Surak TOS

Surak, Vulcan philosopher, logician, and pacifist

Pacifism is the ethical position that violence and war are immoral. Strict pacifists refrain from all forms of violence, while restricted pacifists make some exceptions, for example, in cases of self-defense.

Pacifism often arises out of a respect for other forms of life, even hostile ones. As such, tendencies of pacifism and vegetarianism often overlap.

Sometimes pacifism is tied to religious belief, but this is not necessarily the case. As with Vulcans, secular ethics based on pure reason can result in pacifism.
