Anarcho-pacifism

Anarcho-pacifism is a form of anarchism emphasizing the complete rejection of violence in any form for any purpose (esp. political). It is most commonly associated with religious anarchism, such as Christian anarchism[?] or Buddhist anarchism[?]. However, the punk rock band Crass polemicised a variant of anarcho-pacifism whilst at the same time explicitly rejecting all religions, especially the symbols of 'establishment' Christian mythology. In fact the band faced legal prosecution for blasphemy due to their composition "Reality Asylum".
