  5. People often think the question of non-resistance to evil by force
    is a theoretical one, which can be neglected. Yet this question
    is presented by life itself to all men, and calls for some answer
    from every thinking man. Ever since Christianity has been
    outwardly professed, this question is for men in their social life
    like the question which presents itself to a traveler when the
    road on which he has been journeying divides into two branches.
    He must go on and he cannot say: I will not think about it, but
    will go on just as I did before. There was one road, now there
    are two, and he must make his choice. Flights to Karachi
