Non-violent resistance.


Non-violent resistance is a moral philosophy or strategy of action based on the principle of refusing to use physical force to bring about social, economic, or political change. Non-violent resistance is an alternative to subjugation and the use of armed force, and its means include symbolic protests, denials of economic or political cooperation, or boycotts, and civil disobedience.   It is often based on ethical and ideological reasons, but it is also justified on efficiency grounds.
