EMPOWERING ADVOCATE FOR FREEDOM: The Story of Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Gene Sharp (the most important man you’ve never heard of)

“Gene Sharp (born January 21, 1928) is the founder of the Albert Einstein Institution, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the study of nonviolent action, and is a retired professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.   He is known for his extensive writings on nonviolent struggle, which have influenced numerous anti-government resistance movements around the world.”

Sharp was nominated for the the Nobel Peace Prize.   His 198 non-violent methods of resistance have been used around the world to bring down repressive regimes.   Deposed dictators curse the name of Gene Sharp.

Gene Sharp is Jamila Raqib‘s mentor.    Here Raqib puts it simply: “Nonviolent struggle works by destroying an opponent. Not physically but by identifying the institutions that an opponent needs to survive and then denying them those sources of power.”
