"I am not joking" -- I have no doubt

The majority of self-ascribed anarcho-capitalists out there have a very superficial understanding of the philosophy. But the philosophy itself is extremely logical and clear. I can give you the 10 second explanation of "violence" right now.

--To own something is to have the exclusive right to use it.

--To use something means to physically change it or its location.

--To use something which you don't own without the permission of the owner is a property rights violation, aka "violence."

Whatever it's called (violence, aggression, initiation of force, harm, tort), this is the "baddy," the "thou shalt not.." of libertarianism. The non-aggression principle could just as well be called the don't-violate-property-rights-principle...but that's not as catchy.
