Zero Aggression Principle

What is the Zero Aggression Principle (ZAP)?

The Zero Aggression Principle (ZAP)*  is the key libertarian idea. It says — Don’t aggress against others, personally or politically. That means…

  • Limit force to defensive purposes (e.g. criminal justice)
  • Let people live by their own conscience, provided they permit the same to others.

Libertarians want a world where governments only use force defensively — no aggression! If this idea attracts you then please join us. Subscribe! And share this page with others!

* – Zero Aggression Principle and the acronym ZAP were first coined by L. Neil Smith as an alternative name for the Non-Aggression Principle with its too pacifist-sounding, lethargic acronym, NAP.
