This category groups together pages pertaining to individuals, groups, governments, and organizations that generally do not believe in taking the offensive. In the most stark cases, these individuals harbor the belief that war and violence are unjustifiable under any circumstances, and that all disputes should be settled by peaceful means. They often also choose to refuse participation in war or military service because of such a belief. However, not all bodies that can be considered pacifistic conform to these extremes in all circumstances, but rather often stay closer to a middle-ground.
