Alright I have an important research paper coming up soon and i've done some preliminary research on Mahatma Gandhi and just wanted to see if i was in the ball park with my observations (as to not completely misinterpret this man's message).
The topic I have chosen is as follows : Which system of government is superior as a means of achieving economic and/or social justice?

Obviously he felt that India should have their own rule, and I take it he wanted a democracy (although there seems to be some conflicting socialist and even communist-like philosophy). At this point I get confused. I completely understand his means of India reaching its own rule...via non-violence, non-cooperation, etc. But what I'm a bit confused with is what type of government he'd want in place whent they became free. I've read of his village-system like philosophy where it would create self-sufficent villages and therefor state, but there seems to be some conflicting interests. He wrote in some places that he felt industry and technology should be controlled so that India would benefit everyone down to the last person, therefor I gather he was against capitolism.
I'm not sure if anyone will see this in time, but if you could clear this up somewhat or point me in some type of a direction, I would greatly appreciate it! My e-mail is or you could post a reply as I will be checking up!
Thank You!

I'm doing a essay on Gandhi for school- just wondering if anyone had any ideas on this topic they wanted to share-

Was it Gandhi's civil disobedience and passive resistance that led to India's emancipation from the British, or was it his appeal to the British Christian values?

I know that it is easy for us to look at the British rulers as the ultimate "evil oppressors", but if we think about it, would Gandhi's methods of passive resistance have worked under an even more tyrannic ruling force?

For example, would Gandhi's ideals have worked under a communist government? A dictatorship? A society that didn't follow the just teachings of Christ, and therefore didn't feel compelled to be somewhat guilty?

Maybe Gandhi and his supporters would have been completely shut down under any other government.

Please let me know what you think...
