Justness, morality, and the NAP [Video]

By Ben Noble

Until recently my understanding of the Non-Aggression Principle was a little confused when it came to morality. I thought it was capable of determining if an act is moral or immoral, but I don’t think that is a good way to use it. The NAP is derived from self ownership and property rights therefore it is concerned with the movement of property and not necessarily with what actions are inherently “bad”. I would say that the NAP is about determining what is fair or just. Oh yeah, what up Austin Petersen?
