Non-Aggression / Non-violation of Rights
- Law of Equal Freedom - "Every man may claim the fullest liberty to exercise his faculties compatible with the possession of like liberty by every other man."
- Herbert Spencer, Social Statics
- Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) - in the context of civilized society, aggression is morally wrong.
The initiation of physical force, the threat of such, or fraud upon persons or their property, is inherently illegitimate.
(with a few exceptions, e.g. "propaganda by deed" in late 1800's, early 1900's)
