Abstract

This Philosophy MQP argues that activism as a non-violent form of political expression can make our lives better. It demonstrates that expressing our beliefs politically can strengthen our sense of moral integrity and help support our spiritual aspirations. Resources used include philosophical analyses of resistance, accounts of the links between spirituality and social change, and historical examples of activism's effects on both individuals and societies.
