Pacifism is the oppositive of war, terrorism and other violent activism. A pacifist tries to find all other possibilities before for the use of force or active resistance is taken. Pacifists are usually aligned with the peace movement and against aggressive war, although pacifist measures can be taken by governments and other organisations to prevent dissent.
Pacifism involves conformity and compliance. Rather than take offensive action a pacifist has a preference to quell and modify the free will of their adversary independently of their threatening actions.
