In reply to comment: You misread my post. Right (see in situ)

You claim that theft ceases to be theft if 51% agree to it.

Isn't that pretty arbitrary?

it is inconsistent for you to say that killing and rape are wrong even with a 51% vote but theft is not, why is stealing not stealing if a majority decide to steal?

If I take someone's property without their consent you would call that stealing, but if a large group gets together and the majority decides to to take someone's property without their consent you think that's just peachy.

"Non-Aggression principle is fine but rather meaningless and arbitrary without some kind of origin. I'm not even sure how that relates to what we are discussing. "

Are you kidding me?

The Non-Aggression Principle is the bedrock of libertarianism, to be a libertarian is to accept and adhere to the Non-Aggression Principle.

That is the entirety of libertarianism.
