"A person who believes that no one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its initiation. Those who act consistently with this principle are libertarians, whether they realize it or not. Those who fail to act consistently with it are not libertarians, regardless of what they may claim."

Be it further known that the use of coercion, fraud or the initiation of force against my or my family's life, liberty or property by any individual, regardless of his title, uniform or associations, shall constitute a criminal act of aggression and that the aggressor shall bear full personal responsibility and liability for any and all consequences which result from his aggression and from my reactive defense against said aggression. Individuals who choose to aid or abet the aggressor by acting as his agents against my rights shall also be deemed criminals and they too shall bear full personal responsibility and liability for any and all consequences which result from their acts of aggression and from my reactive defense against said aggression.
The equal and unalienable rights of all individuals present and future are of far greater value than my single life. To do less than defend my rights to the best of my ability would be to shirk my responsibility to those individuals and to dishonor the sacrifices made by all individuals in the past who have fought and suffered for the cause of liberty.
