Surak TOS

Surak, Vulcan philosopher, logician, and pacifist

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

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

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