"For some, living a long life but on their knees, is acceptable.
My point is that Ghandi was a domesticated mule. That is not the life for me."
It is evident that you understand very little about the life of Gandhi. In fact, he raised an enslaved nation from its knees by the moral force of passive resistance while the British were dying with their boots on by the millions. When they had finished their dying, they no longer had the psychological, or even military, wherewithal to resist that moral force, and India became a free nation.
But you are surely right about one thing: that is not the life for you. Fight on, then, but against who? And for what?
