On Freedom and Revolt: A Comparative Investigation

Camus and King were born, reared and lived as personal witnesses to the political, economic and social ravages of their time and place. Neither man was willing to stand in the presence of tyranny, oppression, racism, exploitation, murder, war and do nothing. Therefore their response, based on their calling, was a revolt for freedom.

Camus was the moral conscience of thousands of people, young and old, in Europe, the United states, and other places. He was able to impart to generations past and present a vision of hope and courage that gave optimism to doubt and uncertainty.

Likewise, Dr. King in his nonviolent American civil rights struggle has left a message for present and future times a philosophy of militant nonviolent revolt in the face of overwhelming nullification against himself and his followers that is infused with hope, justice and love.

Comparing the writings of these two Nobel Laureates and international hero-scholars is put forth here as a contribution to the never-ending quest for a more just, humane and rational world where we coexist in a civilized society in pursuit of being "My brother's keeper."
