Libertarian & Anarchist Non-aggression, Coordination, & Economic Assistance Pact
I. Libertarian & Anarchist Non-Aggression
The non-aggression principle (also called the non-aggression axiom, or the anti-coercion or zero aggression principle) is an ethical stance which asserts that "aggression" is inherently illegitimate. "Aggression" is defined as the "initiation" of physical force against persons or property, the threat of such, or fraud upon persons or their property. In contrast to pacifism, the non-aggression principle does not preclude defense. The principle is a deontological (or rule-based) ethical stance.
Rothbard described the axiom as such,
“No one may threaten or commit violence ('aggress') against another man's person or property. Violence may be employed only against the man who commits such violence; that is, only defensively against the aggressive violence of another. In short, no violence may be employed against a non-aggressor. Here is the fundamental rule from which can be deduced the entire corpus of libertarian theory.”
Member alliances shall not take aggressive actions, military or otherwise, against other member alliances. Member alliance recognize tech raiding to be an unjustified initiation of aggression against another nation and agree to refrain from the practice themselves. Those who tech raid are committing unjustified acts of aggression and can be attacked without violating the non-aggression principle to prevent them from causing further acts of violence against non-aggressors.
II. Cooperation & Economic Assistance
Signatories agree to cooperate with each other in trade deals, senate matters and technology trading. Signatories agree to consider any requests for military or economic assistance, although this remains optional. A designated forum will be setup for LANCE to coordinate military action and trade.
III. Membership & Amendments
Alliances seeking membership require unanimous agreement of current signatories and an alliance can be removed from LANCE with a 2/3 majority vote of current signatories. Alliances wishing to remove their signature from this document can do so with 48 hour advance notice. This treaty can be modified with unanimous agreement of all signatory alliances.
