George and Mahatma

Interesting series of posts over at Andrew Sullivan. In the first, Sullivan implies that Orwell "dismissed Gandhi's pacifism as idiotic," but wonders if the method deserves reappraisal. In the second, a reader writes in to give Gandhi props, but thinks the weakened British Empire makes the example less than perfectly useful for other situations. Lastly, a reader writes in to correct the record about Orwell's opinion.
