Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
A women named Erica Chenoweth of Harvard has researched hundreds of campaigns over the last century and found that civil disobedience is not only a moral choice but the most powerful way of shaping politics. She started her research with the idea of trying to understand terrorism. She was resistant to the idea of civil disobedience. But because of her research, she has created a rule of 3.5%. This rule relates to the amount of the population that gets engaged in a non-violent resistance.
In 1986 millions of Filipinos (2 Million at the height of the campaign) in Manila lead a peaceful protest and prayer movement. After 4 days the Marcos regime folded.
In 2003 the people of Georgia lead the bloodless Rose revolution. They ousted Eduard Shevardnadze.
Earlier this year, the presidents of Sudan and Algeria stepped aside after decades, because of peaceful campaigns.
The other side of the coin shows that peaceful resistance failed 47% of the time because the protests only reached 2% of the population. Also the ability to keep the group cohesive is another factor.
So we have the 3.5% rule.
