In this episode, we finish our discussion of the ethics of protest, and of whether or not violence in protest can be justified. Can thinking about the ethics of war help us understand whether violence in protest can be justified? Does the preservation of one's dignity sometimes require people to engage in acts of destruction? We also discuss the differing approaches to social resistance of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, and discuss the ways in which some violence can actually make protest more effective.
