Gene Sharp





Gene Sharp is an 83 year old author who lives in Boston Massachusetts, his life's work has been writing books on how to take down dictatorships. Sharp has written numerous books on getting out of dictatorships but is most famous for his 93 page book "From Dictatorship to Democracy." The book is available in 24 different languages and has been used to transform governments. Sharp has inspired and handed ideas to places like Burma, Bosnia, Estonia, Zimbabwe, and even some in Tunisia and Egypt. Another piece of written work that is popular is "198 Methods of Nonviolent Action" which names different ways to protest peacefully. Sharp has actually been a part of a few protests himself, he participated in lunch counter sit-ins and spent nine months in federal prison for conscientiously objecting the War. Sharp still lives in the house he bought in 1968 for $150 dollars and back taxes and isn't a fan of the internet, he needs a set of handwritten directions to send an e-mail. Sharp believes in non-violent protesting but not because he thinks it is morally right he just thinks its better strategy, in fact he says "If you fight with violence, you are fighting with your enemy's best weapon, and you might be a brave but dead hero." Sharp thinks that an autocrat will crack down more on violent protests so your better off with strategically planned nonviolent methods. Sharp might be getting older but he isn't really slowing down, he's actually working on another book "Sharp's Dictionary of Power and Struggle: Terminology of Civil Resistance in Conflicts." He is also keeping his eye on Egypt because they amaze him "That is straight out of Gandhi, if people are not afraid of the dictatorship, that dictatorship is in big trouble."

I think that Sharp has a lot of transcendentalist beliefs he supports nonviolence, has self reliance, and takes responsibility for himself. Even though Sharp is 83 years old he is self reliant he shops for his own groceries, lives mostly by himself (he has an assistant who contributes to his books), and has his own writing career. He supports nonviolence even though he and Thoreau have different reasons for supporting nonviolence they both believe it is the best way to protest. Thoreau has said "the soldier is applauded who refuses to serve in an unjust war by those who do not refuse to sustain the unjust government which makes the war." Sharp also lives a simple life living in the same house and he doesn't really believe in the internet, his only focus is writing books to help people stuck in dictator governments which Thoreau would approve of considering he said "simplicity,simplicity,simplicity, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand...."


GreenPeaceGreenPeace is an orginization that protests pollution or destruction of the enviroment. GreenPeace fights for what they believe in using nonviolent yet effective methods. Their mission statement is "GreenPeace is the leading independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful direct action and creative communication to expose global enviromental problems and to promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaeful future." The group started in 1970 with the Don't Make a Wave Commitee, but in 1971 the group evolved into the GreenPeace. Their first mission was to stop nuclear testing at Amchitka. Amchitka was home to 3,000 otters, bald eagles, and falcons. Their ship was intercepted before they could reach the island, but they did spark web interest and nuclear testing stopped less than a year later. GreenPeace relies on nonviolent protests and civil disobedience to get their point across. This organization protests corporation, politicians, and even ships or international problems. Those in GreenPeace are prepared to take responsibility for their protesting too, they are "bearing witness" to these acts and will take punishment if need be. This organization has had many victories in all parts of the world and will allow anyone to volunteer. these activists are not afraid of consequences or even their lives and will protest until their voice is heard. Green Peace is an effective organization winning countless battles to protect our planet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJlc7sWsFYE check out this link to see GreenPeace in action.The GreenPeace is an example of transcendentalism because of their values. They believe in nonviolent protests, civil disobedience, they have a love for nature, and when protesting they are not conforming. The GreenPeace organization protest in all kinds of ways yet all of them are nonviolent. They want to capture people's attention, but they don't want to attack people. This is a main belief of transcendentalism Thoreau said "let your life be a counter-friction to stop the machine." GreenPeace is doing exactly that, they are going at huge corporations and trying to stop what they are doing. GreenPeace uses civil disobedience to help get their point across Thoreau wrote a whole lecture on how to be disobedient to better yourself and the world. GreenPeace fights to protect nature because it's iimportant to them just like it's important to transcendentalists. In Nature Walden said "In the wilderness I find something more dear and connant than in streets or villages." Nature is what GreenPeace is proteting so that the world will be a better place, full of beauty. I also think you could argue that this orginization is self reliant. They aren't tied to the government and don't depend on anyone for money except from themselves and donations. they do not take government funds or money form companies. they do this so they aren't tied down and to show that you can change the world with just a small group. Thoreau wrote in Walden "that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet sucess in noncommon hours." GreenPeace is doing exactly that. They see a better life for all living things and are pushing for it and they will be sucessful. They are also nonconformists because the world always overlooks pollution and enviroment hazards. GreenPeace refuses to look the other way. They aren't following anyone else they are carving their own path. Thoreau would agree with this because he said " How worn and dusty, then, must be the highways of the world, how deep the ruts of tradition and conformity." The GreenPeace has a lot of transcendentalist beliefs and i think Thoreau and Emerson would have admired them.

Toby Mac "one world"

One time
One world
Two times
One love
Three times
Rewind
‘Cause I’m a dedicate this song to everyone of God’s children

Come as you are
Come just like you be
It’s the bumps and curves of our history
But no block in the road that we can’t traverse
And no wounds from the past that can’t be nursed
All hate gonna to dissipate from our fate
No check, together we got a checkmate
All hate gonna dissipate and fade away

To make room for a brand new day we got
We got one world ’til its time to fly
So it’s one love ’til we say goodbye
We got one world its enough to share
‘Til we’re called home and we’re caught up in the air we got

One world
I’ll look out for you, you look out for me
One world
Together we can be perfect harmony
One world
I’ll look out for you, you look out for me
One world
And I’m a dedicate this song to everyone of God’s children

One world oughta be more than enough
And if its not, is God looking in pure disgust?
Wondering what the dilly with the silly I see?
When I made each of these in the image of me
Everyday is a chance for a new stance
Like every song is the beginning of a new dance
And everyone of us was made to reflect the light
And glorify the most high so bright we got

You can come as you are
Love is yours
Love is ours
I am a witness
To sweet forgiveness
You will shine like a star
Burning bright where you are in our one world

I think this represents transcendentalist beliefs because Thoreau said " Only that day dawns to which we are awake.There is more day to dawn.The sun is but a morning star." He is saying that each day is a new opportunity to achieve your goals and dreams, and every morning you get another chance at making them happen. This message is also in the song in the line "Everyday is a chance for a new stance/ like every song is the beginning of a new dance." This song is also optimistic because it says "All hate gonna dissipate from our fate" and the line "together we can be perfect harmony" he is saying that if everyone would work together then we could make a better world, one without hate. Obviously this is very optimistic because there are always problems but Emerson was also optimistic saying "Though the wide universe is full of good." Another transcendentalist belief in this song is individuality or nonconformity it says "Come as you are/ come just like you be." The song is saying to be yourself because your fine just the way you are. Nonconformity is a big part of transcendentalism Emerson said "imitation is suicide and envy is ignorance." Both of these quotes are saying to be your self because when you try to be someone else you "kill" who you really are, this is a major value of transcendentalism.


If Everyone Cared lyrics
Songwriters: Adair, Daniel; Kroeger, Michael; Kroeger, Chad; Peake, Ryan;

From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing, "Amen I, I'm alive"
(I'm alive)
Singing, "Amen I, I'm alive"

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

And I'm singing
Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I
(I'm alive)

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

Singing, "Amen I, I'm alive"
(I'm alive)
Singing, "Amen I, I'm alive"

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
[ From : http://www.elyrics.net/read/n/nickelback-lyrics/if-everyone-cared-lyrics.html ]
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
When nobody died

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
(When nobody died)
We'd see the day, we'd see the day
(When nobody died)
We'd see the day
(When nobody died)



This song represents transcendentalism because it shows optimism and human perfectibility. It also mentions God and transcendentalists like being close to God. The main point of this song is to point out human flaw. It talks about pride, lieing, and death. Obviously death is inevitable but we could die better people. Thoreau said " Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal." He was saying each day is a new chance to be a better person. This song says when everyone starts bettering themselves then people will stop "dying" which could mean being stuck in the pattern of life or bored with ourselves. Thoreau would agree because he saw each day as a new beginning which we should take advantage of. This song also has almost like a prayer in it. Thanking God for being alove, transcendentalists liked to write about God and be close to him. This is definitley a song a transcendentalist would like because they could relate to the hiden messages and the desire to be close to God.
