Time to put the NAP to rest?

"The non-aggression principle is an ethical stance which asserts that 'aggression' is inherently illegitimate. 'Aggression,' for the purposes of NAP, is defined as initiating or threatening the use of any and all forcible interference with an individual or individual's property. The NAP is considered to be the defining axiom of the modern libertarian movement. However, there's a problem with basing an entire political philosophy on any single axiom: especially one so poorly defined that it remains a hot topic of internal debate. If the very basis of libertarian philosophy is ill-defined and subjective, how can anything branching out of such an axiom be viewed as legitimate?" (03/17/17)
