: I don't see what the problem is Gee. The non-agression theory fits perfectly with the kind of corporate capitalism that exist currently in America. Of course the non-agression theory fails to acknowledge that there are two sides to liberty: freedom to do something and freedom from something else.

I agree with your point. Force is difficult to pinpoint, to say "this is force" and "this is not", but it is a vital area - lest anything which may upset or alter another in anyway is considered to be force in the same way as shooting them is.

Hence the focus on 'negative rights' placing the perceived offender as being innocent until proven guilty and requiring rigerous quantifiable proof.

Describing a companys actions as force, without very specifically showing how, whom and what is the thin end of an arbitrary fascist like definition of force as "whatever I/we dont agree with".
