...wrong with examining the underlying rationale and justification for things like the NAP and such, is there? Within the Liberty movement you'll find naturalists and theists and agnostics all wrestling with how to square libertarian/minarchist/anarchist/voluntarist political thinking with their own philosophical and theological frameworks for interpreting reality. My own impression is that Bill is just exploring which arguments are being truly consistent with their stated frameworks and their implications.
Certainly there is room in the Liberty movement for Constitutionalists, minarchists and anarchists -- and of course these people will have disagreements on what constitutes aggression or appropriate levels of government or what have you. Personally, I'm on the fence between minarchism and anarchism, but am leaning heavily toward the latter.
