Can you consent to the initiation of force?
Does it violate the non aggression principle if an individual willingly signs a contract for which the penalty for violation is imprisonment or death?
For example, could you sign a contract with a DRO for which you agree to submit to execution if you are found guilty of murder? I am not interested in debating the merits of this particular punishment here; this is merely an illustrative example. After willingly agreeing to these terms you are then found guilty of murder and you change your mind and do not submit to your execution (totally understandably) and chose to flee instead, would it violate the NAP for the DRO to initiate force against you in order to enforce the contract and execute you?Filed under: Philosophy & Spirituality
