to express our alarm in non-violent ways, but it does take a lot of people of the same mind to make it work.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. I get mailings from Peaceful Uprising and admire DeChristopher for his actions. What he stated in the article makes sense and gives hope.

Deserves credit for what he does, but I'm not certain you can say "His civil disobedience, though spontaneous, ultimately caused the cancellation of the auction sales." Maybe the first one was, the subsequent were not.

Noted. Great! This Mr. DeChristopher is showing the way to make people see what is going on. Most people prefer to hide their heads in the sand and hope things get better, Mr. DeChristopher is helping them get their heads up and start doping something.
