M.A.D. Vs. Non-Violence

By: Grant Christensen


Mutually assured destruction
Mutually Assured Destruction

  • Mutually Assured Destruction – A military theory of nuclear deterrence holding that neither side will attack the other if both sides are guaranteed to be totally destroyed in the conflict.

  • In other words, neither side will fight each other because each side knows the other can fight back just as hard.


Mutually assured destruction1
Mutually Assured Destruction

  • The Cold War is perfect example of M.A.D.

  • Both the U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A. demonstrated M.A.D.

  • Each nation had Weapons of Mass Destruction which could be used against each other.

  • The fear of MAD was the best way to secure peace, rather than threatening a limited nuclear exchange from which one side might hope to survive with an advantage.


Non violence
Non-Violence

  • Gandhi's great achievement was to evolve and practice a non-violent method for conflict resolution.

  • Although Gandhi strived for this his efforts were not always sucessful.

Non-Violence

  • Gandhi eventually believed that by recruiting local people to defend the Empire he could impress the British with Indians’ loyalty (by having an “army”) and thus earn independence.

  • By his actions in doing this he used a form of M.A.D.


My opinion
My Opinion

  • M.A.D. is a more logical choice.

  • Although Gandhi wanted Non-Violent protests, his efforts were sometimes unsuccessful.

  • In a M.A.D. scenario each side knows the other and can fight back just as hard.

  • So each side agrees to not fight each other.
