      ...acheived through nonviolence.

      This is dishonest, although somewhat understandable if your goal is to diminish the power of nonviolence in creating change.

        pigeonhole principle

        suggesting this itself was a point of contention in the Occupy movement. Some people associated with the movement eschew violence of any kind. Other people associated with the movement condone the destruction of property belonging to big multi-national corporations, e.g., Wells Fargo branch offices. My personal view is that violence can easily get out of hand in emotional, overheated situations, so it's best not to resort to it, at all.

        It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen
