Anyhow, after taking the many discussions into account what I was able to synthesize is:
"Violence is the intentional initiation of un-consented harm against another human being."
Each word in this is specifically chosen. I had a better word for "unconsented" but my brain has misplaced it. If something needs clarifying as to why it was chosen please ask, along with asking over any concerns or disagreements.

Hell to the no.
I'm not advocating vandalism, but to call it violence reduces any real meaning of the word.
