Hey thank you for the reply. I am familiar with the work you are referencing and it is by no means undisputed. Nor do I understand why its a work that had to be included in my analysis of a tv show. It’s relevant, but by no means essential.

Secondly I take issue with your term nonviolence. There is no such thing. The state commits violence against dissidents all the time. What you are advocating for is for protestors not to enact violence when violence is perpetuated against them. That’s fine if you believe that, but let’s just be clear what you are arguing for.
