Principle Two: Nonviolence seeks to wind friendship and understand
Principle Three: Nonviolence seeks to defeat injustice not people
Principle Four: Nonviolence holds that suffering can educate and transform
Principle Five: Nonviolence chooses love instead of hate
Principle Six: Nonviolence believes that the universe is on the side of justice
