Reply To: Non-Aggression Principle


My dad would certainly say that people have “natural rights”. He just holds that those rights are God-given, and thus believing in God is a central component to liberty. Otherwise, he would argue, without God’s role in creation what separates humans from other animals? I guess he is skeptical of the idea that self-consciousnesses or self-awareness is what makes it wrong for one human to kill another human, but not for one wolf to kill another wolf.
