Prompt 1. Colonialism entails a nation or state invading the territory of another nation and ruling in the colonizers’ own interests, rather than those of the local people. Some anti-colonial activists believed that nonviolence was the best way to end colonial rule and achieve autonomy or independence. Others argued that colonialism could only be defeated through violent struggle. Is violence justified in fighting against colonial rule? Why or why not?
