Crimea is a mere detail, even if the native Russians have legitimate worries about marginalization by Kiev.Crimea without Putin – like Ukraine, Russia and the rest of the world without Putin – would create a more viable avenue for living together without political violence. And only the Russians can bring Putin down. Once Putin is out and put on trial along with Yanukovych, the world will have turned a page. We had thought that a page was turned in 1991, and we should never forget how important Mikhail Gorbachev's role was in making the world safer for democracy. We missed many occasions to put an end to dictatorships in the world because we did not realize how powerful nonviolence is and how the aftermath of a nonviolent revolution needs attention, both in the new constitutions that have to be put in place and in the accountability required from those of the former regimes who killed, imprisoned and tortured.The second Ukrainian revolution presents a new chance for a philosophy of nonviolence to take root in the world.
