“In a very real sense, those who practice nonviolent resistance must commit themselves not to the defense of their own interests or even those of a particular group: they must commit themselves to the defense of objective truth and right above all of human beings.”—Thomas Merton

Article dedicated by Merton to Joan Baez, was first published as an Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) pamphlet. (Fellowship 33 [May 1967], 18-22)
