question about property rights and NAPSubmitted by Zebulon on Thu, 01/10/2013 - 19:36
Suppose we are living in a libertarian society and everyone has freedom of association, property rights and we all follow the NAP. Now imagine someone has a sign at his business saying no Blacks/Jews/Chinese etc. allowed. I wish to exercise *my* right to peaceably protest so I organize a sit-in with other Blacks/Jews/Chinese etc. When the owner asks us to leave we refuse. What steps if any is the owner morally justified in taking towards us? Can he use physical force to remove us? If he cannot physically remove us can he shoot us? Also by doing so would that not make him the agressor? Keep in mind this is a *peaceful* protest. Opinions anyone?
