The subject of this article, and other chapters of From Dictatorship to Democracy by Gene Sharp are tools that can be used by an oppressed population that is subject to oppression by an authoritarian government with little public support. They can also be, and have been, used by reactionary forces against democratic governments that do have broad popular support, for example in Chile Wp→; they are tools, in essence, not much different from hammers and screwdrivers, or dynamite, for that matter.
