What Is Violence?

General Material
Published Date
May, 2016

In this video, Mike Rugnetta, host of the PBS Idea Channel, describes violence as being about the removal of choice rather than just physical violence. The video also explains that violence can be passive, and that there is an important ethical dimension to thinking of violence as more than “physical violence,” which is just one of many different kinds of violence.
