yes - neither Ghandi nor Wink are advocating violence - but instead a conscious choosing of nonviolence as a response.
I often reflect on the painful choice that Bonhoeffer made to participate in the attempted assassination of Hitler. It may be that some acts of violence are for the greater good - although I'd say they'd be very few and far between.
If your refusal to act with violence is made from a position of courage and strength - an active resistance - then it is good. Wink's drawing a clear line that being nonviolent is NOT being passive.
