The “non-aggression principle” (NAP) is a cornerstone of natural-rights libertarianism, endorsed by the U.S. Libertarian party. The NAP is an ethical directive prohibiting aggression. There is debate among libertarians about whether there should be any government at all, but those who support the existence of a government generally believe that it should enforce the NAP.
