Does Pacifism lead to a less violent society, or does it lead to appeasement and hence to more violence?

Regards,

Den.

Unfortunately I feel that "Pacifism" has to be enforced due to our flawed human nature.

Also, if one remains a pacifist when action is truly required then it can lead to some very bad effects. Just have a look at our world today.... Sad
