BaalChatzaf Posted July 4, 2013 Share Posted July 4, 2013 Didn't want to start a new thread so I did a search to find one relevant to what I was wondering:Is there a reason that the right to retaliatory force is as important on an individual level to the right to life, action, and property?Rand thought this right could be sacrificed, even though it is this right in particular that allows for civility. More accurately it is the expectation of retaliatory force that allows for civility (and therefore freedom), though not necessarily on an individual level.My other question is about consent. Why is 100% consent necessary for a government to be rightful? Surely those being arrested for breaking laws will disagree with those laws.Also: Has anyone read Escape from Leviathan?Thank you for raising Hobbes with Rand.
