Is The State a form of cooperation?
Cooperation is inherently peaceful. But The State initiates force as its main tool of action. This contradicts the meaning of the word cooperation.
True cooperation is inherently win-win, while initiated force is win-lose. You initiate force in order to impose things on unwilling people. That’s not cooperation. It’s crime.
Libertarians believe governments must obey the Zero Aggression Principle. Governments must not initiate force. They must only use force defensively.
