Civil, On-topic Discussion of Anarcho-Capitalism and other Libertarian Topics.

MEMBERS ONLY - Civil, on-topic discussion of anarcho-capitalism and other libertarian topics.

Libertarianism is a philosophy that holds that one should not initiate aggression on person or property. Anarcho-capitalism is a political philosophy that advocates for the elimination of the state in favor of individual sovereignty, private property, and free market production of law and justice. Anarcho-capitalists believe that in the absence of a state or ruler, society would improve itself through empowering individual choice and the discipline of the free market, or what its proponents describe as a voluntary society.

Racism and Social Justice are considered off-topic here; libertarianism does not have a racial component. All posts related to racism and social justice must have some obvious link to libertarianism and may be removed at moderator discretion.

Is the NAP sufficient?

I've recently read into libertarian and anarcho-capitalist literature and am pretty compelled by the principles, however, there's one sticking point I've had with regards to the NAP, which is that there seems to me to be things which do not cause aggression, yet ought to be illegal. To use some examples;

  1. A while ago, a prolific hacker was put into prison for hosting a website which shared explicit videos of people without their knowledge. Assuming there is no direct harm (the individual doesn't find out), how does one use the NAP to disavow such an action? It seems possible that such a circumstance could yield no harm, yet it still intuitively feels "wrong" at some level.
  2. Deepfake - does using someones likeness in explicit contexts, or more broadly contexts which the original individual is uncomfortable with actually be illegal? Again, if we agree that this individual (let's say a celebrity) doesn't ever find out, isn't it the case that there was technically no aggression distributed?

The main response I've had to this is that what's being described is theft. Yet firstly, under libertarian mainstream philosophy, theft is the nonconsensual appropriation of some scarce and rivalrous thing - neither of which can be applied to an online photograph. Secondly, I would presume that the presupposition to why theft is wrong in this philosophy is that it violates the NAP and property rights, yet as mentioned before, property rights is not applicable to some infinitely replicable online data, nor is there necessarily any aggression in what I describe.
