Violence

Violence is the expression of physical force against self or other, compelling action against one's will on pain of being hurt. Variant uses of the term refer to the destruction of non-living objects (see property damage).

It can vary from between a physical altercation between two beings where a slight injury may be the outcome to war and genocide where millions may die as a result.
