    "Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue.
    It seeks to so dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored.
    My citing the creation of tension as part of the work of the nonviolent-resister may sound rather shocking.
    But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word "tension.
    I have earnestly opposed violent tension, but there is a type of constructive, nonviolent tension which is necessary for growth. . .
    The purpose of our direct-action program is to create a situation so crisis-packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation."
