retaliatory force

According to libertarian code, violators of the NAP are subject to retaliatory aggression. All cops and politicians (who advance the state via aiding and abetting) are criminals. Obviously murder is not the correct retaliation for all criminals.

I wanted to point out that people who intellectually support the state are not violators of the NAP. But, as you said, they are the primary impediment to achieving a free society.
