Nobody asked but …
If “might” makes “rights,” then they are “privileges” not “rights.”  This raises the problem that we have no concrete definition of “rights” in a statist context.  I really like Skyler’s idea that might includes reason, which has as much power to create structure as does coercion. I guess I don’t really adhere to the idea of owning a right, as opposed to property.   I am more impressed by fact. That each and every object (being, place, event, and thing) must occupy discrete place and time is a fact. None can occupy the same place and time as another. Fact. Beings possessing reason can get into relationships with any other places, events, beings and things … and those relationships occupy unique places and times. A voluntaryist honors relationships that are. She has a preference that her relationships continue, that all other relationships that include the NAP and reason continue.
