Marketism/initiation of violence
Marketists argue that there is never any just cause to initiate violence (also known as the non-aggression principle) but also that threats to initiate violence qualify as initiation of violence.
This leaves open the following questions:
- Does any lethal threat qualify, or is there a "credibility" criterion?
- If a threat must be credible, how do we make that determination?
- Is escalation acceptable (i.e. responding with greater force than was threatened)?
- If so, is there any limit on how much escalation is acceptable?
