Nonviolence includes speech. We cannot indiscriminately excuse and justify violence in speech e.g gossip, harsh speech, bullying, defamation, slander, intimidation and so forth in private or public and claim we are for nonviolence. How we speak to each other and about each other in private matters. It is as important as our actions because negative behaviour in private does not end there. If we truly believe nonviolence is essential to changing the world, then we must be consistent and congruent in thought, word and action. Peace.
