I want to rip off your logic and make passionate sense to you.

Thinksquad is an anarchist philosopher, and a strong advocate of social cooperation without aggression, oppression, or centralized authority.

Other people are not your property. In other words: They are not yours to boss around. Their lives are not yours to micromanage. The fruits of their labor are not yours to dispose of. It doesn’t matter how wise or marvelous or useful it would be for other people to do whatever it is you’d like them to do.

It is none of your business whether they wear their seat-belts, worship the right god, have sex with the wrong people, or engage in market transactions that irritate you. Their choices are not yours to direct.

They are human beings like yourself. You possess no legitimate authority over them. As long as they do not themselves step over the line and start treating other people as their property, you have no moral basis for initiating violence against them ‘ nor for authorizing anyone else to do so on your behalf.

    Just reading your post above. I totally agree. Every time a so-called mother takes the life of her child just because that baby is inconvenient to her current plans, she has stepped over the line and started treating that baby as if it were her property to be disposed of like an old dresser or an unwanted Christmas present. It’s so rare to see a person as open minded as yourself advocating violence against people who cross over the lines you have drawn (such as abortion). Go ThinkSquad!
    Oh, wait…is the jury still out on the abortion thing? What about capital punishment? Is it OK for a person to shoot the guard that is going to pull the kill switch, or maybe assassinate the governor because he won’t exercise his power to grant a pardon? Your words are ringing in my ears…”They are human beings like yourself. You possess no legitimate authority over them. As long as they do not themselves step over the line and start treating other people as their property, you have no moral basis for initiating violence against them nor for authorizing anyone else to do so on your behalf.” Wait, OK…so if a person commits murder, he has stepped over the line, so violence against him or her (i.e. capital punishment) would be OK. Still doesn’t answer the abortion thing, though. Lots and lots of people have the crazy idea that babies in the womb are actually babies. Then, there have been fetuses that have had the audacity to come out as babies as early as the fifth month and survive, even in states where the same “non-babies” can be aborted until the sixth month.
    So, to summarize, I’m thinking you’re OK with capital punishment because the offender stepped over the line when he or she committed the crime, and if a person truly believes that innocent babies are being murdered through legal abortion, they can take action to defend those children. Just sayin’…
