And yet ...

there is a distinction.

If the author wished to endorse government force, the author would have stipulated.

The author is not endorsing something illegal and he obviously would not endorse government force given the vision and mission of Reason.

I think people that have a problem with legal coercion by private parties ... are struggling with the idea of property rights and the non agression principle.

It would be interesting to see if the author follows up with a clarification.

Most if not all force can be considered coercion according to these definitions. Not all coercion is force.

God Bless.
