Assignment: Political activism and violence

With Gurr we find that people's discontent needs scope and breadth and justification to turn into violence. But how does engaging in political activism (which is not violence in it self) shape your outlook on the justifications on using violence? Perhaps we could use Torsdagsdemonstrationen (in English) to reflect on that.

Give one reflexion on or example of how experiences with political activism does influence normative and utilitarian justifications for political violence.

Length: 1 or 2 paragraphs.
