I've asked myself many times "How do we remain non-violent when an evil such as the Taliban is running rampant?" I'm a member of the Rockingham Meeting, and my good friends there Jack and Susan have offered many good answers.
Fighting evil with violence generally fosters more violence, and thus we create an endless cylce--that is one way many Friends answer this question (there are other answers as well).

It is an interview with a former Taliban commander who was defeated, and then decided to join the Karzai government forces. The government forces lied to him on many fronts, tortured his brother, etc.--and now this man is back to fighting with the Taliban. Reading this story gives soundness to the Quaker answer cited above.
What do the rest of you think? If we aren't going to be violent, then what will we do?
