Travis, look at the signature of Fuzzy, that should help clear the question you asked. Fuzzy quotes Mohandas Karmchand Gandi. Mr. Gandi used peaceful civil disobedience to fight oppression. This is called passive resistance. Mr. Gandi began his last fast (not eating in protest) praying for Indian Unity. Sadly, he was shot before he could complete this mission.
I think it would take more that Mr. Gandi to unify the Deaf. (ducking and running)
