Postscript: Other Lands
If I can say so without arrogance and with due humility, my message and methods are indeed, in their essentials, for the whole world.
Jai jagat! -- Victory to the world!
No look at Gandhi's successors would be complete without at least a glance at some of the people and groups around the world who have been strongly influenced by him.
Among these are a number of United States organizations. The largest are the Fellowship of Reconciliation, made up of religious pacifists; and the War Resisters League, with a generally more secular, leftist membership.
These and allied organizations have been at or near the center of all the major nonviolent action movements that have shaken United States society since World War II: the disarmament movement of the late 1950s and early 1960s; the civil rights movement (supporting Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference); the antiwar movement of the '60s; the movement against nuclear power in the '70s; and the resurgent disarmament movement of the '80s.
