In Pursuit of Non-Violence
This site seeks to present the case for non-violent resolution to conflict and war.
"I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace."
~ Albert Einstein ~
There are several forms of pacifism. An absolute pacifist will never kill another human, even when threatened with great danger. A conditional pacifist will seek non-violent solutions, but may use force to defend themselves or others.
When one thinks carefully, the vast majority of humans adopt a certain position of pacifism - we generally learn to control our defensive instincts, at least to some degree. Explore this site and refine your own approach to conflict and war.
