MLK's 6 Principles of Nonviolence.

1.  one can resist evil without resorting to violence.
2.  nonviolence seeks to win the friendship and understanding of the opponent, not to humiliate him.
3  evil itself, not the people committing evil acts, should be opposed
4  those committed to nonviolence must be willing to suffer without retaliation as suffering itself can be redemptive
5  nonviolent resistance avoids external physical violence and internal violence of spirit as well. 
6  the nonviolent resister must have a deep faith in the future, stemming from the conviction that the universe is on the side of justice.
