Someone asks you pay a fee for a forced service and you peacefully pay it up because you know they have ability to ruin your life if you resist. Would you still consider it theft even if the persondidn't resist?

Depends on the service.

Mafia protection?
Obamacare?
Unions?

It is not theft.

If the means that are being threatened to ruin your life are illegal then it is extortion.

If the threat is legal, then it is your choice and not theft, or extortion.
