Finding Courage Discussion Guide

Is nonviolence a universal requirement or merely a sometimes-useful strategy? Nelson Mandela, for example, during the struggle against apartheid, rejected demands that the African National Congress renounce violence as a strategy. Is nonviolence always required or are there times when violence is necessary? Have you seen nonviolent action work? What made it succeed? Have you seen it fail? In what way and why?
