Mainstream religion sometimes asserts an idea of peace, but also has brought us concepts like a “Just War”. Do any of your traditions address peace and nonviolence in any way? Or are they free of moral restraints? I am concerned with reconciling freedom with non-harm/ahimsa.
I thought of posting this in the Politics discussion section because I am interested in nonviolence as a political strategy and ideology, but I am also interested to know if there is a religious or spiritual basis for this in some paganisms.
