I see Violence as:
If it doesn't meet those conditions, it may be just as evil, viscious, hurtful, destructive and black. But to myself, it is abuse, cruelty, harmful, neglectful or just meanness. Some of which I consider worse than violent.
The idea of exposing another to danger, unfairness and mere thoughts as equivent violence, and the desire to paint them as such in order to make them less acceptable, spurring on self-censorship and a healthier mind, is not lost on me. It is a worthy goal. However, I find the means to achieve it naive and overly idealistic.
I know this definition falls short of the more encompassing belief held by the majority on this site. But the goal to end injustice and pointless sufferring is one I share... The semantics may or may not make a difference.
