Is non-violence about not fighting the false and evil?

Non-violence is not synonymous with non-resistance or cowardice.

Violence is fear, fear is ignorance — it’s obvious.

When you do not know yourself, then you somehow want your own limited, physical, personal security at the cost of everybody else, at the cost of the entire universe. This division is fear and violence.
