Comment: So we are free, even if there is government using force?

So we are free, even if there is government using force?

You cover a lot of what I was hoping would come up.

Even in a State whether or not someone trespasses is based on what you try to possess. As you said, where you are at, it would seem weird that someone would find it advantageous to walk through your property.

The Tao Teh Ching says (paraphrasing) "Have no treasurers, have no theft." That we draw theft in by what we attempt to own.

The Bible even says to not use force to take back items you feel were stolen from you, but let the natural law (the wrath of God) take care of it. Especially since God (or Love) is all you need.

You also sound very Buddhist (non-material) in how you would treat a trespasser.

You also choose which laws to obey based on a moral compass, and on the consequences of disobeying such laws.

In theory you "should" be able to drink from the watering hole when the Lion is around, but its not that smart. You aren't letting the Lion be a tyrant, you are choosing your battles (if you want to fight a Lion for water that is your "right").
