Nope. You're the one who used the term. Therefore, if you couldn't
define it, then you would using terms without knowing what they mean.
Which would mean that you are spouting nonsense. I am assuming that you
are not, therefore, taking the contrapositive, you know what it means.

Dictionary definitions won't help with this one. We are trying to
discuss concepts, not twisting around words (always with the exception
of Brian).

Do you understand Martin Luther King's/ Gandhi's/ Thoreau's concepts of
civil disobedience? It's a great tool against institutional oppression,
but not useful against a single (or small handful) of nutcases. Or a
nation of nutcases. If the goal of one side is to kill the members of
the other side, then non-violence on the part of the would-be victims
only ensures the peace of the grave.
