Force and Fraud

It's that simple, when the government uses its guns to protect the fraudulent actions of corporatist joint ventures, this is an affront to the libertarian axiom of non aggression.

I may not use force or fraud to coerce others, you (as in everyone else) may not do likewise, and no group of others may as a collective conjure any ability in contravention to this axiom which they did not have as individuals.

It is legitimate to defend ones self, or seek help in the defense against such fraud and coercion. To the extent that individuals use the coercion of government (taxes from unwilling third parties) to aid themselves in this manner they are as guilty as the corporatists. Should an individual participate in a voluntary arrangement for mutual self defense, he is within his rights from a libertarian perspective.
