Gandhi correspondence

Paul Beswick

Thanks for your considered letter last issue. Yes, we can certainly agree that we should struggle for an end to class division: maybe we still disagree about the need for a proletarian dictatorship. Who knows?

Trying to create a nonviolent revolution, like working for Swaraj in India, carries risks. That we might end up with civil war is one of these risks. Given the atrocities of war, everywhere, I sincerely hope PN continues to preach nonviolent revolution.

Editor Response: 

Thank you, Paul. I hope we continue down the same path together, opposing the dictatorship of the proletariat or of any other class.
