Non-ViolenceThe philosophy of non-violence, more commonly known as pacifism, has many forms. All revolve around the concept that violence cannot improve the world and therefore is illogical and evil. Some religions are pacifistic (such as Buddhism and Jainism) and others have many pacifistic teachings (e.g.: "you shall not kill," from The Bible, amongst many others) but ones that are frequently ignored, for some reason I have never understood. There are also people who believe that violence is wrong or pointless for non-religious reasons. Search for 'pacifism' on Wikipedia and you should find more information.There are also some protests that have been carried out using a non-violent principle. For example, the Black Rights movement in America was based on non-violent protest, which highlighted the oppression they suffered when the news showed images of black protest marchers, including young children, being beaten and shot with water cannons but offering no retaliation. Non-violent protests in the fac of agression tend to provoke vast sympathy and are very effective. Ghandi's work is another excellent example of peaceful protest.
