Questions for my fellow libertarians who are atheists?Submitted by RussellMeansFan on Wed, 05/28/2014 - 19:54
To all libertarian atheists,
Why is aggression wrong? I assume you support the NAP, as do I. But why? What happens to people who violate the NAP? There is no natural "punishment" for rights violations. It's not like physical laws that I can't disregard. If I jump up, gravity pulls me down. If I violate someone's rights, nothing happens to me.
If you say it's just inherently wrong, that's fine. I'm not quibbling with that. But it is a moral statement. But if are just a bag of chemicals and not a creation of a divinity, why does it matter if our supposed "rights" are violated?
