ethical resistance

"I use 'ethics' broadly to refer to obligations that present themselves as necessarily to be fulfilled but that are neither forced on one nor enforceable? Ethical resistance involves the individual more than the institution or the population. It may be the basis for an individual's choice of engaging in social or political resistance. Yet it requires a different kind of explanation. For Emmanuel Levinas, ethical resistance is not the attempt to use power against itself, or to mobilize sectors of the population to exert their political power; ethical resistance is instead the resistance of the powerless."(Critical Resistance|David Hoy)

:: note :: ... seeing in frames of power & struggles ... an alternative is testimony, witness, create context, conversations, narrative and evidence ...
