This is an era of nonviolent struggle and Dr. Maciej Bartkowski is a scholar who studies how to make such struggles succeed. He does not much use vague words like "democracy" or "peace" or "justice" but insists that organizers establish specific goals of a kind that everyone can know when they have been achieved.
