Well, what do you think "aggression" is? What constitutes aggression in your mind?


You're ignoring this question, aren't you yamcha?

You said-

"I don't know what libertarians call aggression..."

I answered your question, and it would be polite of you to answer mine. Thanks.

Yes, you said libertarians use the dictionary definition of aggression. You've only changed this twenty-six times on me. You (and everyone else here) used to say it was force or fraud.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-aggression_principle

But since you can lie about the rules, you prefer to trick people over what words mean, rather than have a discussion.

I don't see why anyone should answer your question, but when I say aggression, the definition from the Non-Aggression Principle is what I mean.

When I ask if something is aggression, I'm asking if it violates the Non-Aggression Principle or any legitimate rights that libertarians have discovered - in other words, if the act is wrong enough that government should prohibit it.

Libertarians like to change terms and definitions so they don't have to have a discussion or answer those questions. Non-libertarians are forced to beg for answers, lest they violate rights unintentionally. If you were on the opposite side of this, you would see it as worse than dictatorship.

Still, libertarians are the ones who discover legitimate rights, so libertarians, and only libertarians, get to decide which rules are legitimate and which actions violate rights. They can lie about what they discover to gain advantage. There is no right to know the rules.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Hey idiots if you think redistribution is wrong then tell Opposition he can eat the amount of EBT food that he paid for in taxes then that is no redistribution he just ate his own food that he paid for.

You don't tell me I can't eat it and I don't pay taxes at all WTF maybe cause I will not buy your BS.

I don't know and don't think about it and am not really interested.  Just don't support any government anything.

If you really weren't interested, why did you ask me?

I'm not sure what libertarians would say to this.

I assume it would be something in the general realm of taxes being legitimate even if they end up getting misused.

So if I pay, let's say, $9000 in income taxes, that ought to be used for police, law, the courts, public school, and things like roads.

If $1000 gets used for redistribution, in the form of EBT, that was misuse, not theft, and two wrongs wouldn't make a right.

That $1000 was taken from the legitimate uses it should have gone to, so if I ate $1000 of food from the EBT programme, I would be, in effect, stealing from the legitimate non-redistributive programme the money ought to have gone to.

No, taxation is only legitimate when the revenue raised is used for legitimate purposes.

Taxation for the purpose of supporting crony corporations is not legitimate because the purpose is not legitimate or authorized. This applies to taxation for the purpose of the redistribution of wealth in general, which is not legitimate or authorized.

You mean like conquering citizens of States who withdraw their consent and try to leave the union and redistributing wealth to citizens who have kids?
