That Clausewitz of nonviolence, Gene Sharp, pointed out that the easiest way for nonviolence to succeed is by conversion: "By conversion we mean that the opponent, as the result of the actions of the nonviolent struggle group or person, comes around to the point of view which embraces the ends of the nonviolent actor....Conversion in nonviolent struggle thus aims not simply to free the subordinate group, but also to free the opponents who are thought to be imprisoned by their own system and policies....to separate the evil from the evildoer, to remove the 'evil' while salvaging the 'evildoer.'"
