Grasping at straws now...

The troll argument you have referenced suggests that since one may be unable to defend his/her natural rights in an anarchist society that natural rights do not exist at all. That is fallacious. That's analogous to saying that your right to defend your property does not exist in the case that your defense fails. This right extends to the defense of a state. So, let's consider that example. Suppose that China attacks the US with overwhelming force such that the US falls. Did the US not have a right to defend itself? Did property rights not exist simply because the state was unable to successfully defend them? The argument is bunk and would have been handily defeated had I been on that particular forum at the time.

The existence of natural rights does not forbid the possibility that natural rights may be violated.

Like I said, you're grasping at straws now, and it shows.
