Sometimes I wonder if “force” is the underlying motive behind everything?

I know we preach the NAP and that “voluntary association” between people who trade goods and services is the key to humanities success.

But then i wonder what keeps everyone honest in that system?

And it’s not just the…

Does the threat of force violate the NAP? If the threat is implicit rather than explicit would that change the possible violation?

Perhaps a better question is how the threat of force is “stored”. 

Is it an aggressive implication or a defensive implication.

For example are you saying agree with me or I’ll use force or are you saying that we had an agreement and if you violate it I might use force.

If it’s a defensive threat of force, I can see how that might not violate the NAP. 

Good points.

And it’s not just the capitalist system or the free market system. Every system, even those that lack structure; like cavemen who kill and loot. Is the use (or the threat) of force a fundamental part of life and the universe?

I really don’t have an answer or a theory or even an idea in either direction. I’m just thinking out-loud and expanding on tiny ideas. Maybe i’ll expand more on this later. 

Wisdom.

Wisdom.

“May I ask why you felt little Tiffany deserved to die?”

I’m pretty sure this is why Tumblr gave us photosets.

To this day, I still have absolutely no idea if he actually did the right thing by shooting little Tiffany. His story was very convincing…

You nailed it.

Government agents never have to be right or wrong. They just have to convince us that they were right and no one will question their actions.

Tom Woods: Secession Vs. Nullification

This was an excellent video. 

The immoral use of force is the source of man’s political problems.

Man, he left us with on hell of a farewell speech.
