I did not know which forum this question was most relevant, but I would appreciate any insight.
Libertarianism is said to be based on the Non-Aggression Principle, that it is immoral to aggress upon someone else. My question is: What is the foundation for this claim? On what basis is the claim made that ‘people have rights’?
My dad’s argument is that the concept of “natural rights” requires acceptance of God. Is this accurate? What basis did the great libertarian speakers give for the existence of rights?
